Sightseeing in Paris, France
On our last trip to Paris we spent a few days wandering around the city snapping photos and admiring its beautiful architecture and popular sites, including the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Arc du Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, Moulin Rouge and Sacré-Cœur Basilica (which offers some of the best views in Paris).
We lucked out with the weather, blue skies and perfect summer temperatures, so most of our exploring was by foot and stroller. Although Paris is not a baby friendly city, Baby B was a real trooper and actually napped in his stroller for the first time. Unfortunately that trend seems to have been left in Europe.
Here are a few photos from our day of sightseeing in Paris.
