We took the #69 bus to the end of the line and the first place we came to was Hotel des Invalides.
In the war it was the hospital for injured soldiers and they used to man the cannons to protect themselves.
This building with the gold statues was at the other end of the street.
Boat trips were available down the Seine.
Helen, Emma and Lin pointing as we were walking along the Seine, at what I have no idea!
Next stop, Eiffel Tower.
Emma, Helen and Lin sat under the huge structure, with a leg in the background.
A selfie with my arm in the way and half the Eiffel Tower in the background!!
Next we went to the Arc de Triomphe. Lin and Helen went up it, so will have some fab photos to blog when they get home.
Wanted to see the Champs-Elysees as that's where the Tour de France cycle race always finishes, on the cobbles!!
Looking down the Champs-Elysees.
A well needed rest in the Jardin des Tuileries, the park at the end of the Champs-Elysees as we walked the full length of it.
Another mural from a wall in a tube station but we hit that many today we can't remember which it belongs to - oooops, sorry!! Been reliably informed it was Clemenceau metro station - thanks Emma
Emma, our tour guide, deciding how to get us to Notre Dame.
As you can see, the weather was perfect. This is Notre Dame from the front.
Helen, Lin and me in front of Notre Dame.
The side of the bridge was absolutely covered in padlocks. Apparently, you get a padlock, write your message on it and then lock it to another one already on there.
Lin and Emma on the bridge.
Helen, Lin and me on the corner of the bridge with the back of Notre Dame behind us.
Down the other side of the river were all arty crafty stalls selling books, paintings and prints.
Then we went to Basilique du Sacre-Coeur which is a very religious building and as you can see, was very busy.
This is the view looking down from the same building.
Then we stopped in the square, Place du Tertre, for some refreshments.
Alcoholic ones of course!!
And our final stop was to Moulin Rouge.
And finally a view from the window of the main road our hotel is situated on.
And the park across the road.
We had a very well travelled day, but we are all totally exhausted now!
