So, my next morning was spent at many of the famous landmarks in Paris - no trip is complete without an Eiffel Tower visit, right?
We then went on to Versailles. I had not visited the palace before and although terribly busy with tourists, a definite must-see. I had re-watched one of my favourite films, Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette before the trip, so that I could envisage the queen walking along the corridoors with her entourage, dressed in her finery. I think the pictures speak for themselves, opulence at it's most opulent.
We then went on to the fair that runs alongside the Jardin des Tuileries, inspired by some pictures you may have seen before.
Final stop for the day, le Marais. Again, another area I liked very much. I only wish I had had time to visit through the day and wander through the little streets, popping in and out of the gorgeous shops. This has got to be one of my only holidays where little shopping has taken place - and I'm not proud! However, a lot of yummy food and drink was consumed, wasabi coated nuts...
... and the best gelato I have ever tasted from Amorino - raspberry and chocolate were the flavours of choice - scooped into the shape of a flower no less!
Tomorrow, will be my final post on Paris. I do hope you're enjoying my journey as much as I did!
