Paris: Day Three.

The first thing on our itinerary for Day 3 was… EIFFEL TOWER!!! Actually, it was trying to figure out how to get to the Eiffel Tower. We took the Metro and instead of jumping onto another train, we decided to walk from the station to the Eiffel Tower and I didn’t realize we had a 15 minute walk ahead of us. Anyways, we finally made it!!

After the Eiffel Tower, we walked along the Seine and made our way to Musee de l’Armee, which is a museum on France’s army; and Eglise Saint-Louis-des-Invalides, which is a church where a few of France’s war heroes are buried, like Napoleon.

After, we walked towards Musee D’Orsay. Unfortunately, due to the floods that happened the week before, Musee D’Orsay was closed until the next day. So we walked back to our hotel to rest and get ready for dinner.
