This Sunday we were blessed with beautiful clear blue skies in Paris, and to make the most of this perfect weather, myself and two friends headed up the never-ending 284 steps to reach the top of L’Arc de Triomphe. It was both a triumph for us climbing all those steps, and a triumph to the city of Paris – Paris, you are breathtaking. From the top you can see the stunning views of France’s capital from 360 degrees. This is a definite must to anyone visiting Paris, and better yet, it’s free for those under 25! I will be coming back up the Arc de Triomphe, that is for sure. Next time I would love to the city when the sun begins to set. To finish off this magical day, we then strolled around the Jardin des Tuileries and watched the sun setting with sublime views of the Eiffel Tower in the distance.
