Alpine Magic-Paris Photos-6/2010

We tacked 5 days in Paris on at the end of our Alpine Magic adventure. This was on our own, but I figured I would post some of the photos as some Disney ABDs go to Paris and there have been some questions regarding Paris. Again, it is primarily photos with a brief description (not a comprehensive "Sayhello" type of trip report).

The view from our hotel. The good was the view. It felt like we could reach out and touch the Eiffel Tower. The bad--the AC didn't work in our room and it was about 90 degrees in Paris. We ended up staying in the room, keeping the door open at night and the hotel gave us 2 fans. We managed to stay cool at night.


The view in the evening:


Views from the Eiffel Tower:

The Trocadero:


Aiden, Jenn, and Rich on the Eiffel Tower:


Just a different view of the Tower from the base at night:


Notre Dame:

Outside of the cathedral:


Cool picture inside the cathedral:


The gargoyles guarding Notre Dame:


The Arc de Triomphe:


More stairs to climb at the Arc:


A view of Sacre Couer from the top of the Arc de Triomphe:


From the Streets of Paris:

Aiden and Jenn in a garden:


Love the architecture and the wrought iron balconies:



Sacre Couer and Montmartre:


Aiden sat for a black and white drawing. At one point we had about 12 people around us just watching the artist work. Not easy for a 7 year old to sit still for 45 minutes.


The Louvre:


The Louvre goes on and on and on...


The Palace of Versailles:

Aiden biking the grounds of Versailles:


Enjoying a picnic on the grounds of Versailles:


Outside the Palace:


Rodin Museum:

This museum has a ton of recognizable and great sculptures. It seems as though this museum is often overlooked, however.

The obligatory photo of the Thinker:


Rodin's "The Three Shades"


Sunset on the Seine River

Sun setting over Paris:


Notre Dame silhouetted by the sunset:


Hope you enjoy and feel inspired to travel and experience the world where ever it may take you (from your backyard to the far reaches of the globe).

Very nice pictures. I especially like the one of the three thinkers! I got a lot of those type of pictures from Italy. They seem silly when you're taking them, but they sure are a lot of laughs when you look at them later.

Great photos RSM! Which hotel did you stay in? That is an amazing view of the Eiffel Tower, but what a bummer about the AC problem. Thanks so much for posting!

Great pictures! And with a view like that, I'd've probably kept the room, too! Glad you were able to cool it off at night at least!

Besides the Eiffel Tower ones (wow!) I particularly like the one of Sacre Couer in the distance. It kind of looks like it could be in Istanbul or something.

The London/Paris ABD is definitely high on my list of "to do's".

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.
