We checked out of the Novotel this morning and headed to Frankfurt Main HB, train station and boarded our train to Paris.
After several hours, we arrived in Paris at 5.50pm and caught a taxi to our hotel Elysees Union on rue de l'Amiral Hamelin. We left the bags and headed straight to the Metro (which was easy to use, every line is colour coded and the ticket machines have an english option), and caught a train to Charles de Gaulle Etolie, mind you we could have walked, to see the Arc de Triomphe, walk down Champs Elysees and a few surrounding avenues. We got dinner at a local cafe, mainly to get out of the cold, and then walked back to the hotel around 10.30pm to get the kids to bed.
We can see the Eiffel Tower from the front of our hotel.
How exciting to finally be in Paris, can not wait for tomorrow.
