Saturday 7/26: We flew into the airport pretty late on Saturday so we took a taxi straight to Jason and Wiston's hotel who let us crash there. When we got there it was already 10:30 so we decided to go to the market and make some food and drink wine before bed. We had to wake up early to get a jump on the city, so wanted to have a low-key night. We watched Adam's go pro video so far and it was awesome, it made us stoked on the rest of the trip.
Sunday 7/27: Adam, Jason, Wiston, Tori, Rachel and I got up early to take the subway to the city by 9:00 am. We started with a bus tour of the city, which started at the Eiffel Tower so we were able to check that out before the bus drove us all around. It stopped at all the big tourist spots like the Louvre, Parliament buildings, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame, The Grand Palace and so much more. We got off at the Louvre and went inside mostly just to see the Mona Lisa, which was different from what I expected. It was a lot smaller and seemed like a normal painting, but it is very famous which still made it cool to see. We obviously took selfies with her. After that, we were lucky enough to be right on the fence when the Tour de France rode by and got to see the last leg of the race. It ended about a half hour after they pedaled by us. We waited for them to ride by for about an hour and it only lasted about 4 seconds so that was kind of annoying… but how many people can say they saw the Tour de France and Mona Lisa in the same day? We saw Lovelock Bridge and a chalk wall that everyone writes on and hung out there for a little while. The bridge has the most amount of locks I've ever seen; it's quite amazing. After we went to dinner and all tried escargot, (snail). It was cooked in a pesto sauce and was actually really tasty. After dinner we sat at the Eiffel Tower to drank a bottle of wine and watch the lights show.
Monday 7/28: Our last day in Paris we woke up early to hit the city one last time before our flight home. We went straight to the Eiffel Tower to shotgun a beer for American. It was awesome. After, we waited in line and went to the top of the Eiffel Tower for an awesome 360-degree view of the whole city, one of the most beautiful views I have seen in my life. After that excursion we made our way to a boat tour, which went by all the major spots yet traveled on the river. It was a cool way to see the landmarks from a different perspective. Then we had to make our flight back to Rome to sleep in the airport before our flight to Amsterdam.
