We left Bastia very early to return the rental car and go through airport security to board our flight to Paris on time.

From Paris CDG airport, we headed straight to our hotel near Gare de l’est to drop our luggage. We then headed to Eiffel tower by the subway. As we could no longer book ticket online to go up, there was tons of tourists waiting for 1 to 2 hours to get up.

We headed on the other side of the Senne on a nice view point for the Eiffel tower.

From there we walked to the Champs Élysé, to the Louvre then along the shore of the Senne, to the Notre Dame Cathedral.

We later met a friend around Parmentier subway station, went for diner in the area. We had a look at Moulin Rouge at night and walked back to the hotel.
