Earlier in my mom and sisters’ visit we decided to hop on a Batobus and ride along the Seine. I had never done this and it was such a wonderful experience to see Paris from the water. It’s a completely different view! The weather here has been unpredictable, to put it mildly, and this was never so apparent as it was on this 45 minute ride. We boarded in a torrential downpour broken up by bits of sunshine.
The lovely Musée D’Orsay
We got off at Pont Alexander so we could get some crêpes for the hungry travelers.
The flower beds on the Champs Élysées were beautiful. What a fun afternoon! The weather made a perfect backdrop for seeing the city in all its glory and drama. I would highly recommend a boat tour of the city. If you want to just see the city and not have commentary, the Batobus is the way to go. Otherwise, there are all sorts of tour companies who will provide commentary in dozens of languages.
