Welcome to the Louvre Palace, a beautiful enclosed space including the famous pyramid and oh-so-beautiful architecture. The second day of our weekend in Paris included trying to see as many famous and beautiful points of interest as possible, and The Louvre was naturally on the list. It certainly didn’t disappoint; if I didn’t mention it enough in my other blog post, [ Ruffles in Paris ] I am smitten with this city. That evening, my boyfriend and I spent a good 45 minutes sitting in front of the Notre Dame as the sun was going down, eating our must-have macaron of the trip, bells ringing, and watching it glow in the growing darkness.
Some sights are just too much for words, and looking back at the photos, they do the monuments no justice. You will have to take my word and visit if you have not already! Compared to my last post, the weather was much cooler, and towards the end of the day, my wool coat was no longer enough to keep the cold out. I am glad that I layered a turtleneck underneath, but only the promise of seeing more of the city kept me out in the dark and cold evening. Once the shops had closed, and we had had our fill of wine and champagne, we wandered home in the chill, and were able to see one last glimpse of holiday lights decorating the white-stoned neighborhoods.
I always love hearing from you in the comments, let me know your favorite city to see at the holidays, or anything else you would like to share!
