wow! What an amazing second day in beautiful Paris (even when it rained during our tour). I got to see many of the famous landmarks the the. it's is known for, and even got to have lunch right by the Palace of Versailles.
The day started off with a bus tour around the many landmarks Paris is known for, such as, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, arc de Triomph, the fountain from "The Devil Wears Prada", the smallest house of Paris, the National Assembly, Norte Dame (again) and so much more!
Next, we headed to the Palaceo f Versailles, where some girls and I found a fancy restaurant with an interesting background. The restaurant, Au Chapeau Gris, was built in 1874, making it 143 years old!! Their menu told the story of how it used to serve people coming to Versailles to visit the palace and do business, but stopping (in their carriages) for good food to eat.
We all ended up ordering delicious serloin with a side of baked potatoes and parsley. It was a memorable meal I will most definitely not forget! The story we found made it all the more authentic, and the Palace of Versailles was breathtakingly beautiful.
In the evening, we had delicious chocolate tart, and it was some of the best chocolate dessert I've ever had (I even got a second slice from a friend that didn't like it)!
My grouo finished off the day with a remarkable Sine River cruise that lasted about an hour, pointing out the sights of Paris from the water. I took amazing pictures of the Eiffel Tower, and even got to see the restaurant that inspired the Disney film "Ratatouille".
The day itself was remarkable and the food I tasted gave me such an outlook into the culture of France, and I am so happy to be emersing myself into the city of Paris :)
My blog is all about faith, family, friends, and food:)
