Day 26 - Monday 17th May - Paris - Louvre, Montmarte, Sacre Coeur

Left Lyon and drove directly to Paris arriving at 2pm where we had our tour of the Louvre. Saw the famous Mona Lisa painting, the Venus de Milo statue plus so much more. It was all great. Seeing the glass pyramids was also great. We left our tour group here. They returned to the hotel while we walked through the park to the Concorde, saw the Eiffel Tower in the distance and then took the Metro (Paris underground rail system) to Montmarte. Took the funicular up the steep hill to see the huge Sacre Coeur church. It was beautiful. We walked to the artist area behind where we also had dinner in a very old restaurant - the food was delicious!
Returned to the hotel using the Metro after going to see where the famous Moulin Rouge cabaret show is performed.
