Paris, Day 2

inside of notre dame

Today we had a later start, sleeping in a bit to recover from our long day of travel. After showering and dressing, we headed to Ile de la Cite to check out Cathedrale Notre Dame de Paris, which, I must say, WAS AMAZING. The picture you see above, in fact, was taken by Valerie inside near the back.

After Notre Dame we headed to La Conciergerie‎, which was originally a palace before being converted to a prison – it’s where Marie Antoinette spent her last days. After THAT, we headed over to Saint Chapelle‎, a smaller yet incredibly more ornate church on the island.

Food highlights include Brasserie Les Deux Palais‎ where we had cappuccino, croissants, and the most amazing orange juice I’ve ever imbibed, and then some random crepe shop on the sidewalk where I had a sweet crepe with applesauce. Dinner, which was supposed to be at The Hidden Kitchen (it’s mysteriously fallen through, it would seem), is to be determined, but I imagine it will be excellent regardless.
