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.
