We stopped at a Farmer's Market on our way back to the apartment for lunch. The food there was so delicious - I love being able to get fresh breads, baked goods, fruits, and vegetables all right there for you to have.Then we went to see the Grande Arche - a modern version of the Arc de Triumph.It is also on Avenue des Champs-Élysées just like the Arc de Triumph so from the distance standing under the Grande Arche, we can see the Arc de Triumph.

With Monday as our last day in Paris, our goal for the day was to start with the Eiffel Tower and end with the Louvre, and that's exactly what we did. We first went to the Eiffel Tower - it is so impressive, and you just don't understand until you see it in person. I've seen so many pictures and the sight has been in so many movies, but it's totally different once you actually are there at the Eiffel Tower. Nikki and I made the decision to be healthy/cheaper, and to climb the stairs to go up the Eiffel Tower. We took the 780 stair trek all the way up to the second overlook. Then, to go to the very top, we took the elevator for another 40 stories. So exhausting to go all the way up, but so worth it! The view was unbelievable, and you get to feel like you are on top of the world. It was fun to be able to search and find all of the different tourist spots from the Tower.
