Paris}The Champs Elysees and the Louvre

After leaving the Eiffel Tower we strolled down the Champs Elysees. Really, we walked rather fast because we had a lot to see during our two day stay in Paris.

We passed by the Place de la Concorde, one of the major public squares in Paris.




And we continued down through the Tuileries Garden.


And we saw lots of pretty things on the way. Not a lot of flowers but some amazing sculptures.



There at the end of the Gardens was the Louvre!



You could spend the entire week in the Louvre and we only had a couple of hours so we decided there were two things we had to see. This pretty lady...


and this pretty lady....


and along the way we ran into this lady - Miss Nike!

The Louvre is an amazing and beautiful place and we had a hard time taking all the prettiness in!



The Louvre is as pretty inside as it is outside.


From the Louvre we kept on going and headed towards Notre Dame - coming up next.

If you missed Paris}The Eiffel Tower be sure and check it out!

We only had a couple of hours in the Louvre--felt like we were just running by so much history and so much talent. THANKS for sharing!
