travel tuesday // arc de triomph

last week during Travel Tuesday, I shared about our delightful day in Montmartre. What I didn't mention in that post is that after our beautiful adventure, we headed to the Arc de Triomphe to get a quintessential view of the city. We used our handy-dandy Paris Museum Pass to cut through the long lines and voila! we were ready to ascend the many steps up to the viewing area of the Arc. 

 This has become my favorite Paris viewpoint (tied with Notre Dame's bell-tower view!)

    1. I love YOUR pics, especially your most recent one with the Swiss Countryside! It brings me back to the days when I adored (and was slightly obsessed) with the movie Heidi! I could just picture her living there!

    1. Aw, that's how I feel about the Eiffel Tower! I walked around it and sat on the green lawn near it, but never made it up there!

  10. Beautiful photos! I made it to the top of the Arc once but sadly the weather was not cooperative. Maybe I'll make it back some day and try again. It's great to see what the view looks like on a sunny day :)
