PARIS: Picnic at the Eiffel Tower

Paris in the springtime is beautiful.  The weather is warm, everyone is out and about and the sun doesn’t set until 10pm.  What more could you ask for?

The Eiffel Tower is a must-see when you travel to this city.  Built in 1889 for the World’s Fair by Gustave Eiffel, it has become an icon of France.

A great way to check out this historical sight is by a picnic!  Relax, eat some good food and enjoy the sights around you.  (Side Note: If you haven’t seen my post on fancy picnics, then I suggest you check it out. :))

Our first day in Paris we wandered over to the Eiffel Tower and did just that.

We meandered along the Seine, taking our time as we made our way over to the 7th.Paris, France, Europe, Travel, Paris in One Week, Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Seine River, Jardin du Luxembourg, Covered Passages, Trocadero, Giverny, Saint-Germain-des-Pres, Le Marais, Montmartre, Sacre Coeur, Cookn' with Class, 6th arrondissement, St. Germain, Bar du Marché, St. Germain-des-Pres Church, Pierre Hermé, Freddy's, Cosi, Fish la Boissonnerie, Josephine Boulangerie, La Dernière Goutte, Picnic at the Eiffel Tower, Le Tour Eiffel, 7th ArrondissementParis, France, Europe, Travel, Paris in One Week, Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Seine River, Jardin du Luxembourg, Covered Passages, Trocadero, Giverny, Saint-Germain-des-Pres, Le Marais, Montmartre, Sacre Coeur, Cookn' with Class, 6th arrondissement, St. Germain, Bar du Marché, St. Germain-des-Pres Church, Pierre Hermé, Freddy's, Cosi, Fish la Boissonnerie, Josephine Boulangerie, La Dernière Goutte, Picnic at the Eiffel Tower, Le Tour Eiffel, 7th Arrondissement
