Hotel Exposition Tour Eiffel
Travel Blogs from Paris
Today we were going to spend some time at the Louvre which is a massive building containing a lot of old paintings (including the Mona Lisa) and sculptures etc. Napoleon brought back a vast amount of art from the countries he conquered and although he gave a lot of it back, there is still a large amount in the museum.
As usual we caught the metro there and it wasn't too far to walk from there. It really is a huge building as you may be able to see from ...

We now travel along the Champs-Élysées, where opulence abounds among the historic buildings and today's most fashionable and up-market shops.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Exposition Tour Eiffel Paris
We arrived at Paris before the check in time and found the hotel already prepared our room. The hotel is not big but homey and nice. The staff is helpful. They speak English too. They understand that we come from tropical country so they set the thermostat that made us warm.
