Fri 9 Dec Got off to a later start – drizzled until noon. Went up to the top of the Eiffel Tower in the lift. It’s much higher than the 2nd floor which was as high as I had previously been. The view was great – could see many of the places we had visited.
Took the Metro to the Jardin des Plantes area and had lunch in a lovely French restaurant. A fixed price €14 for main and dessert. The food was fantastic. Matthew had trout and crayfish tails. Saw an excavated Roman arena and then walked through the Jardin des Plantes.
