Louvre visit, plus more…

Paris, France After a late night we didn’t awake until 8.30am so a very late start by our standards. Headed to the Luxembourg Gardens where Hugh and I ran/shuffled our usual 6/7km run. The gardens are beautiful and it was a fabulous place to run in Paris. Back to the room for our usual brekky overlooking the streets of Paris followed by a croissant as we headed out for another day of sightseeing. Headed off towards the city, or so we thought, before realising we were heading in the wrong direction. Finally got to Saint Chapelle where the top floor of the chapel is wall to wall of the most beautiful lead lighting we have seen. Headed next door to ILE De La Cite Conciergie which had an amazing formation of arches so a good start to the day so far. Next on the Agenda was Notre Dame so off we headed, in the wrong direction of course, but managed to not get too far before realising we were heading out of the city instead …
