Paris is so picturisque. It's by far one of the prettiest cities I have ever seen. Between the streets, the Eiffel Tower, and the bridges there is nothing short of wanting to take a picture of EVERYTHING. The husband and I knew that on our trip to Paris that we wanted to a picnic at the Eiffel Tower. We bought some cheese at a local fromage store on Rue Cler and then bread from a bakery near by. We bought about or bubbly rosè and some meat as well.

TIPS:
- To get some of the best photos of the Eiffel Tower head to the Trocadero (where the staircase photos were taken).
- Rue Cler is a street full of fromage stores and bakeries. We got our cheese from La Fromagerie. The sweet Parisian guy behind the counter was super helpful on giving us suggestions and letting us taste the cheeses. He also knew the perfect amount to cut for us, we just told him enough for the two of us for a picnic.
- If you like truffle you need to get the truffle cheese from La Fromagerie

On our first full day (with an actual night's sleep), we spent the morning at The Louvre and the rest of the day wandering around the city. I spent a lot of days wearing these Zara sneakers as we did nothing but walk. Which honestly was the best way to see the city. We got to find amazing little side streets with beautiful windows, and old stores. Plus, lots of walking + rosè + lots of food = amazing nights sleep.

TIP FOR THE LOURVE:
- Get tickets to the Lourve prior to your trip
- Get there EARLY. We beat the crazy line and the mad rush to see the Mona Lisa.
