Today was packed with lots of things to see. Our first stop was Montmartre which rises out of the flatness of Paris with its myriad of small streets which have been both homes and studios to a preponderance of the west's great 19th and 20th century artists from Degas to Monet and Picasso to Dali. At Montmartre we visited the Sacre Couer with had magnificent features inside and out. Next to Montmartre's new art market centres on Place du Tertre where “starving” unknowns offer paintings for sale. Many children had their portriats done which I am sure you will all be looking forward to seeing. You can decide if the picture is a caricature or the real thing!
Next we hopped on the bus and were taken to the Eiffel Tower. Before taken the journey up the tower we ate lunch first then start ascending the magnificent tower. The children loved the journey in the lifts with many squeals of delight being heard.
After the Eiffel Tower it was straight down to river for our boat trip on the Sienne. The scenery was fantastic with the added excitement of a pigeon inside the boat!!
It was back to the hotel for tea then the creme de la creme - a tour of Paris by night. Out commentator delighted us with his witty lines and endless information.
Lights out when we came back as DISNEY tomorrow.
PS - some teachers on coach 2 have a very sweet teeth!!!
