1, 2, 3: Get lost inside le Louvre, pass by Mona Lisa´s room and get mesmerized by her coy smile and if you like ancient jewelry, be enthralled by the museum´s jewelry collection. Even the bishop´s crozier is bejeweled!
4: Admire the Sainte Chapelle´s amazing ceiling, structure and colorful stained glass windows.
5,6: Fall in line(entrance is free!) and admire the sculpture and stained windows of the Notre Dame. By this time you´re very tired and so take a rest at the park/garden at the back of the church. Later you can cross the small bridge and have your lunch at one of the numerous creperies and restaurants in the small island.
7,8: After a light lunch, take the metro and go to Montmartre and visit the Sacré Coeur. Be careful of your camera, the guards don´t usually allow picture taking nor filming while inside the church. After a short prayer or rest, get out of the church and take a walk around the place. The artists usually ask you if you like to have your photo drawn/sketched. Careful, careful, the asking price could be steep but if you have the budget for it, why not? ;) You can also have a crepe as a snack at one of the numerous creperies lying around. ;)
9: To cap off the day, buy some wine and cheese and have a picnic on the grounds below the Eiffel Tower. You can also go up if you like and admire the French skyline from the top! I wasn´t able to do this because it was raining like hell during that time.
These are just standard places to go but there are a lot of nooks and crannies waiting to be discovered in Paris. More to follow.
Lastly, I´m wearing a necklace in red and blue( I missed the white,hehe!) as a tribute to the French colors, red, white and blue:

A bientôt, petite bises!
