Enjoy the view from the top of the Eiffel Tower or Tour Montparnasse (the only place in Paris where you can’t see the ugliest building in Paris), ride the RER to Versailles, take the “secret” back entrance into the Lourve and skip the line to see the Mona Lisa. With no tour guide to follow or pre-planned sight-seeing schedule to adhere to, you are free to explore the “most romantic city in the world” however you wish. If you asked 50 different people to describe the best way to spend a day in Paris, you would get 50 different answers. Don’t settle for someone else’s pre-packaged day in Paris seeing what they want you to see. When you download a free e-travelguide for your phone or tablet from Army Libraries you can make your trip to Paris your own.
