Paris Diary: Day 3 | Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum and Seeing the Mona Lisa


On Day 3 of my cousin and I's visit to Pairs, we decided to visit the Eiffel Tower which we literally could not wait to do. As you can see from the picture below, the weather was terrible. Unfortunately this meant that the view from the top of the Eiffel Tower was very limited because of the clouds. Nonetheless, it was absolutely breathtaking to see the beauty of Paris from such a high view, and it was worth the 2 hour queue in the pouring rain. 

We then travelled to the Lourve museum which again, we could not wait to do. It is such a big museum that we felt lost and didn't know where to start! Once we gathered our bearings, we went to see the Mona Lisa which was an amazing experience. There were people completely surrounding the painting like they were paparazzi, taking as many pictures as possible. Luckily, I was finally able to get a good view of the painting and even take a picture. It actually surprised me how small it was, and it was also surreal to see it in real life after only ever seeing pictures on TV or the internet. 

Afterwards, we just went for a little walk (in the rain!) and saw some lovely features such as the fountain and the Concorde. We decided it was best to come home though after the rain did kind of tire us out. We made a pact to come back the next day and see everything properly in hope the weather would improve.
