Arc de Triomphe - Day 5, Part 3

After a a day of wandering in and out of the rain and hours in the car, we were a little worse for the wear. But we unloaded in a nice hotel just off the Champs Elysees and slowly made our way to magnificent Arc de Triomphe.

We were exhausted but made the climb anyway. Views from the top of the Arc are too great to miss.

Paris is most amazing when it glows at night. The pictures do not to justice the way it feels to see the lights turn on when walking down the Champs or watch the Eiffel Tower or Sacre Couer gleam in the distance. It seemed seemed fitting to say good-bye to Paris from such an amazing vantage point.
