Paris, Summer 2002


Without a doubt, the Eiffel Tower is the most spectacular sight in Paris. A ride to the top platform affords a view unequalled anywhere else in the city. At night, the tower is truly one of Paris' "lights" and is a beacon for many young parisians to meet and picnic with friends, etc. on the Champs du Mars. Great place for a gathering and even though there are hundreds of people there each night during good weather, there are no problems involving police, etc.Quick Tips: Get to the tower early in the morning.

Nice hotel on a very sweet market street that has been made pedestrian only. A treat after being out in the city all day to come back here where things are mostly quiet. Very close to the Eiffel Tower and to Ecole Militair. Air condidtioned rooms, if needed. Best rooms are in the front of the hotel overlooking the market (although the market wakes up pretty early). Post office at end of street; laundromat around corner; ATM across the street and plenty of food available. Clean; good maid service; less expensive than a lot of other hotels. Thanks, RoughGuide for the recommendation.
