Paris by day

All about La Tour Eiffel and admiring it from every angle on our second morning in Paris. We went up to the second level to admire the view but couldn't stay out in the open area for long as huge lumps of ice were dropping down from the top all the time. We were lucky to be able to go up at all as it had been closed for several days due to the snow and resulting dangerous conditions.
After this, we visited the Palace of Versailles. The opulence of it all! We couldn't believe our eyes.
Dinner was at Moulin Rouge where we saw the sensational show and some dazzling (and daring) costumes.
Unforgettable day.
