Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace then off to Paris!

Both Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace do not allow pictures plus it was pouring rain so nothing to share.  I will say that I love Westminster Abbey, loaded with history, a very special place.

Buckingham Palace was interesting, grand as expected, and one of the few places I have not seen in London.

So bright and early the next morning we were off to Paris.

We took the 2.5 hour ride to the city and our tour company graciously picked us up at Gare du Nord for an afternoon tour.

First stop was Sacre Coeur and a fabulous view over the city.

including this view of the Eiffel Tower.

I managed to take this one picture of the interior of the church before I got into trouble, not realizing photos were forbidden....

The streets around the church are very much what you would expect to see and it was here that Midnight in Paris was filmed.

And this is the only vineyard found within the city.  Our driver told us the wine wasn't very good though.

Then it was on through the streets of this beautiful city.....

Then we arrived at the beautiful Notre Dame...

Known for thier stunning windows, my pictures do not so them justice, especially the rose window.

I love this view of the cathedral!

Then on we went.....
The Invalides......

The Eiffel Tower....

And the Arc de Triumphe.

After dinner at Cafe Du Marche on Rue Cler we prepared for our Paris by night tour.
