Paris II

This time I decided not to travel with a direct train to Basel but with a stopover in Zurich. In Basel we met a friend of mine and went to Starbucks to chat and drink some coffee. Then we took the bus to the EuroAirport.
The flight was pretty short and we could see a beautiful sunset from the sky. In Paris we took the train to Gare de Nord where we took the metro to our hostel on the Montmartre Hill. We just left our baggage there and went on the way to the Tour Montparnasse, with 210m the tallest skyscraper in France. The 58 floors of the tower are mainly occupied by offices, while two floors are open to the public: The 56th floor with a restaurant, and the terrace on the top floor. Up there, we had an absolutely stunning view of Paris!

Back on the ground, we bought something to eat and went to the Champs-Elysée and walked up to the Arc de Triomphe where we took the metro back to our hostel.
