Paris for Beginners: Introductory Walking Tour

OR "How to see a lot in one day"

Part I (morning):
We started at Place de la Bastille (metro= Bastille), then walked past the Hotel de Ville (City Hall).  We continued walking along the Seine and crossing the river onto Ile de la Cité (City Island) to see Notre Dame de Paris. We made a (totally unnecessary) stop at Shakespere and Co, and then detoured through the Jardin du Luxembourg before heading towards Rue du Bac (St. Suplice on the way).

Part II (afternoon):
We walked on the lovely Rue du Bac to get to the Tuileries, taking a left and walking right through (bypassing L'Orangerie Museum). From the Obelisk of Luxor at Place de la Concord we headed up the Champs Elysée, ending up at the Arc de Triomphe by sunset.
