Paris Part 3: Louvre and Eiffel Tower

Today we woke up early to head over to Sainte-Chapelle.  This is an incredibly awesome church that was built in the 13th century.

Afterwards, we headed over to Pompidou Center for some modern art.  From Pompidou, we made our way to the Louvre.  We skipped the long lines by buying a museum pass and our first stop was the Mona Lisa.

After Mona Lisa, we walked through the Italian, Egyptian, and Greek sections and ended the museum visit with Venus de Milo.  We made our way to the Eiffel Tower for our 7:30 reservation.  The views from the top were spectacular.

We ended the day with a return visit to the Louvre for some night pictures of the fully illuminated pyramid.
