After Sacre Coeur, we picked up Grandpa from our hotel and made our way to the Arc de Triomphe via the Metro.

We made our way underground to stand beneath the arch. There was a special memorial ceremony going on there.

After, we took a walk down Champs Elysees to find a restaurant for supper. The place was hoppin’ with tourists. Everyone was outside enjoying the great weather.
