The Icon....La Tour Eiffel

We took The Romance Tour of the Eiffel Tower.  This was our tour guide.  Cute as a button!!

Part of the tour was seeing the hydraulics that life the elevators.

Another part of the tour was getting to go up on the roof of the restaurant. 

The gold dome building is Les Invalides. Among other things it is the burial site of Napoleon

The Champ de Mars
