Contiki European Panorama - Day 4: Paris

Today take the opportunity to visit the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Arc de Triomphe or the Champs Elysées. Tonight, why not complete your Parisian experience with a French meal and a famous Parisian cabaret

Went shopping on the Champs Elysees and it was disappointing because I didn't buy anything. Walked down to the gardens, the obelisk, Seine, and National Assembly and Arc de Triomphe. Then meandered to Musee d Orsay and I had a nutella crepe - and thus begins my obsession with nutella and having it everyday at breakfast.

Contiki has these "optional excursions" - which I recommend that you do go on because most of the hotels that we stayed at were outside of the actual city. For example, if I were to do a Contiki tour of Edmonton I think they would pick a hotel in Sherwood Park.

Optional Excursion:

Moulin Rouge
Enjoy an evening at the world famous Moulin Rouge cabaret. The spectacular show includes dancing girls, dazzling costumes, live animals and a variety of comedy acts. A sumptuous three course meal (including drinks and champagne during the show) will make this an unforgettable evening.

Best described by a fellow traveller as a "classy strip show" as the girls were bare breasted. It was entertaining, and I think this is where Britney Spears got her idea to dance with a snake, as a girl swam with a snake on stage!  They also had little ponies on stage. We had french onion soup, the steak was really dry but the fries were okay and the dessert was ice cream with some liquer.
