What happens when two close family friends land up in a foreign country but at two different locations at the same time coincidentally!! Yes... they plan trips and who rejects the idea of going to Paris together? NOONE right? :-) Yes, my family and my dear friend Manjunath's family decided to do the trip to Paris together.
My family started off with direct TGV train from Stuttgart to Paris since we stayed near to Stuttgart and my friends family started from Koblenz to Paris. My son was excited to drive in the fast train. I think it reached max of around 380km/hr :)
On the way, we got to know that my friends family has missed the connecting train to Paris and they will be delayed by roughly 2 hrs. Oops what to do, we cannot stop our train ;) so, we decided to go ahead and wait for them at Eiffel tower.
We had booked our accommodation at Grenelle Paris Tour Eiffel Hotel. Located in the stylish 15th arrondissement, the Grenelle Paris Tour Eiffel Hotel will offer you an exceptional setting during your stay in the capital city.Only 90 metres away from the metro station La Motte Piquet Grenelle, the lines 6, 8 and 10 will give you an access to the touristic spots of the city.At 630 metres (690 yards) away from the Champ-de-Mars, you will enjoy an exceptional view over the Eiffel Tower.
After keeping our bags in the hotel, we directly walked to Eiffel tower :) We had booked the ticket to its top floor at 13:00. We suggest to plan your visit in advance and book skip-the-line tickets to avoid long wait times.
