Paris was a late decision for us.  Kara and I had both agreed that we didn’t have any real desire to go outside of seeing the Eiffel tower, so we made the decision to make a 24-hour pit stop.  The city far exceeded our expectations, and long story short, we will definitely be returning.  I had expectations of Paris being a cheesy dirty town, much like the Paris of Disney World, but it was honestly a clean and beautiful city.  Almost every building is topped with ornate statues, or filled with intricate carvings.  The level of detail put into the architecture itself was astounding.  If you are an art or even just a museum lover in general, you could enjoy weeks in Paris making your way through over 70 museums within the city.
