Paris: A Picnic Under the Eiffel Tower

After shopping at the markets of Rue Cler we made our way over to the park beneath the Eiffel tower. It seems to be a rather popular spots for middle school kids to take their lunch breaks, but that didn’t bother Brian or I. Yes, that is a giant tennis ball hanging off the tower. While we were in town, the French Open was in play. There were huge screens closer to the base of the tower playing the event, and even some I’m guessing what would be exhibition matches on small courts as well. The thrill of tennis is quite lost on me though, so I just focused on the beautiful weather. 

We came back just in time to see the lights!

  1. Hello Paige your picnic looks lovely! I’m getting ready to travel to Paris myself! i wanted to know if they allow you to drink wine in public picnic spot like this! thank you!

    1. Yep! When we went an bought our wine, he gave us the plastic cups, chilled, and uncorked our wine for us before we left the shop. People even try hocking overpriced bottles of wine all throughout the park, especially before the lights come up on the tower. But with anything, I think moderation is key.
