I had never been to the top, so we made the climb up the steps to see the beautiful view of Les Champs Elysées. We waited there as night descended on the city, watching as the Eifel Tower lit up for the evening.
Going back to the Metro station, we returned to the Marais to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, Au Gamin de Paris, where we both had the steak au poivre vert with the mushrooms as an appetizer, after being served a kir while we awaited our table. After a long, relaxing dinner, we returned to Paris Nord just in time to take the last train back to the hotel.
The next evening, after our business meeting, we returned to the city, this time taking the funicular to Montmatre to see the Sacre Coeur. After seeing the stunning views of the city from there, we had some wine, cheese, and charcuterie at Au Pichet de Tertre.
Then, we took in the spectacular night time views of the skyline and the Sacre Coeur.
Walking down the hill, we headed into Pigalle to see the Moulin Rouge.Finally, we stopped into Chao Ba for a drink before returning to the hotel for the evening.
