Paris - Day Two

On day two we headed straight to Place St. Michael in the Latin Quarter to meet up with the New Europe Free Walking Tour (a recommendation from our hostel roomates). It poured rain the entire day but that didn't stop us from walking around Paris for a good five hours, seeing all the major sites. Even though we much prefer the freedom of taking our time and choosing our own route for sight-seeing, the tour really was quite informative and our guide was entertaining so it was a good way to spend a rainy day.
We headed back to our hostel after the tour to change clothes (we were soaked) and have a little rest and then found a little restaurant in Montmartre for an early dinner. Afterwards, we returned to the plaza below Sacre-Coeur (our friend from our first night was nowhere to be seen) and climbed up the stairs to the Basilica.
We headed back to our rooms around 9pm because we could both feel colds coming on and thought a good nights rest might be a good idea.
