Friday - day 7

We planned to spend most of this day near the Seine River, so walked over to the Quai du Louvre and and purchased one day Batobus passes for €13. Batobus is the "hop on, hop off" water bus through the heart of Paris.

As it worked out, we took only the one cruise, going up river to two stops to Port de la Bourdonnais, at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, opposite the Trocadéro.
