My last stop on spring break was Paris. I spent a few days in Paris so I saw almost everything! It was a busy time but well worth it. Being a student in the UK/Europe, you can get discounted (or even free!) admission to most museums in Paris. I took advantage of this opportunity even if I wasn't 100% interested since it was worth it.
My first day in Paris I did a hop-on/hop-off tour since I really enjoyed it in Barcelona. The big difference in Paris was the streets were always busy so the one day ticket wasn't completely worth it. If you go to Paris I recommend doing a multi-day ticket if you're interested in it. Anyways, I saw a lot of sights on this trip. We passed Napoleon's tomb, the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower, and more! It was really cool to get the lay of the land and know where everything was located (or at least the general area).
I decided to start my sight-seeing inside some of these places and decided to climb the Arc de Triomphe. It was a cool climb and the view was pretty cool too. The steps reminded me of the castles I've climbed except half-way up there was a mini museum and a gift shop with some information about the Arc.
