Day 4 - Paris - Red Bus Tour & the Tuileries Garden

After the Louvre we decided that even though it was cold and dreary outside we would still take a ride on the double decker red bus as we had planned.  It was definitely cold and windy and sprinkling rain the whole time but we made it around the full 2+ hour loop!  The bus took us to all of the major attractions and described everything in English, which was key!

After our bus ride, we walked through the gardens in front of the Louvre called the Tuilleries Gardens.

Paris is much further ahead of Nashville in terms of fall.  By the time we left, the colors were amazing!
