Our first Europe trip was to visit London, Amsterdam, and Paris. When traveling from Amsterdam to Paris, we met in the lobby of the hotel at 4:00 a.m. The driver was the only one working, everyone was either quiet or going back to sleep on the coach. With 312 miles (503 km) or 5 hours of driving from Amsterdam to Paris, getting on the road early was the only way we could have more time for sightseeing.
The time we arrived in Paris, it was in the morning rush hour. During the two-day tour in Paris, we visited the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Palace of Versailles, Notre Dame and took a boat ride on the Seine River for a birds-eye view of the city.
