We took the #69 bus from rue de Rivoli to the Eiffle Tower. Got there around 6:00pm walked around just admiring it. I think they have painted brown since the last time I've seen it. We went to where the Seine river cruises are and choose Bateau Parisienne. It is an hour cruise down the river to the Ile de Cite, around the Isle and back to the Eiffle Tower. It's a very good introduction to Paris. When we got bacl to the tower it was lit.
