Today - Monday 2nd May, we set off early, walking in light rain (we had our raincoats prepared!!) to locate the France com offfice in rue Echelle where we'd be catching our tour bus for the loire on wednesday - good to know if it was an easy walk - and it was quite good - just half an hour!!
We then discovered the L'Open Tour hop-on hop-off bus, We booked two days of bus touring and sat on the open top deck to learn about the main sights - we managed two tours today with a little hopping on and off and will tackle two more tomorrow.
The building architectures are just mind-blowing and the traffic - well we did not see any accidents but the roads were very busy with cars, heaps of motor scooters and many courageous cyclists ! Thank goodness that the buses seem to have their own transit lane and many streets are one way.. We had English commentary via ear phones that we plugged in to the bus seats.
We decided to hop off the last tour at a spot closest to the studio and found it an easy walk!
