We decided that today was the day we would conquer the catacombs. We tried this with Sadie several years ago but could not handle the lines. Today we were there at 9:00 for the 10:00 opening. I would estimate we were about 100 people from the front. They let 200 in at a time. The prospects looked good.
10:00 arrived, no movement. 10:15 about 10 people appeared to enter. Slowly about every 15 minutes a few more people would enter. We were near the entrance. The line now snaked about 400 people behind us. Finally at 11:00 we made it to the door. We entered and once we were underground saw very few people. Definitely worth the wait (sorry Sadie, we’ll do it next time we’re in a Paris).
We then went to Bon Marche, another food heaven (and one of Carolyn’s favorites). We got wonderful sandwiches and quiches then headed to a nearby park for lunch.
We then walked through the Hotel Invaldes, across the “Adele Bridge”, bought more food and headed home.
