This was a get away for a day activity for me! I was in Brussels, so I took a train to Paris just for the weekend. I have been to Paris a few times, visiting sites, eating, but this time, I wanted an experience.

once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During
