Paris is one of the greatest cities on earth. There is so much to see there and the food is incredible. Lynne and I timed the trip so we would be there for Bastille Day. The French know how to throw a party. The parade lasted for about two hours starting with the air show and then all the troops marching down the Champes-Elysees and ended later that evening with the most incredible fireworks show at the Eiffel Tower that lasted over 45 minutes. Contrary to what you hear the people were very friendly, just a wonderful trip.
