Virtual Tour of Paris

I don’t know about you, but I’m already bored. As someone who likes to travel both near and far, this period of social distancing has launched my wanderlust into overdrive. I’m not sure when travel will actually be on the horizon (I’m hoping our family trip to the north woods of Wisconsin and Minnesota will still happen in June), but in the meantime, a girl can dream of going to Paris.

Fortunately, there are a number of free virtual tours available. I’ve scoured the internet to bring you the best ones of Paris. Shout out to Google Arts & Culture (download that app if you haven’t already!) and Google Earth for a number of these.
