Day 3: Les Quatre Temps and Views From Top Of Eiffel Tower
Visiting the fashion capitol of the world and not buying anything does not sound sensible. I really really wanted to buy something, may be a purse or a dress or something. Of course we are on budget and wanted to limit my spending.

Shop at Les Quatre Temps:
Finding a shop/mall that gives a great deal is next to impossible at Paris. After doing extensive research, my husband found a shopping mall almost very far from the city, Les Quatre Temps. We decided to give it a try. So, on the third day our morning plan was to visit this mall. This shopping center was connected to La Défense metro station.
Even in this mall it was difficult to find a good deal. I actually wanted to buy a handbag. But could not find anything that was less than €100. I felt it was not ‘worth’ it. So ended up not buying any handbag. I did however, find a good deal at a store (closing sale). So I ended up buying a skirt. That was it for shopping :(. We completely forgot to explore La Grande Arche de La Defense, which was very close this shopping mall and a modern take on ‘Arc’, which geographically aligns with Arc de Triomphe and Louvre Museum.
After having some tit-bits to eat at the mall, we returned to our hotel room and for the first time we got some rest. We slept for a couple of hours and were fresh for the Eiffel Tower visit. Being smart this time, we left early around 4:30 p.m.
Where to buy Eiffel Tower tickets:
If you observe the Eiffel tower, it has three levels. You can purchase tickets to any of the three levels. Of course when you are visiting, you should go to the top. You may buy the elevator tickets online as well. There are audio tour apps available too.
