3 Day itinerary in Paris help!

Jump to last reply

Me, my wife and our 2 year old son is going to Paris for 3 days in March. For the 3 of us, it is our first time and we are just wondering if anyone could offer us any advice on our 3 day itinerary. What we should see, what we should avoid, good places to eat etc.? We arrive early and is staying at Mercure Haussmann Saint Augustin hotel. We love walking and seeing landmarks and not too much high in museums but would go to must see ones if there is time.

Also, we arrive really early (7am local time) so we probably will just drop off our stuff in the hotel then head off). Considering we have our 2 yr old son with us, what is the best way get around the city?

Thanks so much for whatever information you can share!

    Where are you staying?

    I'd probably do one day in the Notre Dame area. River, flower/bird market, Sainte Chapelle for nice windows, Ile St Louis for ice cream and Seine cruise nearby.

    Louvre area has nice park/garden/water area (Tuileries) where I believe you can rent a small sailboat for floating in pond.
    Champs Elsee, Arc de Triomphe, Palais Royal (also has neat architectural items kids will like), Angelina's for desert and hot chocolate.

    Luxembourg Gardens are nice. Could bring lunch, check out water areas, and they have puppet shows. Can't remember if you can rent sailboat here also for play. Cluny museum is small and might be OK for a visit, has marble heads, tapestries, and roman baths. Also, Blvd St Germain is nice place to stroll, with market area on rue de Buci, and opportunities for a crepe or two.

    Eiffel tower, approached from Right Bank, Trocadero would be good, Fountains this side, park & tower across bridge to Right Bank.

    Place des Vosges is great square, with shops under arcades, sometimes some performers, and play area in the center of the square.
