3 days Paris -Trying to fit everything in

Jump to last reply

My sister-in-law (W), her daughter (K- 24 yrs old) and I will be in Paris the end of June. I have been before but this is W and K's first trip and I'm tailoring it to their likes. They will be there 4 nights with a day trip to Versailles on the last day. I will be there 5 nights. W and K are not interested in museums, unlike me. But we all love to walk taking in the beauty of the city, the gorgeous architecture, pretty parks and gardens, enjoying a relaxing hour or so at an outdoor cafe, strolling through winding streets, stopping in a small shop (not a shopping trip by any means). Visiting churches, sitting at cafes and having a bottle of rosé.

I'm having difficulty with the itinerary. We would like to go to a flea market and thought Puces de Vanves would be better since it is smaller. Afterwards we would like to go to Place des Vosges for lunch and there is nothing direct (looks like 3 train changes) to get there. Would I be able to find a cab instead?
Here is what I have so far:
Saturday
• Arrive in Paris @ 8:30am Walking Day
• Pont Neuf Bridge to Louvre
• Tuileries Garden
• Place de Concorde
• Champs D’Elysees to Arc De Triomphe
• Eiffel Tower
• Park Champ De Mars
• Rodin Museum Garden
(Besides Rodin Museum Garden, if we are up to it, we won't be going in sites)

Sunday
• Flea Market either Clignacourt or Puces de Vanves
• Place des Vosges
• Marais District (I heard Sunday was the best day)
• Place de Bastile
• Pantheon
Catacombs
• Luxembourg Garden
• St. Sulpice

Monday
• Montmartre
• Sacre-Coeur
• Place Du Tertre
• Sainte-Chapelle
• Notre Dame
• Love Locks Bridge
• Isle St .Louis

I never had any desire to go to Paris in summer but there are some advantages such as longer days and, I would assume, it would be more lively at night. So maybe the Marais area or Isle St. Louis can be explored in the evening after dinner. Are shops open?
Any suggestions about how to arrange my days would be appreciated.
Thanks so much.
