4 Days in Paris May 2014 - Can we do all this?

Jump to last reply

We only have 4 days in Paris and would like to make the most of the short time we have. It would help us to get some advice on how to best organize the things we would like to do. We are staying very centrally at the Hotel Saint-Louis en L'Isle. We like to balance indoor museum visits with outdoor gardens, etc.

MARAIS: We love to walk and love interesting neighborhoods. I'm particularly interested in the Marais and would appreciate any advice on specifically where to walk to see some of the old winding streets we've read about.

CHURCH CONCERTS: We would love to attend any evening concerts in cathedrals. I've had a hard time finding specifics, in spite of several great threads with links. There is a concert at Notre Dame mentioned on one site, but when I click the link to buy tickets it says nothing is scheduled that night.

Does the following make sense? This is our first trip to Paris.

SUNDAY MAY 4:

(arrive CDG 9:40 am; drop off bags at hotel and walk locally)

Isle D'Cite walk:
Notre Dame
St Chapelle
Conciergerie

Evening: walk along Seine or boat cruise (Vedettes de Paris?)

MONDAY May 5:

Louvre
Tuileries Gardens
Champs Elysees
Arc d'Triumphe
Eiffel Tower
Evening: church concert?

TUESDAY May 6:

Musee D'Orsay
OR Musee de Cluny (medieval)
St Sulplice
Grande Mosque for tea
Luxemborg Gardens
Pantheon
Evening: Cantigas de Sancta maria concert NotreDame (how to get tickets?)

WEDNESDAY May 7:

Marais walk
Picasso Museum
Place des Vosges
Pere Lachaise Cemetery
Memorial de la Shoa
Evening: Evensong at Notre Dame 5:45 pm
OR Louvre open until 9:45 pm Wednesday night

Any other general advice would be most welcome. I have spent hours searching the Forum and have gotten so much great information already from many of you.

Merci! Leslie
