Jump to last reply

Hello, my wife and I planning an 8-day vacation to Paris (after a week in London) in the last week of September. We are both 40 years old, no kids and we live in Chicago. We are staying in the 8th Arrondissement. I would appreciate some critique of our tentative itinerary.





Day 1 – Friday, September 20

· Train from Paris arriving 10:15 am

· Night boat ride of Seine



Day 2 – Saturday, September 21

· Arc de Triomphe

· Opera House

· Sacre’ Coeur - Montmartre

· Eiffel Tower (8pm Skip the Line Tour)



Day 3 – Sunday, September 22

· Travel to a vineyard



Day 4 – Monday, September 23

· Louvre – won’t use entrance by pyramid



Day 5 – Tuesday, September 24

· Versailles



Day 6 – Wednesday, September 25

· Saint Chapelle - morning

· Notre Dame – free tour 2:00 or 2:30

· (Archeological crypt below Notre Dame)

· Deporation Memorial

·



Day 7 – Thursday, September 26

· Musee D’Orsay

· Marais (walking tour 2:30)





Day 8 – Friday, September 27

· Musee D’Orangerie

· Musee Rodin

We are planning on purchasing the 6-day Paris Museum Pass. We’d like to travel to a vineyard on Sunday. We love red wines so any suggestions would be appreciated.



I would appreciate any feedback on our itinerary. Does anyone have any specific tips they’d like to share? Are we not hitting any must see sites for a first time visit? Do the days appear to be laid out well? Thank you in advance
