A first day's adventure in the 6th...

Jump to last reply

I will be in Paris in August, staying in the 6th for the first couple of nights. I arrive early in the morning and while I might be sleepy, I would like to make good use of my first wonderful moments in Paris!

I thought I would ask to leave my luggage at the hotel and go wandering. Does anyone have any good suggestions for a lovely brunch type meal? I thought I would wander down to Notre Dame and take a little walk. I don't want to go to a museum the next day due to jet lag. I thought perhaps a Paris Walk tour in the neighbourhood and a evening boat cruise.

I love to hear all the suggestions. If I feel well, I might even try to climb Notre Dame....which leads me to my next question...my son told me it gets pretty narrow as you get closer to the top...does anyone know if the climb is similar to St Paul's in London. I made it half way up and got a bit shaky...

As I read this, I see this is not much of an adventuresome first day and a bit - I think I should tweak it a bit...with pastry (any suggestions there?).

Thanks to all!
