Completely Overwhelmed!! 2 day Paris Itinerary Help!!

Jump to last reply

I have been scouring this site and many others for months to try to come up with an itinerary that works. I am completely overwhelmed!! My husband and I are going to be arriving in Paris at 1:45pm Sept. 1st. Our flight leaves Orly at 8:30pm Sept 3rd. We are staying at the Hotel Du Cadran near the Eiffel Tower.

I have been looking at guided tours but can't decide if those are a waste of time and backtracking because they don't actually go into any of the museums/monuments.

These are the things I know we want to do:

Eiffel Tower
Louvre (quick visit to see the highlights)
Notre Dame
L'Arc du Triomphe
Champs Elysée
Sainte Chapelle
BHV
Seine 1 hour river cruise
Sacre Coeur and Montmarte
Invalides
Walking tour of Montmarte (2 hours) maybe?
rue cler
romantic dinner somwhere

Also should we purchase a museum pass and book all the activities ahead of time? Do you have any websites you prefer for booking? I have seen so many sites that offer skip the line tickets but I don't know if those are legit or are overpriced etc.

I'm sure I am forgetting some important things to see. I can rattle off places but I have no idea how to put them together. I have looked at a map to try to make an itinerary but it is not working. TIA!
