First Paris trip--5 nights

Jump to last reply

Our first trip in Early October 2016, other than an overnight stay years ago. Interested in museums, Renaissance to Impressionism, churches, and wondering around, shopping, people watching at cafes, etc. Trying to see things while still having time to enjoy just hanging out.
Is this itinerary too ambitious for a couple 60+ active seniors?
Monday--arrive around noon from Normandy. Staying at small hotel in 6th between Luxembourg Garden and St. Sulpice. Plan to visit garden, maybe picnic lunch, walk around St. Germain-des-Pres and dinner in 6th that night. If mood strikes us, may go to either Museum Delacroix or Pantheon (Museum Pass).
Tuesday--day in the 7th. Metro to Orsay for morning. Lunch (suggestions?) on way walking to Invalides/Napoleon Tomb and Rodin. Afternoon at Invalides and Rodin. Metro back to hotel. Late afternoon and evening exploring 6/5th some more. Dinner in 6th.
Wednesday--day in 1st and 4th. Metro to Place de la Concorde. Quick visit to Orangerie. Walk thru Tulieries to Louvre. Spend rest of morning and part of afternoon at Louvre. Lunch, a snack in Louvre or outside restaurant(suggestions?). Walk to St Chappelle and Notre Dame. Walk to and explore Ile St. Louis. Dinner on St Louis. Taxi to hotel. Realize this is a busy day. Plan to take time to stop at cafes along the way. Probably will not spend as much time at Louvre as some folks would as we know we are coming back.
Wednesday--Versailles. A must. Spend the day. Kings apartment tour to help with waiting in line issues. Dinner on Calife boat for dinner cruise on the Seine.
Thursday--Montmartre/shopping around Opera area. Metro to Abbesses station and furnicular to top of the hill. Visit Sacre Coeur (must for my wife), walk around area, down to Rue des Martyrs for lunch. Afternoon, Metro to Madeleine, visit church, shopping at Fauchon, etc to way to Galeries Lafayette. Visit Opera house if time. Evening and dinner in 6th.
Friday--late morning TGV train to Provence.
Main question is whether this is too much to see on each day, especially on Tuesday and Thursday.
Thanks so much for your advice.
