First time in Paris

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are flying to Orly on August 2nd and staying in Paris for a day. Getting in at 11:00 am and training out from Gare de L'est at 8:00 pm the next day. it's our first time in Paris and I would appreciate suggestions on how best to use the time to see a few of Paris' highlights. We are both foodies so while we are on a budget, I would like to squeeze in memorable dining experiences, whether in a bistro, a cafe or a take out for lunch or snack. We would like to take in the sights of Paris and will do the boat ride on the Seine at dusk, as suggested in other threads.
Lastly, because we will be traveling for 18 days, we have a lot of luggage. I thought staying at a hotel at the train station is practical (10 arondissement) as we can leave everything there until we are ready to leave. Does that make sense? Thanks!
