First timers to Paris - 5 days early November

Jump to last reply

We will be taking a transatlantic cruise leaving from Barcelona on November 15, so decided we we'd fly into Paris pre-cruise for 5 days, then fly to BCN for a couple of days before boarding (we've been to Barcelona several times, but this is our first venture to Paris. We are active 70 somethings :) and do a lot of walking. I'm aware of the typical Nov. weather - we've never let weather keep us from doing the things we want to do, so that's not a problem.

Fortunately, I was able to get a room at the Renaissance Paris Vendome using Marriott points (includes breakfast which is a plus for us) and we're thrilled to be near the Louvre and many other points of interest. What I need from the wonderfully knowledgeable people on this forum are ideas for how to plan the itineraries for our time in Paris.

We arrive at 8:50 AM and plan to arrange transportation with a shuttle from the airport since we'll have quite a bit of 'cruise luggage' with us and don't think we could manage on public transportation. Our typical plan on arrival day is to get into our room as early as possible - or check our luggage and go to a local cafe for an early lunch until it is ready, then shower, take a quick nap (short) and walk around the Jardin des Tuileries and along the Seine until we find a place for dinner. We hope to go to bed close to a normal time (depending on how much sleep we get on the plane) so that we can begin a full day of sight-seeing the next day.

Ideas for grouping the sights so that we can do separate areas each day?? We, of course, want to visit the requisite museums, churches, monuments, but are most interested in local areas, small restaurants and shops frequented by Parisiens and places you are familiar with that might not be on the typical tourist itinerary.

I have not made my flight reservations to Barcelona yet, but hope to get a flight early afternoon on our last day that would have us leaving the hotel late morning or a bit later. So..we will have 4 full days in Paris plus the day we arrive and a few hours on the day that we leave. I would be ever grateful for your thoughts, ideas and tips. Thank you!
