Heading back to Paris!!! (Itinerary)

Jump to last reply

So very excited: We are finally heading back to Paris! We visited in 2003 (9 days) and 2005 (5 days) and loved it but had to see other places before heading back…

Hubby, me and our niece, 19, for whom the trip is a graduation present, will be there from Sunday, 13 May until Monday, 21 May (8 sightseeing days). This is niece's first trip to Europe and I want her to love Paris as much as I do! We are staying at one of "Pascal's Apartments" (rue de l'universite, across from Mus. Quai Branly) chosen in part because of the awesome Eiffel Tower view—which niece requested.

We will buy 4 day Museum Passes; carnets of tickets for the Metro; prebook sights if possible… I want to balance museums, shopping (niece loves; I hate; hubby doesn't care), down time to watch Paris go by, nice meals, etc. We used Rick Steves on our previous trips so have purchased his 2012 Paris for guidance along with Eyewitness (such a gorgeous book) and Fodors.

I worked out the following itinerary and would appreciate your thoughts.

Sunday: Arrive CDG at 8:15, taxi to apartment, leave luggage (can't check-in until mid-afternoon). Walk over to the Eiffel Tower (prebook tickets for ?? time), have lunch at 58 Tour Eiffel, enjoy the views . Back to apartment for a rest then out to dinner somewhere nearby (possibly Cafe Constant)

Monday: Jacquemart Andre Museum; Opera Garnier; shopping at Galeries Lafayette or Printempts. Kind of an easy day—not sure how niece will manage jet lag.

Tuesday: Day trip to Giverny (leave apartment early enough to catch 8:15am train to Vernon); return to Paris and head to Montmartre (Sacre Couer, walk about)

Wednesday (Day 1 of Museum Pass): Notre Dame, Tower climb, walk about, Amorino vs. Berthillon taste test, St. Chappelle, Conciergerie, ...

Thursday (Day 2 of Museum Pass): Versailles day trip

Friday (Day 3 of Museum Pass): Louvre, (??l'Orangerie), Champs Elysees for window shopping/people watching, tea at Laduree, Arc de Triomphe

Saturday (Day 4 of Museum Pass): Orsay, Rodin, Army Museum and Napoleon's Tomb, (??l'Orangerie today?)

Sunday: RS Bus 69 "tour" from Eiffel Tower to Bastille, wander back to the Marais from there, shopping, stopping as we please.

I really wanted to tour Hotel du Ville but I don't think we can manage it. I really want to see the Monets at l'Orangerie.

Would love your thoughts about the itinerary. Would appreciate suggestions of places to eat (hubby wants to eat well, but we can't break the bank…).

Thank you!
