I will be on a business trip to the Netherlands for 2 weeks and would like to visit Paris on the weekend of 12th and 13th May. I will be staying at Den Bosch and the train ride will be about 4.5 hrs to paris with a fare of about E100 one way.
I would like to see the Eiffel tower, louvre museum, notre dame church, boat ride on the river in Paris.
1. if I travel on friday evening to paris and reach pairs Nord about midnight are there good hosetls where I can stay for 2 nights with prices around E30 / night, just want a place to sleep at night, nothing more.
2. Are there any places other than those listed above which I can visit in Paris ? Especially since I have 2 full days and 1 full night ( I intend to take a night boat tour of the city and also night visit of eiffel tower )
3, Are there any guided bicycle tour of the Paris city which I can do on the second day ?
Any other suggestions also are welcome.
FYI, I have a valid schengen visa and other than travel from den Bosch and Paris , I can spend about E80 / day for food, site seeing etc.
