Help! Paris shortened to one day!

Jump to last reply

We had planned a great jam-packed two days in Paris that was to begin tomorrow. However, our flight was cancelled and so now we will be reduced to one day - in fact, likely 10 hours!

Is this doable .... (I know it's horribly rushed and likely offensive to those that love to linger on the amazing sites in Paris. We simply just don't have the time.)

Louvre @ 9:00 am- 11:00 am - likely will see only a couple of paintings, I know :(. It is still worth it and is a must.

Check out Notre Dame sadly just from the outside (unless miraculously there is no line)

Vedettes du Pont Neuf boat tour

Then walk to Tuileries Gardens to the Place de Concorde
Walk up the Champs D'Elysees part way - basically to see the Arc de Triomphe and get some pictures

Eiffel Tower - prebooked tickets at 5:00

We are a family of 5 and have been touring the past 3 weeks. Our children enjoy sightseeing and do not complain or tire easily. They are not a hindrance at all.

Any thoughts if this is doable? We have had to drop some things - the Catacombs, Luxembourg Gardens, St Chapelle, Musee D'Orsay... :(

We hope to walk as much as possible to enjoy the city on our own day. I'd love some feedback!

Thanks :)
