Help with itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone. Planning a trip to Paris and London for July 2017 and have figured out an itinerary but need to know if it makes sense, if I have too many things on one day versus not enough on another day. Any imput would be helpful.

Will be going with hubby, 17 year old son (who just wants to spend time in front of his computer!) and 9 year old daughter (who still gets cranky when hungry!).

Day 1: landing from Toronto mid day, taxi to hotel, check in. Not sure how much to fit in this day, since no idea what shape we'll be in after flying all night. Right now, only thing planned is River Seine Cruise.

Day 2: Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Champs Elisees, Alexander bridge, Place de la concorde, Tuileries Gardens. Feels like a lot, but they all seem close enough to each other. Restaurant options for lunch?

Day 3: Louvre, Palais Royale, Musee Gourmand du Chocolat, Sacre Coeur. Too much? Restaurant options?

Day 4: Sainte Chapelle, Notre Dame, Luxenbourg Gardens, Montparnasse Towere. Lunch options?

Day 5: Day trip to Versailles. Guided tour? On our own via the Metro? Lunch there or bring with?

Day 6: Check out. Metro to Train. train to London. Check in. Not sure of the timing yet, so not sure how much can be done on this day. Right now, options are Trafalgar Square and Picadilly Square.

Day 7: Buckingham Palace (with changing of the guards), Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, London Eye. Too much for one day? Lunch options?

Day 8: St Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge, Tower of London. Lunch options?

Day 9: Kensington Palace, Science Museum. Also had Nat. History Museum, but that might be too much museum for one day. Can it be moved to different day?

Day 10: V&A Museum of Childhood in morning, lunch then Sherlock (Or Nat Hist) Museum in afternoon.

Day 11: check out of hotel, Fly home.

Does any of this makes sense? Do I have too much or too little on given days? Anything glaringly boring for either child (or me, not a huge fan of art museums).

Thanks everyone
