How long to walk from Arc de Triumph to the Louvre? AND How far is place de la Bastille from Gare de Lyon?

Jump to last reply

OK, I'm working on my Paris itinerary and I have a couple of questions:

If we were planning on taking a leisurely stroll from the Arc de Triomphe to the Louvre (going through the Tuileries on the way), about how long would it take, roughly? I mean, we're neither power walkers nor old ladies with canes. We won't be needing to stop and inspect every store along the way, but neither will we be rushing blindly along. We're a 30 year old daughter and her 51 year old mom who are in decent shape. Anyone care to guess on a ballpark figure?

Also, how far is place de la Bastille from Gare de Lyon? Is it within reasonable walking distance?

Thanks in advance,
Jennie
