Our Paris plans

Jump to last reply

Just thought I would post our tentative plans for Paris this early November. We are traveling through Alsace, Normandie and The Loire for 2 weeks prior and the coming to Paris for 10 nights. Thought I would get your opinions. We know the weather will be cooler but we are Canadian so no problem there. I know I put Eiffel tower in more than once....We are not sure yet what day it will be but it will be once.

Day 1- Arrive in Paris and check into our apartment in the 7th, get some groceries and wander the neighbourhood maybe see the Eiffel lit up at night.

Day 2 - Day one of our Hop on Hop off tour of Paris. with planned stops at Trocadéro and Place de la Bastille...We plan on stopping anywhere we please that is not scheduled for later.... .Maybe go up the Eiffel at night or a Seine Cruise

Day 2 of the Hop on/off Do the loops that we did not do yesterday. Stops where we please and finish the day in the St Germain area by mid-afternoon.....See St Sulpice Church and Luxembourg gardens. Explore and eat dinner in the St Germain area.

Day 3 to 9 are not in any order....will be dictated by weather and mood.

Day 3 Head to Père Lachaise to stroll around and see some famous dead people. I have wanted to visit here since I was a teen (many moons ago). In the afternoon and evening head to Montmartre and visit Sacré Coeur and the area around. Have dinner in this area as well.....

Day 4 (day one of 6 day museum pass.....for convenience and to skip lines) Musee D'Orsay in the morning. By late afternoon or early evening stroll along Les Champs Elysées and to top things off. go to the top of l'arche de Triomphe.

Day 5 Notre Dame, Ile Saint Louis, Sainte Chapelle and area. Ice Cream at Berthillon.....explore near the seine. Maybe a Seine Cruise that evening? Maybe climb the Eiffel....?

Day 6 Leave early and head to Versailles visit as much as we feel comfortable doing and see some of the village as well. (eat there? come back to Paris for Dinner? How late does the RER operate? Tour Monparnasse that evening?)

Day 7 Early Morning at the Louvre....I can't wait for this one.....See all of our must sees but realize that we won't see even a 1/10 of it all.....Stroll the Jardins Tuilleries. and Place de la Concorde.

Day 8 (Hubby's favorite plan so far) Ecole Militaire, Les Invalides, See Napoleon's tomb....See the Musée Rodin (I am so looking forward to that) and stay in the area. Maybe Eiffel tower to the top tonight??

Day 9 If we feel up to it the Catacombs in the morning. We may not do it at all. Les Halles, Le Centre Georges Pompidou in the afternoon. Hang out in the Marais for our last night. Eat one last good meal and pick up any last minute souvenirs we might need.

Day 10, fly home to Canada.....Sniff Sniff.....


What do you all think.??? I want to have lots of time to discover thing, see unexpected things etc....Did I pack too much in any of these days? In Paris it will be me and my husband who are in our mid-40's and my 70 year old mom who keeps up with us just fine. (Sometimes I think we are keeping up with her...LOL) We will have a navigo Decouverte card for transportation after our hop on/ hope off tour. Taking a taxi back to CDG I think so far.

Honest opinions welcomed. Oh and BTW, Mom picked the apartment in the 7th.....So that is that.....LOL

I can't wait.
