Paris 8day itinerary help please February 2014

Jump to last reply

So Fodorites its time to plan some days in Paris
We will have returned from our little road trip to bayeux for four days andOH will be on his way to his next destination without us

Daughter (20) and I have 8 days to explore Paris. I've been before but it was on an organised trip so I've never caught public transport and have no feel for the lie of the land
I know that Paris is made up of districts

We are staying at hotel Eiffel turenne on ave tourville and plan to buy as much fresh food as possible from the nearby market. I guess we will get some sort of train travel card some kin of the oyster in London or is there a better option like an entry discount card/ train travel option?
So far we want to visit:
Eiffel Tower ... Which day is better,,,we have from Friday 14 February til friday21
I guess we avoid valentines day but it might be fun to see a few proposals no lol?

Eurodisney,,, daughterand I won't go on all of the rides but she wants to stay til the lights come up.

The louvre
Notre dame
Latin quarter
Seine river cruise
Hop on/off bus to orientate ourselves and listen to the commentary
Versailles and Monets garden

We love history and wildlife.... Don't want to spend every day in museums and galleriesthough ... We would've done that in the UK by then
But we'd be interested in anything mainstream,,, we have hardly any French history under our belts compared with our foray into British side of things,,,any must sees for beginners history wise?

Ido want to take my daughter to Geneva for a day,,,we have decided to stay put in france rather than go to Switzerland after our francetour was cancelled
But Switzerland is one of my favourite countries and id love to show her at least a glimpse of it,, any ideas how to make the most of such a day trip?

Any other suggestions are welcome,,, I started a daytripsfrom Paris thread sometime ago but dont know how much we can fit in 8 days
It is winter after all :(
Thanks for your thoughts !
