Paris - Finalized version of our four day itinerary. Any thoughts?

Hello everyone!

Partner and I are going to Paris for my birthday. We won't be suffering from any jet lag as we are flying off from UK.
You've all helped us plenty while creating our itinerary and I wanted to post the finalized version as we are leaving in 10 days. Suggestions are much appreciated.




DAY ONE -


•Arrive at CDG - take the RER B (Direction : Orsay-Ville) from CDG and it will take you to Denfert Rochereau. Walk from Denfert Rochereu to the apartment. Relax and freshen up then head to go Marché Auguste-Blanqui.


•Prepare light lunch and head to The Luxembourg Gardens for picnic


•Explore Saint-Sulpice and stop by Pierre Herme for macaroons. Stop by Café de Flore on our way to Musee d'Orsay. (Just follow Bld. Saint-Germen)


•Musee d’Orsay


•Walk along the river bank until reaching Pont des Arts. Put our lock there. Pass Pont Neuf and head to Place Saint Michele. Walk down the boulevard and make it to the Pantheon while exploring Latin Quarter.


•Head back to the apartment from the Pantheon




DAY TWO -


•Take the metro to Louvre Museum explore it and then start our walk from - Tuileries Garden, Concorde Square, Alexandre III Bridge, Eiffel Tower, Trocadéro and Triumphal Arch


•Rest of the day is up to my partner's planning as it's my birthday.

•Back to the apartment for some nap time




Late afternoon/evening: Montmartre


•Take metro line 4, "direction Porte Cignancourt". Walk towards the dome, climb the stairs.


•Visit Sacre Coueur (open until 10:30 p.m.) at sunset. Possible climb on the domes (open until 7 p.m.).


•Head to Place des Tertres for a real feel of the neighborhood




DAY FOUR:


Morning: Versailles


Either walk to RER C St Michel Notre Dame, or take RER B Train towards Gare du Nord. Take the RER C direction: “Versailles - Rive Gauche“.

Thanks! :)
