PARIS - FIRST TIMERS

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are taking our first trip to Europe June/July 2013. We are spending 10 days in Italy and 10 days in France. In France - we plan to spend 5 nights in Provence and 4 nights in Paris. Paris has so many places to visit and sights to see and of course 4 nights is not nearly enough, but it is what we have to work with. I'd like to avoid spending my precious days in queues, and really want to experience the Parisian way of life.

We like the idea of taking one day seeing Paris from a boat trip up the Seinne- it seems a good way of seeing the landmarks - but would love advice from others as to whether this is a good option.

What I really would appreciate is a list of must do's that we can fit in in four days.
Our preference would be to see some of the wonderful architecture, some historical landmarks and go to places that Paisians go to. ie. non touristy cafes, parks, squares etc. Any ideas from seasoned Paris travellers will be so appreciated.
