Paris first-timers

Jump to last reply

We'll be taking our first trip to Paris for 10 days in early May. We land at CDG airport at 8:00am...to the hotel on Ile St Louis by 10 (?)...and that's when our first day adventure begins. We are thinking about spending the remainder of the day as follows:
- walk about the islands, grab a light lunch, then head back to the hotel to organize
- by mid or late afternoon, walk or take the Metro to the Louvre/Marais area, hoping to
enter the museum (avoid the crowds?)
- finally, before we crash from jet lag, we'd like to find a wine bar or bistro in that
general area where we can relax and enjoy some charcuteries, fromage, and wine

Any opinions on our first day tentative plan? And, more specifically, any good suggestions on a wine bar, bistro, etc in that general area? Thanks for any input....
