Paris in 3 days and a half

Jump to last reply

I am trying to set up a visit plan in Paris for just a few days . How is this, is it too much each day? or not enough? or would you go a different route?

Wednesday August 15 = Day 1 After checking to the hotel Blvd de Grenelle [ Airport arrival from west of france scheduled at 12:30 p.m. so probably not before 3:30 p.m. ready to go out visit]
Head first to the Eiffel Tower. Trocadéro scene and a twilight ride up the Eiffel Tower.
Back down, atmosphere of the Champ-de-Mars before heading across Pont de l'Alma towards the Arc de Triomphe and up to the top. Walk from the Arc de Triomphe down the grand avenue des Champs-Elysées across Place de la Concorde and to Tuileries Garden and perhaps to the outside of the Louvre .
Cross the pedestrian bridge from the Tuileries Garden, then tour the Orsay Museum.
Walk to Champs de Mars/Tour Eiffel through the underground tunnel. [If anyone could tell me where it is ? I was told it is a good way! ] and then to the hotel again.

Thursday August 16 = Day 2: The Louvre or Musée d'Orsay if we have not done it on day 1 - the Louvre [in& out ? or just out?] then Ste Chapelle
wander along the ritzy rue St-Honoré to find the French president's home, the Palais de l'Élysée and the Neoclassical Église de la Madeleine.
From here, the destination is Notre Dame Cathedral , will try to reach in time for the free tour at 2pm Cross the delightful Pont Neuf to the Ile de la Cité , but we may like to detour to Montparnasse for a bite to eat first.[Chez Bebert!]
Pantheon - Conciergerie -

Friday August 17 = Day 3: Invalides , Monmartre and Basilique Sacre Coeur

May be if time to rest a little at the hotel and freshen up….for our next stop: Diner on Bateaux Mouches Paris Boat Tour

Saturday August 18 = Day 4 Walk through the Marais (the medieval section of town) and head to another hotel by the airport .

Do you know of any site where we can find routes recommendations walking Paris? without paying a guide!

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR TIPS AND ADVISES.
