Trip Report Paris in 8 days ALONE

Jump to last reply

I will start with thanking all the fodorites who helped me plan my awesome trip to Paris. I will post the report in parts because I have so much to tell.
I will start with my itinerary. I got me the "Fodor's 25 Best Experiences Paris" book and out of the 25 places I visited 19 in a period of 8 days. I also WALKED everywhere, the only time I took the train was to go to Versailles Palace, but other than that I just walked, and walked and walked which I love!
I live in Connecticut, so I had a friend drop me off at my work in the morning of Friday April 12th, in the afternoon I took a taxi to the train station and took the train to Grand Central Station en NYC $11 a ticket. From Grand Central I took a shuttle that cost me just $10. Arrived at JFK and my plane (Air Lingus) departed at 9:15 pm, connected flights in Ireland and I arrived in Paris at 1:30pm on Saturday April 13th. My shuttle never showed up and I ended up paying a taxi that cost me 50Euros.
Saturday: I got to the Studio and settled, talked a bit with the manager and took off to walk around Saint Germain Des-Pres (where the studio apartment is located). Did grocery shopping then returned to apartment, did a quick walk up to Luxembourg and around it. Came back to eat dinner at (what is now my favorite spot) "Les Editeurs", around the corner from my apartment and where I ate most of my dinners.
Sunday I visited the Louvre, Saint Chapelle, Montnaparse Tower, Pantheon, walked throughout the Luxembourg gardens. Back and forth.
Monday I visited Notre Dame and Centre Geaorge Pompidou
Tuesday I visited D'Orsay Museum, Les Invalides, Eiffel Tower, "crossed over" Trocadero
Wednesday I visited the Arc of Triumph, Place de la Concorde, Opera Palace.
Thursday I visited National Du Moyen Age Museum (Cluny), Carnavalet Museum, Place des Vosges.
Friday I visited Versailles Palace, Branly Museum and had dinner at the Les Ombres overlooking the Eiffel Tower (another suggestion I found here before I left, breathtaking view from the restaurant which is located on top of the museum)
Saturday I visited Galerie Vivienne, Passages Couverts and did the Seine Boat trip at night.
Sunday I walked around Saint Germain des-pres to take one more look at Paris in the quite early morning, the manager of my studio picked me up and took me to the airport at 9am. I arrived in NYC at 6pm
More to come, next about safety, dress and manners, planning and booking!
Merci :-)
