Paris in May for only 3.5 days

Jump to last reply

I'm going with a friend to Paris & then Venice in May 2011. We've both always wanted to go, and finally have an opportunity. We'll be meeting at CDG on a Thursday morning, then leaving to go to Venice on Monday afternoon. We'll fly back into CDG for an over night before we leave the next morning to fly back to our respective destinations.

Not sure where we will be staying (I'm only in charge of activities *lol*) but I think the 8th arrond. (street - Rue d'Astorg). I am looking for suggestions of places that other travelers would consider "must see". We don't mind walking, we like photography, and we know we want to see Versailles and the other usual suspects - Notre Dame, Sacred Heart, Arc de Triomphe. I've been reading that some of the gardens are beautiful and I think we'll take a tour on the Seine - based on what I've been reading and seeing.

I've been reviewing travel guides but the volume of sites is overwhelming and I not entirely sure of the geography of the city and what combination of sites is a reasonable itinerary for 3.5 days -- or per day for that matter.

If anyone has suggestions for restaurants they really enjoyed, I'll be happy to take those as well.
