Paris - input requested on 5-day itinerary for first-timers

Jump to last reply

So many of you have been a wonderful source of information and insight on this forum, and I would very much appreciate your suggestions to improve this 5-day outline for a first-time visit to Paris in July for my husband and myself.

We love to wander neighborhoods for interesting people-watching, architecture, photo-ops, cafes, etc. We also enjoy art, artifacts and history. We want to spend time strolling at least one open-air market, not yet identified. We are planning to concentrate our Museum Pass on Friday and Saturday, but are open to purchasing a 4-day pass if recommended.

Thank you in advance!

Keep the day flexible depending on how jet-lagged we are
