Paris itinerary advice

Jump to last reply

My wife and I have drafted an itinerary for our 7 days in Paris this July and would appreciate any comments or advice on improvement. We want to maximize our Paris experience but do not want to overextend or rush ourselves. We are both in our 50's and while we can handle moderate walking, we would like to avoid excess and try to spread out the effort over the week. Times marked open could end up being spillover time from the earlier activity or could be used to fill in something else or to allow for rain.
