Paris itinerary advice

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be in Paris for 4.5 days at the end of August. We want to see everything possible, but we find it just as important to have idle time to wander, or rest! Please review my itinerary and see how I've done. Thanks so much.

And forgive my misspellings; it's been 30 years since my 2 years of high school French. :)

Arrive Tues. a.m.
Louvre 3 hrs
Jardin de Tuileries 45 min
Place de la Concorde 30 min
L'Orangerie musem 1 hr


Wed.
Eiffel Tower 2 hrs.
Musee d'Orsay 2 hrs.
Ile de Cite 1 hr.
Conciergerie 1.5 hr.

Thurs.
London day trip (I know a lot of you more experienced travelers frown on cramming a one-day trip into another vacation, but I've just got to go.)

Fri.
Notre Dame 3 hrs.
St. Chapelle 3 hrs.
Pont Neuf 1 hr (wandering)

Nighttime cruise of Seine

Sat.
Versailles in the daytime
Giverny trip
Versailles for Serenade and Fountain display

Sun
Montmartre 3 hrs for this area
Sacre Coeur
Place de Vosges 2 hrs.

Saturday seems really odd, I know. I want to see Versailles in the daytime, but I really want to see the evening festivities, too. They don't blend seamlessly into one another, due to hours of operation. Any brighter suggestions?

All of my estimated times are depending upon my purchasing in advance tickets to everything possible - surely that helps.

Thanks to you all!
