Paris itinerary in May

Jump to last reply

Hi, I am trying to figure out how to plan our Paris itinerary. This is what I have so far:

Arrive Wed eve (May 9) from Nice into Orly at 6.30pm. Check in at BW Louvre, find a place for dinner. Walk around.

Thurs Would like to take the free tour at the Notre Dame at 2pm. (We usually start our day between 10-10.30, not early risers but we can stay up late!)
Can walk through le Jardin des Tuilleries (maybe picnic lunch) and make our way to Notre Dame. Ice cream at Berthillon after! What else can we fit in that day? We could do a show that evening- maybe La Nouvelle Eve? at 10pm.

Fri - Was thinking of going to the fashion show at the Galleries Lafayette on Friday afternoons, I believe that is at 4pm.. Planning to visit the Sacre Coeur before that since they are close by. The Louvre that evening since it is open late.

Sat - Eiffel Tower- will it be far more crowded being a Sat? Place Invalides. Seine river cruise that evening.

Sun - Day trip to Versailles. What time is good to leave? My son has a 2pm flight to Chicage that day so he will not be joining us but we will be leaving the hotel together at around 10.30 am. Does that give us enough time? Which type of ticket is recommended?

Mon - Place des Vogues, Jardin du Luxembourg, some shopping to accommodate DD. What areas are recommended for not too expensive shopping?
Want to make sure we stop at L'As du Falafel at some point during the trip for their falafel, probably for lunch, not sure which would be the best day to work that in?
To which day should we add Opera Garnier?

The only other Museum that I did want to visit was the Musee D'Orsay but will have to see if we can do that , if at all. Maybe on Monday since DS is the one not much interested in museums.
Still have to tentatively pick some restaurants, especially for dinner but will do that once I have an itinerary.

Would welcome any suggestions/critiques. I believe I have kept the days pretty light so we have time to wander the streets, stop at cafes etc but I could be wrong since I do not know how much time we will spend at each place. Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks a million!
