Paris Itinerary - transportation questions

Jump to last reply

First-timers in Paris; any help with transportation questions would be much appreciated!

Day 1 (Sunday) Eurostar from London to Paris - staying at Hotel Le Relais Montmartre. Would it be best to take a taxi from Gard du Nord or take the metro from Gard du Nord to Blanche metro station (blue/#2)? Sacre Coeur/ 9pm Moulin Rouge

Day 2 (Monday) What is best way to get from Montmartre to Hotel Splendid Tour Eiffel. Again, taxi or metro? Drop luggage off at hotel (take metro from La Motte-Picquet-Grenelle to Charles de Gaulle metro). Arc de Triomphe, Champs Elysees to Pont Alexandre III bridge. Cross bridge to Esplanade des Invalides and back to hotel on Avenue de Tourville (5pm Tour meeting). Dinner in Rue Cler area (I read that it is "dead" on Mondays but hopefully something will be open) and then walk to Eiffel Tower/Trocadero. Take Bateux Parisienne river cruise.

Day 3 (Tuesday) Take Bus #69 by Eiffel Tower; get off at Hotel de Ville stop. Tour around Ile de la Cite and Ile St. Louis (Notre Dame, etc.). Then continue to Jardin du Luxembourg ; eat in St. Sulpice area. Take Mabillon metro back to area of our hotel.

Does anyone have any experience with Bus #69? Should we take all the way down to the cemetery? Just thought it would be nice to be above ground to see some sights.

Any comments/suggestions much appreciated! Thank you!!!
