Paris - one day itinerary

Jump to last reply

A few questions. We are headed to Disney with the kids Thursday (24 Apr) through Sunday and booked a flat in Gagny for Sunday night (it was cheap and walking distance to metro) to spend one day in Paris. My original plan was to spend Sunday in Paris, but realizing quite a few things are closed on Sunday in Paris I have re-thought that and now would like to spend Saturday in Paris and Sunday as our last day at Disney. Does that seem like a better idea?

We have been to Paris once before. We've seen the Eiffel tower, Notre Dame, Arc de Triumph, Champs Elysees... We will be back in Paris again, so we don't need to stress about "seeing it all" - just want to enjoy a nice day in Paris and great food...

List of things we potentially would like to see:

Seine cruise
Foxity bus tour (maybe...)
Les Halles for kitchenware shopping
Sacre Couer
Luxembourg Gardens
one or more marche --
Marche les Enfants
Marche St Pierre (looking for material for curtains at the moment, so this might be good...)
Marche aux Puces St-Ouen

I could lose the Foxity tour and no ones feelings would be hurt, but it would be nice to sit and enjoy the sites as well. I am wondering if Luxembourg Gardens are better saved for another trip. I don't want to spend hours crisscrossing all over the city.

So - if we park at Marne La Vallee on Saturday morning and head in should we start at Sacre Couer, then St-Ouen/Clingancourt, then Les Halles, then boat tour from Notre-Dame or Louvre?

Food questions:

Would like to have one moderately priced meal (€100 - €200) but was considering lunch as the main meal to save money (more to spend on kitchenware or scarves :) ). I was also interested in letting the kids sample street foods (crepes, hot dogs, falafels + Berthillon ice cream) but wasn't sure if those would still be around in the evening if we ate lunch at a restaurant.

I read recommendations for Bistro Paul-Bert (mostly good) but I am not sure it is conveniently located. Steak & frites is usually a good choice for my husband since he can't have dairy or wheat :( Any other restaurants that sound great?

It also seems likely that we will have to deal with rain on either Saturday or Sunday.

Ah, lastly- I would love to visit La Tuile a Loup on rue Daubenton (5th) to see some pottery if we can manage that...
