Paris trip: first draft:. requesting your comments

Jump to last reply

We are in the early stages of Paris-planning and, as usual, request your input. We, RNCheryl and DH are near retirees, good health. Third traveler is a lifelong friend who is also nearing retirement. We will meet in NYC and travel together. The trip is 9/18-9/29. We are staying in Paris Perfect Muscadet on Rue du Cygne in the first .

We arrive Thursday 9/19. We have engaged Victor Cabs to take us from the airport to the apartment. The plan is to walk the neighborhood, buy some supplies and take a short nap. (This has proven to be helpful to our touring style). The other plan for this day is to take a Vedette du Pont Neuf cruise near sunset to see Paris alight.

Friday 9/20: Tour Versailles
The plan is to tour the gardens and Marie's farm, have lunch, and then see the main building when (hopefully) the crowds have lessened.

Sat 9/21.
Tour Montmarte/Sacre Couer. Maybe do some shopping. Dinner this evening is a birthday celebration, and I like the looks of Cristal in the Baccarat museum. Does anyone have an alternative? The E105 for the tasting menu is about at the top of our price point. It just looks so romantic.

Sun 9/22: Giverny
Take an early train to be there before the hoards. Walk back to Vernon, have lunch, explore the village.

Mon 9/23: See Saint Chappelle in the morning. Context Tour of the Louvre at 2PM. (We used Context at the Vatican and felt we benefited from the experience more than doing it on our own).

Tue 9/24: Paris Walks Marais tour in the morning. Visit Shakespeare and Company, have dinner at Le Petit Chatelet. We have tickets for a concert in Notre Dame at 8PM.

Wed 9/25: See the Eiffel Tower. I don't plan to go up, but I may be outvoted on that. Stroll the gardens. Plan the free Notre Dame tour at 2 or 2:30. Climb up to see the gargoyles?

Thursday 9/26: Normandy beaches. I am almost sure we will go with Overlord Tours

Friday 9/27: Musee d Orsay, La Orangiere, Tullieres. Evening performance of
http://www.oliviergiraud.com/UK/ How to become a Parisian in one hour. Saw it recommended here and it looks entertaining.

Saturday 9/28: No plans yet for today. What have I forgotten?

We leave for home on Sunday.

Would love to have your recommendations on restaurants in our apartment neighborhood and in the vicinity of our sightseeing. We were planning to get the Museum pass as well.
