Paris when it rains

Jump to last reply

We'll be in Paris next week (family of four, two adults, two kids ages 12 and 8). I've gotten some great advice here re: Normandy and have been combing the forums for tips re:Paris with kids. We'll have four full days in Paris, and I've come up with a rough itinerary--would love the experts here to look it over and add their thoughts:

Tueasday night: Bateau Mouche
Wednesday: Luxembourg Gardens, Musee de Cluny, Notre Dame
Thursday: Versailles. Should we plan on a full day there? If not, maybe we can climb the tower or visit a museum afterward.
Friday: Louvre, Tuileries, Montmartre
Saturday: Invalides, Orsay, Tour Eiffel

I know this list is missing a lot of must-see places (Saint-Chappelle! Opera Garnier! etc.) What would you add? When? And is it really going to rain all week? So sad.

Thanks in advance! Will be sure to post a trip report, too.
