Planning for 10 Days in Paris (+ side trip?)

Jump to last reply

Hello! My husband and I are returning to Paris this September for 10 nights to celebrate our 10yr wedding anniversary. We honeymooned there so very long ago (2 wks in Paris/Loire Valley) and are excited to finally return! We are in our mid/late 30s, relatively experienced travelers and LOVE to seek out and eat delicious food.

We saw a ton of the major sights last time we were in Paris so this time I'm planning to hit up our favs but hope to really relax, stroll, picnic, eat, drink, shop, etc! I've been researching rentals on Airbnb in the Marais area. I think that's where we want to be. But am open to other suggestions! I'm also a little hesitant to not having access to the amenities/concierge services of a hotel but think we can save $ by going the Airbnb route (plus many of washer/dryers in the unit!).

We want to save the bulk of our vacation budget for food. I'd say our most fond memories of our trips always include memorable meals so would appreciate any must-not-miss recommendations that must be booked now. (Like Tickets in Barcelona, which we were never able to get into!)

Since we have a wonderful 10 days/10 nights at our disposal, I'm thinking of venturing outside of Paris a bit. Options include a day trip to Normandy/D-Day beaches (my husband would enjoy that), a day trip to Versailles (loved biking around the gardens), a side trip to Lyon (great food?!), or maybe popping over the border to either Brussels, London, Amsterdam or Geneva. We are flying in/out of Paris so don't want to go too far since we have to come back but the high speed rails give us lots of options. I know we don't have THAT much time and have to choose really wisely. Would so love any suggestions!

Thank you all so much in advance!
