Planning my days in Paris

Jump to last reply

Hello -- I've been drafting and re-drafting an itinerary for my 5-night stay in Paris in September. I play the piano and specifically admire Chopin (and recently read Chopin in Paris) so some of my planning revolves around Chopin landmarks. Also, I'm planning a morning trip to Auvers, to visit Van Gogh spots. Here are the plans so far:

I'm also interested in getting cafe/ bistro or restaurant recommendations. I will be traveling solo in Paris.

Wednesday morning: Take the RER (and regional train) to Auvers-sur-Oise to visit Van Gogh places.

If time, when I return to Paris, stop at Orsay to visit the Van Gogh paintings.

Thursday: Musee Marmottan, Rue Cler, Rodin, Polish Library (located on Ille St. Louis -- Chopin exhibition only open on Thursday afternoons).

Friday: morning: Hemingway Walk, afternoon: Montmartre Walk (with Paris Walks)

Saturday: Square d'Orleans (where Chopin and Sand lived -- I've heard the doors to the square are only open on Saturdays), Pere Lachase for Chopin's tomb (and, if time, l'Orangerie).

Sunday morning: St. Sulpice to hear the pipe organ.

Sunday afternoon -- Depart for my next hotel in Chartre.

I hope to visit Place Vendome (just the outside - Chopin death place) and Madeleine church (funeral place) at some point. I may have to drop Marmatton in favor of seeing The Polish Library Chopin room.
