Planning Out What to Do for 5 Days in Paris... Advice?

Jump to last reply

My sister and I (both in our early 40s) will be in Paris for 5 days, starting June 25. I was in Paris 20 years ago, but my sister has never been. I'm trying to roughly plan out our days in the city... knowing that every time I do this, things always change (due to weather, spontaneous ideas, etc.) but I always feel better going with some sort of plan! Here's what I have so far... can anyone let me know if any days have too much or too little? I usually jam-pack my days when traveling, but for Paris, we definitely want to be a little looser since we have plenty of time in the city... time to eat, drink, hang in cafes ;)

Day 1 (Saturday) -- we will be arriving from the U.S. East Coast this morning, so I didn't want a super crazy day... more relaxed. We're staying in the Latin Quarter. I figure we'll take a taxi to the hotel, have them hold our bags, and explore the Latin Quarter, St. Germain de Pres, shops, see the Pantheon. (Maybe Luxembourg gardens?)

Day 2 (Sunday) -- Notre Dame, Saint Chappelle, MAYBE a little bit of the Louvre (was here many years ago and know how overwhelming it can be... might even skip it altogether, or just do a little bit... suggestions?) Then quick walk through Tuilleries, quick visit of Place de la Concorde, Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower. (Day is probably the busiest.)

Day 3 (Monday) -- Ile de St. Louis, Pompidou Center, explore Marais. (Add something to this day? Montparnasse area?)

Day 4 (Tuesday) -- Museum d'Orsay, Napoleon's Tomb, cruise on the Seine (advice on doing this???), Montmartre area and Sacre Coeur.

Day 5 (Wednesday) -- Pere Lachaise, then I was thinking of renting bicycles... has anyone used the Velib system? I was also gonna keep this day more open in case we ran out of time on any of the other days.

Maybe I'm cramming more into these days than I think! If anyone has suggestions, please let me know. I don't think we're interested in visiting Versailles, which is why I omitted doing this. But I'm open to hearing more about that. Thanks!
Carol
