Jump to last reply

Hello, I am always cautious posting on here because sometimes you Fodorites can be pretty cut throat :) Although, how you manage to answer the same questions over and over again dealing with some pretty incompetent people is beyond me. So, taking a chance that I may be one of them, I will forge ahead. I know you are wonderful though because you helped me plan my trip to London in 2009.

I am a 42 year old woman traveling alone to Paris for the first time in September 2012. I have researched this trip so much that the more I research I just keep adding places to my spreadsheet that I want to see. So, I am going to post the list and hope you will give me your opinions on some of your favorites and ones you think I should let go for this trip. I will be in Paris for 7.5 days (does not include travel). I know I have to whittle it down. I am staying in an apartment very near Bonne Nouvelle metro stop and then am staying two days at The Five Hotel (it was a really good deal). I'm on a very modest budget and will be getting either the 4-day or 6-day museum pass.

Also, if that were not enough I will be traveling from Paris to Luxembourg to visit some cousins by marriage. I am planning on taking the TGV from Gare l'Est to Luxembourg (the country). I would like to know if it is feasible to see Reims cathedral as a pit stop in the middle of the day and continue on to Luxembourg.

Thank you so very much in advance! I have searched the threads for the last two months and have gotten wonderful suggestions so far regarding transportation, apartments, and of course food!
