Six day trip to Paris in July: Please review!

Jump to last reply

Hello Fodorites!

We are a couple with two teenage kids that live in Midwest/USA, on our first trip to Paris. We plan to stay there for six nights. Can you review the itinerary below for:

a) Does it makes sense or are we traversing from one place to the other in the wrong direction or spending too much time walking etc?
b) Is it too hectic? Shall we remove something or include something?
c) MOST welcome suggestions for budget-conscious but excellent lunch/dinner locations. We are staying at a hotel in Latin Quarter Mouffetard and dinner locations near there are specially welcome.
d) Suggestions for websites that tell us about Paris events (Theater/Concerts etc) are MOST welcome.

THANK you!
--
Day 1;

- Fly-in at 9 am, transatlantic flight! Taxi to hotel (Latin Quarter, Fifth arrondisement). Leave luggage.
- Location for lunch is most welcome.
- Take a water bus to Ille St Louis and Ille de la Concorde to see gothic masterpieces Notre-Dame and Sainte-Chapelle.
- Dinner location near the hotel to be determined.
- Head back to hotel for hopefully a good sleep!

Day 2:
- See impressionists at Musee d’Orsay and Musee Rodin in the pressive Invalides. For a change of scenary, walk out to Rue Cler with its street markets and bistros.
- Any lunch locations?
- Afternoon, scale the Eiffel Tower then come down to earth at the modernist Palais de Chaillot across the river. Walk through elegant passy to the Musee Marmotten-Claude Monet. Beyond it is Bois de Boulogne, replete with lakes and gardens.
- Any dinner suggestion?

Day 3:
- Walk over to Arc de Triomphe, see morning view of paris, walk east along Avenues des Champs-Elysees. Cross the grand expanse of Place de la Concorde and the formal Jardin des Tulleries to historic Palais Royal.
- Lunch suggestion?
- Go to Musee du Louvre.
- Dinner suggestion?

Day 4:
- Walk east across the vibrant Marais district from the Pompidou center with its amazing contemporary art. Pop into Musee Carnavalet for a dose of Parisian history, and a much needed coffee at the calm Places des Vosges. Finish morning in historic, and hugely trendy Place de la Bastille.
- Lunch suggestion?
- In the afternoon, visit city’s most famous cemetery Cimetiere du Pere Lachaise (visit Oscar Wilde’s grave). Follow the Canal St-Martin to the futuristic Parc de la Villette. See the exhibits in the Cite de la Musique to catch a concert if available.
- Dinner suggestion?

Day 5:
-Spend the day out of the city, at the magnificient Versailles, Louis XIV palace. Tour the sumptuous apartments on first floor.
- Lunch suggestion?
- Explore palace’s fabulous gardens, and the small Grand Trianon and Petit Trianon.
- Dinner suggestion?

Day 6:
- Sample intellectual Paris in Café de Flore in St Germain-des-Pres, a long-time haunt of writers and philosophers. Visit the latin quarter, home of sublime church of St. Severin, fine medieval art in the Musee National du Moyen Age, the Pantheon, and the Sorbonne university. Step back in time on old Rue Mouffetard before having lunch on Montparnasse (where exactly?).
- Afternoon, relax in Jardin du Luxembourg, then head north on the right bank and the opulent Opera Garnier. Treat ourselves at Galeries Lafayette, and then climb Montmartre to the ethereal Sacre Coeur to watch sun set.
- Dinner suggestions?
