Suggestions for one afternoon itinerary with romantic dinner in Paris?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will have one afternoon and night in Paris on July 18th on our way home from a trip to Greece. We arrive Paris at 11:55am, and depart at 10:35am the following day. We're staying at the Ritz in Place Vendome. I'm thinking we'll have lunch at the hotel when we arrive, then head out from there. We have spent time in Paris before, but not recently. We're trying to come up with a relaxing itinerary that allows us to see some of the city, but not wear ourselves out with too much sightseeing. We can skip the Louvre and d'Orsay this trip, leaving more time for some other sights that wouldn't require so much time. We do enjoy art, cafe/wine bar culture, architecture, etc. and just wandering around. We'd like to make good use of our time without running all over the city, since we know we just don't have time to do all the must-sees. Would be wise to just pick an area or two to explore? Or to hire a guide for a few hours? Is there a scenic neighborhood with a small museum that wouldn't be quite the time commitment of the big museums in town?

Also, we'd like to end our trip with a romantic dinner (not more than about 200 euros tops). This time of year I thought may be good for outdoor/terrace dining. Is there a cool cocktail lounge or champagne bar to visit after dinner? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
