Turned 40 - gift was Paris!

Jump to last reply

Hi there... I went to paris for 2 days when I was 23. It was basically a disaster. Here's what I saw: the louvre. The Eiffel Tower ( with no money to go upstairs). A carousel in I think was Luxembourg gardens. The arc de triumph.

A pathetic trip.

This time, no 1 star hotels. I'm looking for 5 star all the way, that's not terribly stuffy. We have friends that have recommended everything from fouquets to plaza athenee to the Bristol. But I don't want to go over 1000 a night.

We will only go for 3.5 days when factoring in travel times because were not comfortable leaving our young son for longer.

Want to see the d'orsay, sacre couer, notre dame, Montmartre, shop rue st honore and faubourg (spelling?) see the Latin quarter and stroll the marais. And if time, a side trip to Versailles.

Is that too much? Thanks!
