Two seniors, Two teens and 10 hours in Paris--will my plan work?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are taking our 13YO grandaughter and 14YO grandson to London for a week. DH and I have visited Paris several times and love it, so the kids have talked us into a day trip to Paris. Neither of them have traveled outside the country.

I was able to get a good deal on seats on the Eurostar, arriving Paris at 11:17AM and departing at 21:13PM

I'm very comfortable with getting around in Paris, but I know that my DH will not be able to spend 9+ hours walking. I'm thinking that we could show the kids a lot of the iconic sights(and have some sit down time) by doing the Paris L'Open Bus, which is a hop-on, hop-off.

We will want to be sure we see the following:
Notre Dame(no climbing the dome)
The gardens at the Rodin
A walk past the golden dome of L'Invalides
Eiffel Tower--we probably won't try to go up, but will see it from the ground--DH and DGD are both not comfortable with heights.
Arc de Triomph with a stroll along the Champs Elysee

At some point, we will stop for a nice leisurely lunch, then continue the sightseeing.
We're going on a Tuesday, so the Louvre is closed.

Any input would be helpful--also, I would love for them to see the twinkling lights of Tour Eiffel as the last thing we do before getting back to Gare du Nord--any thoughts on a place to view from and then get transport(metro or cab) back to Gare du Nord?
Thanks,
Barb
