Visit to Paris (2 nights)

Jump to last reply

During an extended stay in England I am taking my 2 children, ages 9 and 14 to Paris. I have reserved a triple room in the 6th arrondissement for 2 nights. I know this is not enough time for a proper visit to Paris, but I am hoping this will be a pleasant taste of the city. I have no particular plans for meals, but will stop wherever we see that looks appealing. Obviously, we can’t see everything and I don’t want to ruin our stay by trying. I hope my itinerary is not too ambitious for our short time. I would appreciate feedback or recommendations for changes. Thank you in advance!

Wednesday-- Arrive midmorning, explore (suggestions) until we can check into hotel at 14:00 Afterward, head to The Louvre (open until 10pm on Wednesdays, also not trying to see the whole museum so we shouldn’t have to rush)

Thursday--
Arrive early at Notre Dame
Catacombs I have mixed feelings about the tour for my 9 year old. I can’t decide if he would love it or hate it, so this is only a maybe.
Visit to Musee Carnavalet
Eiffel Tower at twilight (go up only if line isn’t too long)

Friday--
final shopping/exploring
Check out of hotel at noon
Musee d’Orsay, walk through Jardin des Tuileries
Musee de l’Orangerie
(Should I remove one of these museums from the itinerary for a more leisurely visit, and if so which would you recommend keeping?)

Thank you!
