What do do on our first jet-lagged afternoon in Paris?

Jump to last reply

Thanks for all the advice so far in my post yesterday about restaurants for our first evening in Paris! On a related note, I'm hoping for some suggestions for first day activities...

We are set to land at CDG at 9:30 in the morning, and even with getting to our hostel and settling in, maybe getting some snacks etc. at the Franprix down the street, we'll probably still have most of the afternoon at our disposal.

Our hostel is, as I mentioned in yesterday's post, in the 9th arrondissement, in the Opéra Area. The address is 39 Rue Rodier, if that helps.

We are happy to do a lot of walking though, so no need to limit activities to that general area. And while we probably don't want to do anything that is too mentally taxing, something that would keep us awake until it is reasonable to go to bed would be ideal.

If it makes a difference, this will be my second visit to Paris, and the friends I will be with have never been. So we're pretty green when it comes to Paris! If you were us, how would you spend your time on that first afternoon?
