would I regret skipping Paris....

Jump to last reply

I am going to Europe in September and my first thought was duh... London, Paris, Rome.

My current plan is:
3 days - London
2 days - Cotswolds
2 days - Kent
3 days - Paris
3 days - Rome
2 days - Amalfi
2 days - Capri

But now I am wondering about Paris. I am not a foodie, in fact, I have very simple tastes in food and would probably just eat croissants and baguettes. I am not a museum person really, in terms of paintings although I do like history but more a tangible variety such as architecture, sculptures and gardens. I will be traveling solo.

So here are the questions:
Does Paris have a special something that is not missing from London or Rome?
Will my lukewarm attitude towards it now change totally once I'm there ?
Would I be better served to add a day to Rome and two days to England ?
Would I regret not walking along the Seine at night ?
I know this last question will sound dumb, but is there more to Paris than museums and fine dining ?

Thank you for not thinking me crazy. I just don't want to go somewhere just so I can say, yep, been there.
