IMo it all depends on what you are interested in doing. If wandering around, etc., is something you like to do then 6 days probably isn't too much.

If everybody loved Paris equally nobody would live anywhere else.

For us, and we have been to Paris many times, 6 days would be a bit long especially if there were other places we were planning to visit as well.

Hi K,

For a first visit, 6 days is at least one day too short.

If you get bored, there are many day trips from Paris that could keep you occupied - Versailles is one of them.

It might help to post an itinerary, as well as your interests. That way people here can comment, and add items that may not be obvious or appear in any guidebooks.

Beyond the sites, there are sporting events, art exhibits, concerts, opera, ballet, festivals of all sorts, the chocolate "event", etc...Day trips to Versailles, Giverny, Auvers sur Oise, Dijon, Loire, Reims (Champagne), Vaux le Vicomte,etc...

And part of the magic of Paris, if it's for you, is just sitting in a cafe doing nothing but watching the world go by and enjoying being there. Simple pleasures...

I've been 9/10 and am planning a trip for next year. I also like to see more of France, so couple of years ago it was Lyon, next trip I'm thinking of adding Strasbourg.
