Don,Which hotel are you staying at?
Have you looked into any ballet/opera performances at the Garnier?
If that is not to your liking, or you are unable to get reservations,do stop in and walk around, it is worth just standing there and looking at that staircase!
And Galleries Lafayette is nearby for shopping!
At the end of the evening,when you are ready to go back to the hotel, walk over to the Seine and just gaze across at the other side, the lights on the water, the Eiffel Tower, it is a wonderful sight.Happy Anniversary!

My last response was a genuine attempt to get more info from the original poster so as to provide better suggestions, nothing more, nothing less!.....'Twas hardly a petty little squabble or whatever!

First, I want to thank all of you for some great ideas! My wife and I went to a book store a purchased a few books on Paris, and some French lessons on cassettes. The books, and the information you all have offered, have helped us with some fantastic plans.

We have planned a day trip to Versailles and Giverny, another day trip to the Chateau Country; a Bateaux-Parisiens dinner cruise on the Seine; visits to the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame; a walk to Ille St. Louis for a Berthillon ice cream; an evening concert at Saint Chapelle; a visit to the Louvre and Printemps Department Store.

We will be staying a week Howard, and I'm beginning to wonder if that's enough time. As far as the budget goes, well, there is no cap, but one must be reasonable.

We are still looking through the books and taking more notes. To see the childlike excitement in my wife brightens my day. We are going to have a GREAT TIME!

Again thanks to all of you; Howard, Rex, Alice, Ruth, C, Lisa, Enio, Bob, and everyone else.

Don, thanks for responding to my questions. Here's my response to you comment about whether a week was enough time.
We're planning a two-week trip to Paris in May. When I raised the question on this board about whether we could include 3 or 4 day trips over the 14 days and still have time for Paris, the "Paris experts" all said we can easily do it over the two-week period. The same cannot be said about a one-week trip.
During my research for the trip, I quickly learned one of the joys of going to Paris for two weeks: You don't have to plan each day in detail. Heck, if you don't do it one day, you can do it the next!
Yes, we plan to do a lot of the same things as you--and a lot more, of course--but we don't feel any pressure to schedule each day. And, that feels great!
Don, you and your wife sound as excited about your impending trip, as my wife and I do. Heck, the strongest advice I can give: Stay longer!

Don, this is sooo great~you will have such a good time!
Regarding how much time is enough-Never Enough Time! We go every year for 10 days-2 weeks, and I always want to stay longer! Perhaps after a year or two I would be ready to go home.So one the plane on the way back home,start planning the next trip.
Also before you go, it helps if you go through your lists and put the must see/do's in order so you won't leave feeling that you really missed something important to you.
Happy 25th~
