How many days will you be there?
What are your interests?--museums, dining, history,etc?
Have you clicked on the top of this page at Destinations? It will give you basic Fodors information on the important sights in Paris--maybe you can say what your own must-sees are, and then others can add to that.

thanks gramercy,
We are there for 5 days from 27th Dec. My preferences are:
Eiffel Tower, (also to see fire works on New year's eve)
Notre'dam
Invalides
Seine river boat ride
Louvre
Arc de Triomphe
and some fashion show.
And if we get some time, a trip to versailles.

The must sees sound fine. They will all be open. The weather can run from OK to freezing cold. Be sure to pack accordingly. How about Morrison's grave? Versailes is really a half day trip so maybe an eiffel tower trip and versailles. Also how about a half day trip to Fontainbleu?

With only five days you won't be able to see more than the major sights--which is all you for happiness, especially if this is a first visit.

When you visit Notre-Dame, be sure to walk around the Ile de la Cité and see the Sainte-Chappelle, which has exquisite stained glass. Best to go at the time of day when the sun is on the windows--and note that you want to go up to the first (U.S. second) floor, not just stay on the ground floor.

Also, don't miss the Orsay museum, with its magnificent collection of Impressionist paintings and Art Déco stained glass and furnishings.
