The ‘must-see’ Paris itinerary

March 15th, 2009 by paris

The first stop of your Paris itinerary is the Eiffel Tower approached from the Champ de Mars.

Then take the Batobus from the Place de Alma (boat service for the Seine, 10.20 euros for a whole days use). Go up and down the Seine and admire the views. Operates until 7pm in winter, and 9pm in summer.

Follow with the Arc de Triomphe, from the top there is a fantastic view of all major buildings.

Walk down the Champs Elysees and rest at the Jardin des Tuileries. Follow with a visit to the Louvre (closed Tuesdays), and enjoy the biggest art gallery in the world.

Second day of Paris itinerary

Walk along the rue St-Honore, past the Palais de l’Elysee, to the Opera Garnier and admire the 19th century grand boulevards of Paris designed by Haussman.

Montmartre should be the next stop on your Paris itinerary, Metro to the Abbesses station and enjoy the Art Nouveau exit. Walk up the winding hill to the Sacre Coeur and see Paris spread below you.

Exhausted? Sit down and have a leisurely lunch while preparing for the afternoon of your second day’s Paris itinerary.

Notre Dame cannot be missed, take the time to explore the side altars and admire the stained glass windows.

Finally a visit to the Pantheon, then a walk through the Latin quarter ending with dinner in a bistro.

More than two days?

The third day’s Paris itinerary would have to be a visit to Versailles.
