This list holds my itinerary for our trip to Paris, which lasted about 3,5 days. We didn't want to use the metro a lot, because we like to see as much of the city as possible.
You this itinerary can help you, as it helped us see the things we wanted to see in a short period of time.
We arrived at this station around 12.30 in the afternoon. We bought a carnet of 10 metro tickets at the billeterie and found our way to our RER.
Very nice hotel! Great location, in the center, only 10 minute-walk away from the Notre Dame. Opposite the Jardin des Plantes (botanical Gardens)
Nice cathedral, next to the Seine, in the center of Paris
Crypte that holds the some excavations of what used to be the street to the Notre Dame
Conciergerie is a former palace and prison.
Beautiful church with very large windows. Very intimate atmosphere.
Small restaurant at Rue Gregoire de Tours 16. Budget prices and warm ambience.
We took the metro to Tour Montparnasse. Entrance is 10 euros. Very nice view! Make sure to arrive around twilight, so you can see both day and night.
You can stand inside, or outsight on the top of the building and overlook Paris.
Make sure to be here early, to avoid the security line! We had a museum pass, so we could also skip the line for a ticket. Leave your bag at the Bagagerie and enjoy the museum. We headed up to the Venus of Milo and Mona Lisa first, to avoid crowds. Then we discovered some other wings. We didn't see the entire museum, because it's much too big.
We also had lunch in the museum. the take away is affordable. I had a nice chicken baguette for 5 euros.
Nice garden. Walk through it on your way to the L'Orangerie.
You can skip the line here, which is usually long, if you have a museum pass. In this museum you find the nympheas of Monet! It's a small but intimate museum.
We wanted to do the walk described in the National Geographic Travel Guide, but the rain stopped us... we did see the Rue des Rosiers and had a falafel at L'As du Falafel (34 Rue des Rosiers).
Very nice atmosphere in this jewish neighbourhood
We went to have dinner at Chez Robbert, in a side street of Rue Mouffetard in Quartier Latin. Rue Mouffetard, also had some nice restaurants and shops. During daytime there's a market, but we didn't get to see it.
Nice botanical gardens. There's also a zoo (Menagerie) and a museum of history of nature and gallery of evolution.
Huge monument with many tombs of well known people, like Voltaire, Hugo and Curie.
Pick up a sandwich at Pomme de Pain when you're walking from the Pantheon to the Jardin du Luxembourg and enjoy eating it in the gardens!
The church that got famous because of the Da Vinci Code.
Take the Metro to the Champs Elysees. Walk all the way up to the Arc and enjoy watching all the expensive shops and dressed up people.
From the top of this Arc you have a great view over Paris! Try taking the elevator, which is very quick and there's usually no people waiting.
Take the metro to Trocadero and enjoy the views of the Eiffel Tower. It's so huge! Perfect picture spot!
Wow, it's great to see it when you're standing under it!
We didn't go up, because the lines were long and we had already enjoyed our view at the Arc very much.
Lovely restaurant!! Great food and service! Nearby the Eiffel Tower!
Such huge lines here!! So glad we had a museum pass, which allows you to go in through another entrance. We only had to wait in the security line for I think 15 minutes. The others must have been waiting for at least two hours to get in, and then they still had to buy their tickets.
The museum is very nice and has some very famous paintings of Van Gogh.
We walked the streets of Montmartre, from Place the Clichy (metro). We first walked to Moulin rouge, which was nothing special. Then we walked over the cemetery which was impressive, and up the hill to Place du Tertre, through Rue Abesses.
Beautiful church! Nice views.
And back to the station... we walked from the Montmartre, which was not far!
