Hey again everyone. I don't have alot of time in Paris, only 4 days, one of which is a tuesday. Both the Louvre and Chateau Versailles are not open on tuesdays, so I just wondered if most things are closed on Tuesdays, such as the shops down on Champs Elysees? I'm also curious to why they choose tuesdays to be closed?

They close on Tuesdays, because Monday is the traditional day that many businesses are closed. The museums stay open that day so that the people have an opportunity to visit on their day off. Everything in town will be open on Tuesdays, except some of the museums.

They are not closed on the same days - Chateau de Versailles is closed on Mondays.
