We will be in Paris the middle of June for just a little over 48 hours (I know, but, this is a compromise with hubbie who hates cities).
We wanted to go to the Rue Cler market to get picnic supplies as soon as we get in, but not sure how late the merchants are open. Anyone know?
It would also be lovely to attend a concert, but, no details are available on the Paris Jazz Festival (some jazz we like, some we don't). Anyone know the schedule?
Our Sunday (arrival day) is shaping up as follows:
--Arrival 12 noon, transfer to Hotel Muguet in 7th arr.
--Pick up picnic supplies at Rue Cler, and picnic at Champ de Mars Park or Musée Rodin gardens (Tue-Sun 9.30am-5.45pm)?
--The Jazz Century exhibit at Musée du Quai Branly (11am-7pm)--Café open 9am to 6pm (backup if picnic is out)
--Concert? (Paris Jazz Festival 3pm-6pm or organ concert at Notre Dame 16:30-17:15 pm)
--Dinner reservations 20:00 p.m., PASCO
--visit The Gates of Heaven at the Louvre (Wed-Mon 9am-8pm)
--Dinner reservations 7:30 pm, La Régalade
--Rue Cler Market for stuff to take home
--Musée Rodin (Tue-Sun 9.30am-5.45pm)—if didn’t get to it on Sunday
--Lunch reservations 12 noon Restaurant Chez L 'Ami Jean (this is the earliest reservation time, suggested travel time to CDG is 3 1/2 hours so gives us an hour to eat lunch, hopefully enough time? taxi from the restaurant?)
--4:40 flight from CDG
Sunday and Tuesday are pretty packed so wanted a more leisurely day on Monday. Picnic or cafe for lunch, possibly visit to hammam for me. There is so much we haven't see or done in Paris (even though this is the 4th visit for me).
Comments or suggestions?
