My husband and I will be in Paris for almost 3 days during an upcoming trip to Europe. We'll be staying in the Latin Quarter, within walking distance of Notre Dame, and I wondered how the following itinerary looks (I know it's jam-packed, but is it achievable?):
Thursday 7 July (arrive 13h00) - Notre Dame, Saint-Chapelle, Pont Neuf , Ile St Louis (Berthillon ice-cream stop), Hotel des Invalides/ Napoleon’s tomb, Basilique du Sacre-Coeur, Centre Pompidou modern art museum (open til 11pm Thurs)
Day 2: Friday 8 July - Versailles (1/2 day)
Afternoon: Marais district: Place des Vosges for coffee, Rue des Rosiers for shopping, Jardin du Luxembourg
Day 3: Saturday 9 July - Place de la Concorde, Champs-Elysees, Arc de Triomphe, sunset cruise of Seine to E.Tower, Eiffel Tower
Leave Sunday 10 July
Is there anything we should switch around, or that makes more sense to pair together?
Also - what is the best and most reasonable way to get around in Paris? Is it possible and safe to travel home late at night (e.g. after visiting the Centre Pompidou) on the metro?
Any recommendations for decor/ design shops (not super expensive) in the Latin Quarter or near to any of the attractions we're visiting would be great!
