Hubster and I will be visiting Paris in October for 5 nights.
I've said our itinerary is for 3 full days not 4 because one full day will be spent at Disneyland :)
We have booked accommodation at Hotel Paris France on Rue de Turbigo in the 4th. The aim of our trip-planning research is to come up with an itinerary that includes our must-sees whilst allowing us some free-time to just experience the place we're visiting. We also try to get the best value for money as opposed to the cheapest. We're not big foodies and we don't plan on doing much if any shopping. We're not really art lovers either.
Aside from the must-sees that I've included in my draft itinerary, we would also like to visit some gardens, maybe check out Forum des Halles, and visit the Arc de Triomphe, the Pantheon and Champs-Elysees if we can easily fit it into our schedule without back-tracking.
I would really appreciate your advice on the following - maybe suggest why I should or shouldn't take particular tours, or if there's a more logical order to do it in. Also, please don't advise me against Disney, because visiting every Disney park in the world is #1 on my bucket list!
Sunday: arrive at hotel around 16:00 (exhausted from very long flight from Australia)
~ do a Seine River cruise (possibly with Vedettes du Pont Neuf because it departs from Ile de la Cite which I think is closer to where we'll be)
~ visit Notre Dame (possibly with the www.paris-walks.com 10.30am tour)
~ climb the Note Dame Towers
~4 hour Segway Tour 2pm
~Visit Montmartre. The annual grape festival is on at this time and we would like to spend half a day exploring and enjoying this area. We are considering the 10.30am tour with www.paris-walks.com
~have nothing planned for the afternoon
~ evening Eiffel Tower visit. We want to go right to the top!
~Louvre (2-3 hours). Am considering a skip-the-line tour that takes visitors to just the "main" pieces.
~wander the Marais
~fly out early to Naples for 3 weeks in Italy
Thanks in advance
