Bonjour! My husband and I will be visiting Paris Friday November 9th to Wednesday November 14th in celebration of my 40th birthday.. Please review my draft itinerary and help me determine if I am missing anything grand or if it appears too hectic. It will be my husband’s first visit and my first in 30 years and as an adult.
We love wine, cheese, chocolate, people watching and sightseeing. We are ok being tourists but not into chitch. I’m obsessed with discovering Parisian Macaroons. We are both fit and prefer to walk when it’s logical. We are early risers, not late night partiers.
We will be traveling from Boston, MA USA Thursday night through Ireland, onto Paris on Friday so day one should be light and an earlier to bed evening. I plan to book us at the Hotel Le Walt in the 7th on 37 avenue de la Motte. Thank you for your advice and suggestions!
Friday: Stroll Luxemburg gardens, Musee Rodin, Pantheon, early dinner in St Germain, casual Bistro
Sat & Sun interchangeable best weather day for Versailles
Saturday: Louvre & L’Oranegie (I adore Monet)
Monday (My Birthday!) Boat down Seine, Notre Dame, Metro to Montmartre, Champ de Mars, Change for Dinner at Jules de Verne do Eiffel tour
Tuesday: Musee D’Orsay, Invalides, Arc de Triomphe, Champ Elysees window shopping.
Do you recommend any specific tours to fit in with this list? We are willing to spend a little extra where it makes sense to have a great experience. Thank you!
