3 Days in Paris

My husband and I will be visiting Paris for 3 days in November. We will be taking the Eurostar from London on a Sunday morning and then taking a Eurostar to Brussels on Wednesday morning. We hope to see the major sights but also spend some time just walking and seeing the city.

What area would everyone recommend staying? We would like to be within walking distance of some of the major sights and plan to use public transport to get everywhere else. We are both in our late 20s and would love to be close to some great cafes/restaurants. We do like local bars/pubs but are not really into nightclubs.

Thanks for your help!! Any other suggestions you may have to make our 3 days in Paris better are much appreciated!!

Where you stay depends on your budget and interest. Paris has everything for everyone. Since you didn't indicate what you like to do (dining, shopping, visiting museums, etc), It would be difficult to give suggestions. To get the most of public transport, I suggest that you look at the metro map and see where you like to be. For example, Repubic and Chatelet have the most metro lines servinging those stations. At those stations, you can pretty much get to lots of sights/interesting places using metro lines. There are buses and trams but traffic can be bad sometimes. If you have a healthty budget, Le Meurice is right across from the Tuleries. From there you can walk to the Louvre, L'Orangerie, Musee D'Orsay, Place Concorde. Alternatively, you can try Republic as it is well served by public transport. It is also close by Canal St Martin. There is a renaissance going on that area. For your age bracket, you more likely to enjoy the Republic area.

Good luck and happy travels.

Thanks for your advice!

This is our first visit to Paris so we would really like to see the Eiffel Tower, Champs Elysses and Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame, and Sacre Coeur. We plan to spend some time at the Louvre and possibly d'Orsay if time allows. We would like to stay in an area where we can stroll around and experience the Parisian lifestyle, stop for a light lunch and glass of wine. We do love dining out, both a mix of nicer restaurants and local pubs.

We would like to keep hotel costs a little lower to allow some extra spending money (and also the poor exchange rate for the american dollar right now). We are thinking around 125 euro or so, but we are willing to spend a little more if worth while.
