My future husband and I are honeymooning in Paris and Rome in early-mid September. We will be staying in the St. Germain area in Paris for approx. 3 days (we arrive Tuesday afternoon and will depart Friday late afternoon). We will then be arriving in Rome Friday night and leaving the following Tuesday morning - so 3 full days.
Looking for any information at all, as first-timers in Europe! Particularly, what should we pack for clothing (besides comfy shoes!). We tend to be "carry-on only" travelers. And, of course, suggestions on restaurants (particularly, a semi-nice dinner one night some place with the Eiffel Tower in view). Want to see the typical tourist sites (Eiffel Tower, Versailles, Arc de Triomphe, Seine River cruise, Orsay, Pantheon, Champs Elysses, Notre Dame, Louvre, Catacombs, etc.)... Any tips on how to skip lines and get around? I've read that the Paris Pass isn't actually a great deal. We're also planning on taking the metro from the airport (CDG), if there's some transportation pass I'm missing, too?
Thanks in advance!
