Hello everyone. My mother and I are going to be spending two full days in Paris in November before a tour. I was hoping to get some feedback on my itinerary, I have two opinions so any advice would be great!
Thurs Nov 6: arrive in Paris from London via Eurostar. I'm not too sure what time just yet, so I'm keeping this day free in case we arrive quite late. We're staying at the Mercure Paris Centre Tour Eiffel, so we'll have a walk around the area regardless of arrival time.
Fri Nov 7: Notre Dame early, either the Conciergerie or Sainte Chapelle or hopefully both! Also is it easy to get to Shakespeare and Co. Bookshop from here? Then walk to the Louve for remainder of the afternoon.
Sat Nov 8: Marche aux Puce de la Porte de Vanves in the morning. Take Metro to Montmartre to see Sacre Coeur, cemetery, Moulin Rouge and Dali museum. We have to be back to the hotel by 6pm to meet for the tour, is it possible to fit all of this in?
OR is this option better?:
Fri Nov 7: Notre Dame, see Conciergerie and Sainte Chapelle from outside. Go to Montmartre for the afternoon, then go to the Louve after 6pm as it is free for students under 25 I believe?
Sat Nov 8: Vanves in the morning, then spend the afternoon in the Latin Quarter.
The Notre Dame, Louve and flea market are must do's, and we would really like to see Montmartre but we are willing to drop it if it seems too much. I chose Vanves because I heard that it was cheaper, smaller and more friendlier than Saint-Ouen, would you guys agree? I am interested in the Lost Generation of writers, is it easy to locate their hang outs in Latin Quarter, and see Gertrude Stein's house?
