Paris is the last stop for a 17 day trip to Europe. We fly from Rome to Orly on May 6th and land around 5 pm. We fly from CDG on the morning of May 9th. I need some ideas how to get to the hotel, which is located in the 9th district at 30 Rue la Bruyere. I want to see and do the following while in Paris and I'm open to other suggestions on what to see, do or places to eat given the amount of time.
- Eiffel Tower -will continue checking on line for tickets but may just end up taking the stairs! Is it worth eating at the restaurants there? Or will I be better off eating somewhere else where I'm not paying for the elevated view and subpar food? ie Disneyland or top of the Space Needle in Seattle?
- Louvre Museum- any suggestions are appreciated, not very likely to stay more than 2-3 hours. Do they allow non flash photography in the musuem?
- Notre Dame- thoughts?
- Evening cruise on Seine-I'm hoping this will be a romantic last night or second to last night? Suggestions on cruises?
This is my second trip to Paris and my wife's first. She is open to seeing and doing whatever in Paris. Thank you in advance!-Les
