Trying to build my itinerary for a trip to Paris June 9 & 10th and could use some suggestions. My husband and I will be travelling alone (our first time away from the kids) to celebrate our 10 yr anniversary. It is our first time in Paris, but will not be the last (we live a few hours away in Germany) so we are not worried about cramming everything in. The main goals are relaxation and being stress-free, keeping in mind that this may be our only chance to do some non-kid-friendly things. Not huge museum people and really not wanting to stand around in any lines during this trip. I think I have the first evening taken care of, but everything else is undecided:
Day 1: arrive Gare du nord 4:05. Accomodations close by in Montmartre area.
Drop bags in room and walk around Montmartre as time allows.
Back to room approx. 6:00 to freshen up, then metro to Montparnasse. Dinner at top of tower reserved for 7:30. After dinner spend time at tower observation deck for sunset / lights at night.
Day 2: relax in the morning, no time schedule. Breakfast in a nearby cafe.
See major Paris highlights??
Nice lunch somewhere.
5:30pm snack near Eiffel Tower and /or find picnic supplies
6:30pm Evening bike and boat tour - Fat Tire Bikes.
Day 3: depart Gare du nord 11:45. Perhaps more time walking around Montmartre after breakfast?
