Ok, so I'm going to Paris with my daughter and her family in late November of this year. We will be staying near Disneyland Paris as my daughter's family go there quite often. It's my first trip to Europe and we will be in Paris proper for one day to see the Louvre and then I'm staying overnight by myself in the main area, not sure where, but centrally located.
I'll have one full day on my own, in Paris and I've made a list of the things I want to see and do:
See the Eiffel Tower (don't need to go up at all)
See Arc De Triumphe
Atelier des Lumières Van Gogh
Champs Elysee (may see that the day before)
Moulin Rouge (not going in)
Bottom line, I have no French other than very basic phrases. I'm concerned about getting around on my own...I've watched videos so I know how to get to these places on the rail system. I had also heard that there are a bunch of street thugs around Sacre Coeur that may harass lone sightseers....
Is Sacre Coeur or Moulin Rouge worth a visit? It seems somewhat far from everything else.
Also, is a river cruise worth it or not?
Anything that I am missing?
