We are 2 couples in our 50s. All first time in Paris. We land on Monday July 3rd mid morning and leave Wednesday the 5th at 10 am. We are staying at a small hotel close to Rue Cler - Hotel Muguet.
With most of the “main” sites closed on our only full day there, it’s hard to know what to do. We will definitely wander around Rue Cler and walk to the tower to do the picnic thing and see it lit up. Maybe keep walking to see the arc? (Day or night?). Likely do a simple boat tour up the Seine.
We are wondering if taking a trip to see Sainte-Chapelle would be “worth” the time? It looks amazing but worth a short Uber? (Doubtful we would be up to a long walk).
Maybe Moulin Rouge? Looks very “quintessentially touristy”.
None of us are foodies but maybe a moderately priced decent meal? Anything to suggest within walking distance from our hotel? Or if we did the show, anything that wouldn’t be stupid touristy around there? Or instead of sitting for what I hear is a long process in a real restaurant, maybe gabbing bites (and drinks of course) in a few fun bars? If we don’t succumb to jet lag (we will be coming from Calgary).
Anything else that is a short walk from our hotel or worth an Uber that would be good to see? The catacombs look interesting but my wife’s claustrophobia would make it too interesting.
Open to any suggestions.
Thanks for the help.
