I've change some things based on your earlier feedback. Older Kids still insisting on Versailles. The 11 yo old and I still might not go. I don't want to give up any time in Paris!
Also based on these plans any recommendations for Metro tix?
Day 1, Thursday: 11:30 Arrive Gare de Nord, Metro to apartment, drop luggage
Picnic in Luxemburg Gardens, this is near our apt.
We want to do Eiffel Tower & River Cruise at night with the lights but sunset isn't until 9:45pm!
Recommendation for timing of each of these?
Eiffel Tower timed entry to top (not available to purchase yet)
Evening river cruise.
Recommendation for Dinner?
Day 2, Friday: Versailles? Should we allow the entire day for Versailles? I would prefer a guided tour for the family. any recommendations?
Day 3: Saturday: Flea Market?
Musee D'orsey & L'orangerie
Day 4, Sunday: American Church at 11:00
Lunch between church & Louvre recommendation?
Louvre Timed entry at 2:00 pm
Day 5, Monday: Montemartre/Sacre Coeur and Notre Dame/St Chappelle
We can walk to Notre Dame from our apartment.
Wouldn't mind wandering around the Marais.
