I will be in Paris the last week of March 2017 and am trying to plan out a rough itinerary of what to see on what days. We will be arriving on a Sunday morning into Paris have a total of 4 days (leaving Thursday AM). We are going to purchase the Paris Pass to see a lot of the city's attractions.
I want to try to maximize our time by avoiding long wait times at major attractions, specifically with Versailles and the Louvre since those sound like the busiest attractions. From what I've read, it sounds like the busiest days at the Louvre are Sun/Mon and it's closed Tues, while busiest days at Versailles are Sun/Tues and closed, Mon which leaves Wednesday the best day to avoid the worst crowds for both of these attractions with our schedule. We plan on heading to Versailles early morning Wednesday to get there a little before opening and spend most of the day there (heading back to Paris maybe around 3-4pmish depending on our mood).
Since Wednesday is a day that the Louvre is open later, would it be too ambitious to try and visit the museum for a couple hours that evening after returning to Paris since it sounds like lines are much shorter at that time? We want to follow the Rick Steve's tour which says to allow for at least 2 hours, and while I realize the Louvre is huge we don't necessarily care to spend a ton of time there as we aren't the biggest art fans but definitely want to see the museum.
Or am I overthinking the size of the crowds at that time of the year? Your comments/suggestions are appreciated!
