Ok, so now that we have Bruges figured out...onto Paris! Mostly looking for feedback on if we're pacing ourselves okay, and not jumping back and forth too much during each day. We don't want to be really rushed or feel like we're just trying to get through the list (can be hard for me at times!). Hard part is that we are there on a Sunday to Wednesday so some places closed Monday/Tuesday. A side note: We want to see some of the main museums, but we aren't major art lovers, so we won't spend countless hours in each. So, here goes!
SUNDAY-Arrive 1:30 at Gare du Nord. Metro to hotel in Rue Cler and check in.
Visit Napoleon's Tomb and Army Museum. Buy Musuem pass to use Monday and Tuesday
Dinner in Rue Cler area
Eiffel Tower around 8-9 to stand in line for who knows how long!
MONDAY-Take Metro to Louvre in morning.
Walk through Tuileries to Place de la Concorde.
Walk part of Champs Elysees and take metro to Arc de Triomphe. Not sure what is the best part to walk but don't want to walk all the way from Tuileries to Arc so advice greatly appreciated.
Dinner somewhere, maybe a picnic dinner?
Seine Cruise with probably Bateaux Pariseans (maybe do a dinner cruise with them, but unsure)
TUESDAY-Start with Rick's Historic City Walk
If time and or energy, visit the Rodin.
Dinner and evening open.
WEDNESDAY-We don't leave until 2:30 from St. Lazare for Normandy. Unsure of plans, perhaps go to Sacre Coeur or Rodin if didn't do Tuesday. Not sure of timing and convenience of going to Sacre Coeur. Maybe just hang out in Rue Cler, or other places?
This has been a difficult one to try and piece together as we've never been so trying to guess on times. Suggestions greatly appreciated! Merci!
