4 Day Paris Itinerary

We're coming in on the Eurostar on a Wednesday at 19:17 and leaving Sunday at 10:25. It will just be my fiancee and I and we're trying to figure out an itinerary to try and stick to for a small amount of time.

Some of the main places that we would like to see is:
Notre Dame (which is right next to where we're staying), Sacre Coeur, Arc De Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, Musee d'Orsay Museum,Luxembourg Gardens.

Any advice would help, Thanks!

Just to give you a rough idea on how long it takes to do what (except the d'Orsay whose door I haven't darkened but once):

Notre Dame: thirty minutes (without the tower)

Arc de Triomph: fifteen minutes (without going up)

Lux Gardens: one hour (walking all paths and resting by the pond for a while)

Sacre Coeur: ten minutes (plus an hour sitting on the steps and a couple hours wandering Montmartre)

Eiffel tower: one hour (plus line time, but do it at night when the view is better and the lines shorter)

You've got time for a whole lot more. Make a list and I'll build you a route.

Since so much of the art at D'Orsay is out on loan or elsewhere, I suggest visiting the Orangerie &/or Marmatton museums for Impressionists. Both museums are beautiful and wll layed-out.
