3 Days Itinerary
Head first to the Eiffel
Tower: morning (or late evening) is the best time to
avoid the crowds. The most thrilling approach is via Champ de
Afterwards, tour the Seine on the Bateaux Mouches; these boats
depart regularly from place de l'Alma.
From here, walk or take the métro to the Arc
de Triomphe; from the top there's a great view of the
boulevards emanating from L'Étoile and the noble vistas
extending to the Louvre
Then work your way along the Champs
Elysees, across Place de la Concorde
and the Jardin des Tuileries to the Louvre.
Don't visit the museum now - wait until the next morning, when
it's less crowded.
Get to the Louvre
(closed on Tuesdays) early to avoid the crowds; in one morning
you'll only be able to see part of the museum - it's that big.
After lunch, wander along the ritzy rue St-Honoré. Here
you'll find the French president's home, the Palais de l'Élysée
(closed to the public), and the Neoclassical Église
de la Madeleine.
For good shopping and a look at Haussmann's 19th-century Paris
and the famous Opéra
Garnier, join up with the Grand Boulevards.
Spend the late afternoon getting a sense of Paris's village-like
character by exploring Montmartre.
Either walk (heading north along rue du Faubourg Montmartre to
rue Notre-Dame de Lorette to rue Fontaine to place Blanche) or
take the métro to the Pigalle or Blanche stop.
On boulevard de Clichy you'll find the famous Moulin Rouge.
Continue up into Montmartre,
via place des Abbesses. On this square are two Art Nouveau gems:
the church of St-Jean de Montmartre, and the Art Nouveau Guimard
entrance to the Abbesses métro station.
From here, walk through the winding, hilly streets to place du
Tertre, and then on to Sacré-Coeur, where there's a tremendous
view of the city below.
Start the morning admiring the Impressionists in the Musée
d'Orsay (closed on Monday); arrive early to avoid the crowds.
Then head to Notre-Dame
Cathedral, perhaps the most inspiring monument in Paris.
In the afternoon explore the Latin
Quarter, using the Panthéon dome as a landmark. Take
time to relax in the Jardin du Luxembourg or sip coffee in a neighborhood
