How to Make the Most of Five Days in Paris


Paris is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. With so much to taste, see and experience, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the possibilities. I recently returned from a five day trip to Paris. We managed to do a lot of sightseeing while still finding time to relax, explore the neighborhood, and drink plenty of champagne.

I’m here now to share with you our trip to the City of Lights, and how we managed to squeeze in (almost) everything we wanted to do.

Arrival in Paris

Day One: Notre Dame, the Louvre, Tuileries, Musee d’Orsay

Day Two: Notre Dame, Opera Garnier, and the Eiffel Tower

Day Three: Versailles and a dinner cruise on the Bateaux Mouches

Day Four: Sainte Chapelle, le Louvre, and the Eiffel Tower
