Betreff: Paris – a perfect day – plan
We could get up early, have a coffee and a croissant in one of the many café (it’s cheaper if we eat it standing in frong of the bar then when we sit down at a table) and head for the Notre Dame. Since it is still early, we will have marvellous views over the river Seine. When we come out of the Cathedral we walk around the Ile de la Cité,, the oldest part of Paris and head for shopping …. Gallery Lafayette!
Now we will have lunch. I suggest that we buy a sandwich and eat it in the nice gardens of the Tuileries. After lunch, we have a walk in the direction of the Arc de Triomphe, over the Cahmps Elysees. Although we might be tempted to take the metro because it is faster, please walk. We will see more and that’s what you are here for after all. On our way, we pass the Petit Palais and the Grand Palais.
We have seen him all day from a distance but now we can go up. The Eiffel Tower. It offers some great views over Paris and is a building not to be missed. Take the elevator because we’ve done quite a bit of walking already.
It will be quite late already when we go down. However, we still have to do a few things. The hotel des Invalides is between us and the Quartier Latin, where we will sepend the rest of the evening, so we might consider visiting the hotel before moving on to the QL.
Wander through the small streets of the QL and st. Germain des Pres. Small
boutiques, antique shops and book sellerls fill the maze of streets. When we get hungry, sit down in one of the many restaurants in the Quartier. May I suggest Lebanese food? Well, we can decide later…
Now have a coffee and a stroll to digest. Walk up to the Pantheon and sit outside the Jardin du Luxembourg. We must be ehausted. Well, I told you one day wouldn’t be enough. There are so many things we haven’t seen yet.
