Most people will be traveling early or mid-day on the 6th day.  As such, you probably won’t be doing much on this day.  However, if you have some time, there are always many nice things to do.

In the past 5 days, you will have seen the major attractions in Paris, but you will have by no means seen everything.  To see everything, you need two weeks to a month in Paris.

Below, I will mention a few other fun things to do, according to me. 🙂

6 Days in Paris – Day 5: Notre Dame, Musee d’Orsay, Eiffel Tower

This will most likely be the last of the big ‘tourism’ days for you in Paris.  This will be the last full day that you have to experience everything that Paris has to offer.  As such, let’s start with the Notre Dame Cathedral; after that, we will move on to the Musee d’Orsay, a museum that is overshadowed by the Louvre but significantly more enjoyable than the Louvre (I’ll tell you why below); then, what would a trip to Paris be like if we did not go to the Eiffel Tower?!

Today will be a pleasant day that you can take at a nice slow pace after Versailles and it should leave you feeling satisfied that you have seen many of the amazing treats that Paris has to offer.

Let’s begin 🙂

Hopefully, you are rested up from yesterday!  Today will be an all-day affair that will saturate you with opulence and, most likely, too many other tourists ;).  Today, you will go to the Palace of Versailles.  Now, to avoid the tourists, you will have to get up early.

It will be worth it to see the magnificent creation that is the Palace of Versailles, which includes the main building (Palace), a garden that is better described as a controlled forest full of hidden fountains and paths, as well as the Grand Trianon, and Marie Antoinette’s Estate.

This will be an all day affair.

Day three in Paris will be a relatively relaxing day where you can really move at your own pace.  You will be seeing some sites near Montmartre and then off for a nice roof-top lunch, some shopping, and a nice evening around the Opera (or at the Opera if you buy some tickets 🙂 ).

Let’s begin this day with a nice ‘relaxing’ ride on the metro.

This is going to be a big day!  So, make sure to get a big breakfast.  A croissant and coffee will NOT do.  If you want to ‘experience culture’ then, sure, have that, but make sure to fill up on some real food (eggs, bacon, potatoes, beans if you’re from the U.K. and Ireland, etc.).  If you don’t fill-up now, you will pay a fortune to eat in or near the Louvre or really any of the attractions that you will be seeing today.

So, let us get started!

This is the first part of a 6 part series where I tell you what you should do with 6 days in Paris.  Each post will have a “What you should do:” section and a “What I am doing:” section. I have been to Paris many times and I think it will be interesting to share with you what I’m actually doing (and maybe why) and what a first-time visitor might want to do.

So, let us begin. Continue reading »
