Versailles is a royal chateau located on the outskirts of Paris. In 1682, King Louis XIV moved the Royal Court from the Louvre to the Palace of Versailles. For a little more than 100 years, this was the seat of government for France. That ended in 1789 with the French Revolution.

The Louvre is the world’s largest art museum. This building was once the home to French Kings, including Louis XIV. During the French Revolution in the 18th century, the Louvre was converted to a museum. The Louvre is massive and you could literally spend days here. However, you can see the highlights (Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, and the Winged Victory) in just an hour or two.

Disneyland Paris is not in the heart of Paris. It is in the suburbs west of Paris. The cheapest way to get to there is the RER (which is the commuter train line) in Paris. Make sure you take the RER train to the Marne-la-Vallée/ Chessy Station, which is the stop for Disneyland Paris. The train takes about 45 minutes and is quite comfortable. You can buy your train fare at the station. Be sure to see if you can buy roundtrip tickets to avoid the lines on the way back. .....The train stop is literally right in front of the park, which was very convenient. Show less

The Luxembourg Palace sits to one side, and be sure to stop by to admire it. If you want to take a peek at some of the garden’s hidden treasures, the Medici Fountain and Luxembourg Gardens’ very own beehives are both nearby.

 The Petit Trianon, a smaller palace on the grounds, was a refuge for those longing to escape the formality of the larger palace. Its most famous occupant was Marie Antoinette, who struggled with the lack of privacy and intense scrutiny she endured as queen. When residing at The Petit Trianon, the young monarch was able to better control her company.

If you follow this 3 days in Paris itinerary, a full Paris Pass likely won’t be worth the money unless you are going to be using a lot of transportation. If you want access to benefits like a Hop-On-Hop-Off bus tour, you may want to consider it. However, the Paris Museum Pass is a different story: by following this 3 day Paris itinerary, you willat least break even financially by purchasing the Paris Museum Pass, and the skip-the-line capabilities at popular attractions (including the Louvre and Versailles) combined with the ease of .....having your tickets already in hand are worth the effort of acquiring a pass. Plus, if you’re the type who likes to pack your sightseeing days even fuller than what we have laid out here, you’ll have an easy incentive to add on trips to the Pantheon, Conciergerie, and Centre Pompidou, which are also included with the pass. Our advice? With this itinerary, buy the Paris Museum Pass. However, if you are planning to skip some of the museums or viewpoints on this 3 day Paris itinerary, it may be better to purchase individual skip-the-line tickets for each attraction.

The Seine is the heart of Paris, and a walk along its banks takes you past some of the city’s most famous sights. But you’ll probably have to dodge people selling knock-off handbags and flashing Eiffel Towers along the way too. For a more low-key waterside experience, why not head to one of Paris’ canals. Closest to the city is the Canal St Martin, a 4.5km waterway which has nine locks and links the Seine to the Basin de la Villette. There are trendy cafés, boutiques and bistros set along the .....water’s edge and the shady banks are packed with picnickers on summer evenings. You can walk or cycle along the towpath or take a boat trip along the canal – part of which goes underground. Or if that’s still sounds too busy, you can head further out to the Canal de l’Ourcq, which runs for 100km to the north-east of the city and has a pathway for walkers, rollerbladers and cyclists.

Your French river cruise will pass right by Notre-Dame de Paris, the stunning medieval Catholic cathedral.  It is considered one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture with its pioneering use of the rib vault and flying buttresses.  It boggles my mind that this spectacular building was completed by 1260! The world was shocked and saddened when the cathedral caught fire on April 15, 2019, sustaining serious damage.  Reconstruction of the cathedral began almost immediately. The French government has mandated that the cathedral be restored to its original glory.  Reconstruction is .....expected to continue for at least five years and it is not open to the public during this time. We were able to see Notre-Dame from our cruise, covered in scaffolding.   Sadly, I haven’t seen Notre-Dame in all it’s original glory but I hope to be able to do so as soon as work is complete. Ile de la Cité, the medieval heart of Paris, is also home to the Conciergerie.  From the 10th to the 14th century, this was the home of the Kings of France before they moved across the river to the Louvre. It also has a grisly past.   The Conciergerie was used as a prison beginning in the late 14th century.  During the Reign of Terror from 1793 to 1794, thousands of people were executed via guillotine at the Conciergerie.  Marie Antoinette was held there. The Conciergerie was de-commissioned in 1914 and has since been designated as a national historic monument, although parts are still used as law courts. Show less

The Paris Pont des Arts bridge, near the Louvre, has love locks too. Thousands of them. Many more than I ever saw along the Via Dell’Amore trail. Apparently, everyone wants to lock their love in one of the most romantic cities in the world. Me too. We bought a small gold lock, which had three keys attached, for five euros from a brilliant vendor who stood at one end of the bridge. The merchant even supplied a selection of colored markers to write our tender message with. I penned a simple Pete ❤️ Annette. Pretty standard stuff. That’s about as romantic as we .....get. There were clusters of locks clipped to almost ever nook on the Pont des Arts bridge, which made it hard to find the perfect location to secure our devotion. After pacing up and down the bridge a few times, I ended up selecting a spot that was not on the chain portion of the fence, instead it was attached to another padlock, so it perfectly dangled. We then threw our 3 keys that came with the lock into the Seine river, so the lock could never be reopened, securing the love forever. Show less

The district was named for Jean-Baptiste Pigalle, a celebrated sculptor during the mid-18th century. If Pigalle were alive today, he most certainly wouldn’t be pleased that his name is linked to Paris’s red-light district. However, to be fair to the Pigalle neighbourhood, the area is not just about all things x-rated. The area was once a hub for many artistic types. Toulouse Lautrec had his studio here. Edgar Degas lived at No. 6 Boulevard de Clichy. Other painters like Picasso, Van Gogh and Maurice Neumont also once lived here. And .....up the hill of Montmartre is the Espace Dalí Montmartre where an impressive collection of Salvador Dalí’s works can be enjoyed. To the south of Place Pigalle and especially along rue de Douai, there are many stores selling musical instruments and accessories. The Musée de l’érotisme (Museum of Eroticism) is at 72 Boulevard de Clichy.  There are also plenty of cafes, brasseries, restaurants, souvenir shops and money change agencies in the area. Show less

6-minute walk from Shakespeare & Company Two cathedrals in one morning? For ones as epic as these–yes, absolutely. Sainte-Chapelle boasts one of my favorite cathedral interiors in the world, but you likely won’t notice when you first enter: the first floor is rather typically decorated and quite dark. Climb up to the second floor, though, and you’re in for quite a show: nearly every inch of the 50-foot walls (about 15 meters) are covered in elaborate stained glass. It is colorful, magical, and absolutely beautiful–I haven’t seen anything quite like it anywhere else in .....the world. Skip the line at Sainte Chapelle & purchase your ticket in advance! Show less

Undoubtedly a walking city, many of Paris' best-loved attractions are within easy walking distance of each other. However, one of the most fun ways to truly experience the city is by taking a ride on the Paris Metro. Beloved by locals and tourists alike for its scale, its offbeat Art Nouveau architecture and the sheer convenience of traversing the city's oft-clogged streets underground, the Metro is a Parisian institution. Line 6 is a favourite with tourists and offers picturesque views of several prominent attractions. For a less aesthetically pleasing but equally .....useful train-travel experience, you can take a Paris RER train out to Disneyland Paris on the eastern outskirts of the city. Show less

The Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay are Paris’ biggest and busiest museums. But once you’ve seen the Mona Lisa and Monet’s waterlilies, there are a whole host of smaller – and in some cases much weirder – museums across the city to explore. If you’re interested in science and industry, you could try the Musée des Arts et Métiers museum of industrial design, and make sure you don’t miss the amazing steampunk-style Metro station beneath the museum. If you’re interested in natural history, check out the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle next to .....the Botanic Gardens. Or for anthropology and artefacts from around the world try the Musée du Quai Branly, along the river from the Eiffel Tower. Or if that’s a bit too mainstream, Paris also has museums dedicated to fairground rides, stuffed animals and the police. And look out for special exhibitions, like the Atelier des Lumières which uses projections of artworks by Van Gogh and Klimt set to music to create an immersive art experience. Show less

Chambord’s grandeur and enormous size makes it one of the most awe-inspiring and one of the most visited castles in the Loire Valley. Some of Chambord’s highlights include the revolutionary design double helix staircase by Leonardo da Vinci, the stone ceiling with 800 carvings of crown salamander sigils, as well as the rooftop .....which is adorned with impressive spires and chimneys.

50-minute walk or 30-minute metro ride from the Louvre. Are your feet killing you yet? If so (and depending on the time), you may want to consider a metro ride at this point. If not, we highly recommend the long walk along the Seine to the Trocadero Gardens, which will take you along some beautiful Paris views and past the famous Pont Alexandre III bridge. Regardless of how you get there, we can’t imagine a better way to end your first day in Paris than with one of the very best views of the Eiffel Tower.

Journey out to La Defense (and leave the crowds behind) for a view from the top of La Grande Arche. This view may not have the same “wow factor” as those from the Arc de Triomphe or Notre Dame Cathedral, but from here you can most of Paris sprawling out in front of you.

After lunch, head across the road to the Panthéon or “temple of the Republic” as it is sometimes called. Before my recent trip to Paris, I didn’t know much about the Panthéon, but since it was included in the Paris Pass I made sure to pay a visit. This place is im-press-ive! A real gem. I learned that it was originally built as a church dedicated to St. Genevieve, the patron Saint of Paris. Today, it functions as a secular mausoleum containing the remains of distinguished French citizens. In the crypt are the .....remains of Voltaire, Victor Hugo, and Marie Curie amongst many others.

This elegant garden is full of fountains, ponds and sculptures, providing the perfect setting for a relaxing stroll. The French-style landscaped garden is between the Louvre and Place de la Concorde and during the summer, it comes to life with a carnival featuring rides for children, food stalls and games. A quiet place that is in the middle of the city yet seems like it is far away, I would definitely recommend a quick walk to enjoy the beautifully bloomed colourful flowers and sprawling green grass fields.

Paris is a large city, but it is surprisingly easy to get around. The city is made up of 20 arrondissements, or districts, starting with the 1st in the center (this is where you’ll find the Louvre), and spiraling outward from there. Outside of the 20 arrondissements, you get into the suburbs of the city, which can sometimes be the less safe areas of Paris–though as a tourist, you’ll likely have no reason to venture out there. When deciding where to stay in Paris, try not to put too much stock .....in being near any particular attraction. Paris’ main sights are spread far and wide in its arrondissements (a few examples: the Eiffel Tower is in the 7th, the Louvre in the 1st, Montmartre in the 18th, and Notre Dame in the 4th), and wherever you end up staying, you’ll be traveling through the city during your stay.

The golden doors of the Petit Palais are one of the most instagrammable places in Paris–but to snap photos of them closed (and therefore at their most photogenic), be sure to arrive before the museum opens at 10am or on a Monday, when it’s closed all day. On the other hand, the interior of the building contains the Museum of Fine Arts and it is completely free to visit–so if you stop by during business hours, you’ll have a chance to enjoy the museum.

Also on Île de la Cité, just a few minutes walk from Notre Dame, is the beautiful Sainte-Chapelle. This royal chapel is located within the walls of Palais de Justice (formerly known as Palais de la Cité), the former residence of the Kings of France until the 14th century. To visit the chapel you have to get through the security line at Palais de Justice. The royal chapel was commissioned by King Louis IX of France to house his collection of relics, including Christ’s Crown of Thorns—one of the most important relics in medieval Christendom.
