Paris: Main monuments and walks through its neighborhoods and small streets

What is more romantic than walking through the streets of the city of love? Paris is a mandatory destination! There are so many things to do, that you will never get bored. But if it’s your first trip to Paris, know the main monuments, the most important museums and, over all, get lost in the Parisian streets!

DAY TO DAY Itinerary day by day

The prices that appear per day are referential and correspond to the sum of activities that were made that day

    DAY 1 USD

    This first day, sign up for a Free Guided Tour around the city (2 hours), so you can get to know the general history of Paris better. When the tour ends, go to District 16, a none tourist zone. Go to the Allée des Cygnes, there you will find the original Statue of Liberty. Keep walking to the Field of Mars and drink a glass while you see the Eiffel Tower illuminated.

    DAY 2 USD 29

    Go to the Ile de la Cité to visit two of the most beautiful churches in Paris: Notre Dame and Sainte Chapelle. Each visit will take you around 30 minutes. When you are done, walk to the Louvre Museum and stay until it closes and until you can. At night you can go to the Tino-Rossi Garden, which is a park on the edge of the Seine River, where many people gather to drink and dance in the amphitheatres.

    DAY 3 USD 37

    A day of more museums! Go to the Invalides museum (where the tomb of Napoleon is – 2 hours) to Rodin (the sculptor – 1 hour) and the Orsay (Impressionist art – 3 hours). Then, stroll through Montmartre, one of the most typical neighborhoods of Paris and that seems to be suspended in time. When you finish your walk, stay on the stairs of the Sacré Coeur to enjoy an amazing view of Paris while you have a few beers.

    DAY 4 USD 14

    Start this day at the Arc de Triomphe (1 hour) and then walk along the Champs Elysees (the main avenue of Paris), passing by the Place de la Concorde, until you reach the Tuileries Garden. This garden is one of the most beautiful in Paris and perfect for you to sit down to rest and recharge. Continue walking the streets of the Marais neighborhood and ends in the Latin Quarter, which is an area with a lot of movement.

    DAY 5 USD 42

    Go to Versailles! The visit is not only to the palace, but also to the gardens. They are 800 hectares of area, which I do not think you can cover all of them in a day, but it’s worth staying the maximum time possible (it opens until 6:30 pm). On your way back, relax by taking a boat trip on the Seine.

    DAY 6 USD

    This last day, go to breakfast at the Le Marché des Enfants Rouges. When you’re done, walk down the St Martin Canal until you reach La Villette. In the afternoon, the time you have left free you can take advantage of in the Luxembourg Garden!

RECOMMENDATIONS Tips for your trip

All the days in Paris you can do it by walking if you like. The other option is to do it by metro and you will need about 18 trips at the most. Instead of buying the subway tickets separately, I recommend buying the taco of 10, so it is cheaper.

You can buy metro tickets in machines at the enter and you have the option of put the indications in Spanish. In large metro stations, there are also windows and normally, those who attend speak Spanish or English.

In Paris, there are many beautiful public places (like parks) that are perfect for resting. As it is not a cheap city (and less in the tourist areas!), I recommend you buy food at the supermarket and lunch in the parks or at the edge of the river Sena

If you want to climb the Eiffel Tower, I recommend you avoid it during the end week and try to be there as early as possible (opens at 9am). If you want a guided tour, I recommend this tour.

Important information:

Schengen visa: see if you need a visa to enter the Schengen areaZona

If you go from Monday to Saturday or from Tuesday to Sunday, buy the weekly NAVIGO card to have unlimited access to public transport (not 7 days, it works from Monday to Sunday). It costs 5 USD (the card) + 27 USD (recharge) and you have to carry a photo ID. Includes transportation to Versailles and the airport.

On Wednesdays and Fridays, the Louvre opens until 9pm. The Louvre is GIANT. I recommend you check your map, so you can organize your visit before going.

To go to Versailles, you have to find a subway station where you pass the RER C. The trip from the center of Paris takes about 1 hour.
