UNESOCO World Heritage Site - Versailles

Paris in 3 days

Paris is worth a visit. Why?

The city has flair, beautiful old buildings, museums, history, gardens, the Seine and much more.

Our Top 5: Eiffel Tower, Louvre, the Galleries Lafayette, Versailles, and Notre Dame, although due to the 2019 fire, the interior cannot be visited. But you can still book a VR-Tour.

We traveled with the TGV from Stuttgart main station to the Gare de l’est. In Paris we bought first a 10-pack metro tickets (detailed information on Metro Paris: tickets and prices) and headed to the Best Western Hotel Trocadero .

If you don’t want to walk take the the Hop-on- Hop-off Bus 35 Euro, 24 hours.

Paris Impressions

Our trip log book 3.– 6. November

The first attraction for us was the Louvre and the Mona Lisa, we pre-booked the tickets, so that we were quickly admitted after we had shown our Covid Pass. We had to queue up to watch the Mona Lisa because everyone wants to see her, even though hardly anyone knows why she is so famous. If you want to make yourself smart, you can read it here. In short, it is still not known for sure who Leonardo da Vinci painted. In 1911 the painting was stolen from the Louvre and in 1913 a call was received from Florence that the Mona Lisa had appeared and they brought it back to Paris.

The Louvre is in the 1st arrondissement of Paris (one of the 20 districts), where you will find the following sights with which you can fill your day:

 4. & 5. November 

We took the train to Versailles and toured the premises and the park. The Eiffel Tower at night was the conclusion and prelude to the next day.

After enjoying the view of Paris from above from the Eiffel Tower the next day, we continued by foot to Le Marais – the gay district of Paris. Here you will find many boutiques and pubs as well as historic buildings as it is one of the oldest part of Paris. On our walk we also admired the Saint-Paul Cathedral, the Town Hall – HĂ´tel de Ville and the Norte Dame from the outside.

November 6th

We have dedicated the last day entirely to the Champs ÉlysĂ©es. With the Arc de Triumph on one end and the Place de la Concorde at the other end and the adjacent Tuilerie Garden. The best way to start is at the Petit Palais – Museum of Fine Arts & Palais de la DĂ©couverte – Science Museum from there head towards the Arc de Triumph, on Avenue Montaine on the left is the luxury boutiques of Paris. On the Champs you will find many restaurants in beautiful old buildings. Don’t miss the delicious  Macrons at La Duree.

We haven’t explored everything yet, so I’m already looking forward to my next visit. In the list Paris sights you will find some destinations as well as tips for your Paris trip.

Information of the Paris Tourist Office are very helpful to plan your trip. Of course, there is also a multi-day pass for Paris under turobpass.com. We preferred to book what we wanted to see, and in the end it was cheaper.
