- Day 1: The must-sees
In the calm of the early morning, enjoy your croissant/coffee at the Jardin du Luxembourg. Then, head to the Seine for a morning stroll. On the way, you will discover the church of Saint Sulpice and the abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés. You arrive at the Pont des Arts aka 'lovers' bridge' where Parisians and tourists mix for a photo. On the other side, the Louvre and its gardens. We leave you a moment to find Mona Lisa and the Egyptian treasures.
At noon, it's time for lunch in one of the brasseries along the rue de Rivoli. We recommend the Café Blanc. Your walk continues through the Tuileries and the Place de la Concorde surmounted by its 23 meter high obelisk, a gift from Egypt to France. You are now at the bottom of the Champs-Elysées. What an adventure!
At the end of the day, watch the Eiffel Tower from the Trocadero. It lights up every hour from nightfall. A very busy first day.
- Day 2 : Left Bank
This morning, you stroll in the Latin Quarter. The Pantheon, then the Place de la Contrescarpe, you enter the Mouf' district. It's time to taste a delicious crêpe. The Mouffetard street has the atmosphere of a country village. Just next door, you can see the teddy bears of the Gobelins district. An initiative of the local shopkeepers to attract the curious.
Today, couscous at the Great Mosque of Paris! An opportunity to discover this magnificent monument. Then cross the Jardin des Plantes before reaching the Seine. Notre-Dame welcomes you proudly and grandly. Last stop, the Sainte-Chapelle; a historical jewel!
