I spent two months in Paris earlier this year and it is a fantastic city. You are also going at a great time, weather-wise and you will have a great
time. A few things I would recommend:
--Obviously the Eifel Tower. Go early, like an hour before it opens as the lines can get really long.
-- Great churches in Paris. Notre Dame, Sac le Cuer. Fantastic. Ifyou are into the church bit, you can check the schedule and visit when they
choir is practicing.
-- Montemarte. The artist section of Paris. Very cool and a great place to sit outside, have a drink or two and people watch.
-- Latin Quarter (walking distance from Notre Dame). Don't eat there though. Tourist traps and lousy food for the most part and over-priced.
Just go to check it out and have a few drinks
-- the catacombs are amazing and definately worth it
-- The Louve. Huge, way too much to see in a day, but definately worth it worth it. Just get a guide book and do one or two things. The Egypt
exhibit is fantastic. Might also want to check out the Mona Lisa while you're at it
I could go on, but those are a few ideas. Finally, if you want a good pint of Guiness, the James Joyce Pub is a winner.
