  1. Supposed to be in Paris this weekend but alas the C-word has put a stop to that. So I’ll settle for reading about it instead. Love this itinerary. All the times I’ve been to Paris, still not made it to Versailles.

  2. It is always interesting to see what people put on their itinerary for a visit to Paris. The city provides such a wide variety of things to do. Good to know that you recommend getting a Paris Pass. And that the pass includes the Metro too. It was many years ago that I visited the Louvre. But I did not recall it being closed on some days. Good idea to check in advance. Good that you took a day trip to Versailles. It is a lovely spot to visit.

  3. Paris is one of my favourite walking cities. I can spend hours just wandering the streets and stopping off a little cafes to people watch. We’re planning another trip there in March, so it’d be great to incorporate a trip to Versailles this time around.

  4. Paris is such a vintage city and there is so much to see and experience. This 5 day itinerary includes all the major must see in one of the most beautiful cities of the world. We too were in Paris for a couple of days and covered most of the places listed by you except Disneyland. However there is so much more to explore in Paris and the surroundings, we need to get back soon.

    1. Yes, Paris has lot many things to offer and you really need more days to cover nearby attractions too.

  5. Paris has been my dream destination for quite some time now! I want to go so badly! Your pictures are beautiful, everything is perfect and as In picture it in my mind, but it must have been horrible to be hacked, while in Paris! I also like your 5 day plan!!

  6. That’s really scary you got hacked 3 times in Paris! I’ve done all your recommendations, and totally agree with you. Disneyland Paris is a lot of fun, even if you go without kids! Versailles is beautiful, and one place you’ll never get tired of

  7. absolutely wonderful. a friend and I are trying to do some crowdfunding to go to Paris next year. I though all your pictures were stunning

  8. I always thought Paris as the end of all travel destination. People are upfront, open minded and drowned in culture. Though this place has gone through a lot these years, the Parisian keep looking forward. As Audrey Hepburn said, “Paris is always a good idea.” I like that.

  9. Paris is one of my favourite cities in the world, I still remember I couldn’t believe when I landed there for the first time few years back. Visited it multiple times after that but the feeling is the same every time. Your 5 day plan seems great. I loved watching cabaret at The Moulin Rouge, it was unrealistically breathtaking.

  10. That looks like a packed 5-day trip. Paris has always been on my bucket list. But I love that you’ve shown me some new ideas to exploring Paris!

  11. I would love to visit Paris before I am getting too old. Seems a very very nice and sweet place…Lovely!!

  12. I’ve been there 5 times already, still this city keeps surprising me with something new every time I visit. Paris is fantastic, and the french people are wonderful. Although definitely agreed with your tips for safety…pickpocketing is a big issue there, and also everyone should watch out for those guys “selling” keychains and souvenirs or lucky bracelets around the Eiffel Tower or at the Sacré Coeur.

  13. I love visiting Paris, and living the Parisian life. I haven’t done Disneyland in Paris as I have done the one in Tokyo multiple times. Champs Elysees is one of my favourite localities. <3 These are great tips, thanks for sharing.

  14. Paris has always been on my bucket list. Im always interested w/ their food and culture. thanks for providing an itinerary! hope you can also do accommodation reviews to help us travelers.
