{Travel} Paris Itinerary 

I can not believe I am typing up my Paris itinerary because Paris has been one of those places I have always wanted to visit but never have. I think the biggest reason I have not gone is because I was waiting to go with someone I love. Paris being the city of love, I just wanted to go with my love and if there was ever a place to get engaged it’s there (in my mind). But then I realised waiting on someone before I can do something I have always wanted to do is not how I roll and with some people you can be waiting a life time before they make a move. So I took the bull by the horn and bought myself a return ticket to Paris and currently searching for a nice hotel.

As I want to make use of every single moment I will be in Paris, I have decided to go on Friday afternoon via Eurostar. If you don’t know already, Eurostar has a lovely deal currently going on (at time of writing this post), buy return ticket to Paris from London for £58 (£29 each way) normally the prices are from £69 single and being a bargain hunter it was a welcome deal. I think dependent on how it goes, I might book another trip to Paris alone.

Since this will be my first time, I have decided to plan my time there and make sure I use it wisely and effectively. All my weekend getaways I am always sightseeing and take the time to appreciate the little things that I stumble upon on my travels. Paris will be different, it will be busy and jam-packed because I won’t just be sightseeing I will also be heading to Disney for a day so I am sure you can imagine my excitement.


Paris Itinerary

As I have mentioned above, I have never been to Paris before and not sure how the logistics will work but I can not wait to explore by myself and see what I can  get up to. So here is the plan without the logistics.

Day 0 – Friday: Explore the neighborhood

Get familiar with how to get to and from the station, every time I travel alone I always book private cars to take me to and from the airport but since this will be Eurostar (train) I am hoping to get another training to my hotel then walk (if walkable) the rest of the way. I have found a hotel which is ten minutes from the station but will see if I book it or not.

Day 1  – Saturday: Sightseeing

I hope to spend Saturday sightseeing around Paris, my plan is to visit the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Alexander Bridge, Petit Palais, Lourve museum, Luxembourg Gardens, Notre Dame and Pompidou center. If all goes well and weather permits I hope to visit all of these places.

Day 2 – Sunday: Disney Paris

I have never been to Disney before and as someone whose grown up wanting and praying to visit Disney one day I am more than excited to be visiting. I will be buying a one day ticket to visit two parks and I can not wait, I will still dress up as mickey .

Have you ever been to Paris? What’s your favourite place to visit? What about Disney?

    It’s one of my ultimate dream to go to the romantic city as well but now that I have a family my dream is to take my family to Disney in Paris…

    • June 12, 2016 / 11:00 pm

      I want to experience the city for myself then Disney land before I have a family of my own

    We went to Paris a few years back and love every bit of everything as well as the places we’ve seen, food we tried and so on. Thank you for sharing this. Brought back wonderful memories.

    • June 11, 2016 / 9:45 am

    I am sure you’ll have a blast even without someone you love. Getting engaged there, though, would be pretty neat. Every girl’s dream 🙂

    • June 8, 2016 / 2:17 pm

      Thanks so much, every girls dream indeed

    Every country has Disney, I wish we have one in the Philippines! I would love to see Paris too, maybe one day I’ll be there.

    • June 8, 2016 / 6:50 am

      We don’t have one in the UK otherwise I would have gone by now lol but I know what you mean

    • June 8, 2016 / 6:49 am

    Paris is definitely one of those cities that is on my bucket list to visit! I can’t wait to see how your trip went.

    • June 8, 2016 / 6:48 am

      Thanks Robin on mine too and will be ticking it off soon

  10. June 8, 2016 / 12:06 am

    I really want to visit Paris one day! Disney in Paris sounds even more awesome!

    • June 8, 2016 / 6:47 am

      I know right, I am too excited

  11. June 7, 2016 / 10:15 pm

    Oh, amazing! Paris is probably my favourite city, I have been a few times and found something new to love every time. I’ve done the touristy things but also stayed with a french friend one time and got to go to a play and hang out in the less touristy areas so that was really nice.

    • June 8, 2016 / 6:47 am

      That sounds really nice, I want to visit both the touristy and non tourist places

  12. June 7, 2016 / 8:56 pm

    I have never been to Paris but it is on my bucket list. I want to explore the entire city and maybe would check out the Disney in Paris to see how it compares to the one back home.

    • June 8, 2016 / 6:45 am

      It’s on my bucketlist too

    I have never been to Paris, but it’s one of my top places that I really would love to go to. I think from all the photos I would really love going there. Such a beautiful place I have heard. I hope that I’ll be able to go someday.

    • June 8, 2016 / 6:44 am

      I hope you are able to go one day

    I never been in Paris but I really want to go there if I have a chance.

    • June 7, 2016 / 3:09 pm

      I hope you do soon

  16. June 7, 2016 / 1:16 pm

    Yes, I’ve been. I love Paris. Never been to Euro Disney & yet to make it to Versailles. But I’ve done the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame, Sacre Coeur, Moulin Rouge, Champs Elysee, Pantheon, Trocadero, etc. I would advise a bit of research into the Metro, as I found it really confusing to understand. It’s probably actually very simple, but I hadn’t looked into how it works before getting there & I’m scared of undergrounds anyway, so it didn’t make sense to me & I didn’t want to risk being on it ages by being confused! So I avoided it. That is a LOT of walking! (Lucy/R is for Hoppit)

    • June 7, 2016 / 1:19 pm

      I definitely need to study their rail system and see how I will be moving.

  17. June 7, 2016 / 9:27 am

    I have never been to France at all ( I really want to!) but I am quite surprised you have never been! I can’t wait to see what you get up to!

    • June 7, 2016 / 10:15 am

      I know right, I have been busy jetting around the world but never been to Paris still lol

  18. June 7, 2016 / 9:04 am

    Drinking coffee in Paris was #2 on my #40before40 list and I spent five glorious days there last September, exploring the city by foot (geocache by geocache) and I loved every single moment of it! You’ll love it there!

    • June 7, 2016 / 10:12 am

      Oooh I want to do that too explore by foot some time

  19. June 7, 2016 / 7:30 am

    Paris is a never-fail, lovely tourist spot for me. Your plans for that weekend are spot on, almost similar to what I had before. Disney’s everywhere and I love them, and I’m also excited about the new movies from them.

    • June 7, 2016 / 10:08 am

      I am too excited about Paris

    Paris will always be one of the most beautiful cities for me. It’s really one of the places worth going to. Sounds like you have a lot planned during your stay there!

    • June 7, 2016 / 10:05 am

      And I am honoured to be going there soon

  21. June 7, 2016 / 4:04 am

    I like your plan! I went to Paris when I was in high school. I really want to go back though!

    • June 7, 2016 / 10:04 am

      Thanks Liz

  22. June 7, 2016 / 3:32 am

    I hope you had the best time! Paris is so gorgeous – cannot wait to get over there ASAP! xoxo

    • June 7, 2016 / 10:02 am

      I can’t wait to go, I am so excited for it

  23. June 7, 2016 / 12:43 am

    People don’t understand why I enjoy doing things by myself, especially traveling but it’s like you said, if you end up waiting for someone you love or someone who might want to do what you want to do, it might be too late; I’m not willing to take that chance!

    I’m SUPER jealous of your Paris trip and good for you for going. I can’t wait to hear all about it!

    • June 7, 2016 / 10:01 am

      Thanks Kayla, it’s easier to do it yourself than wait on people who probably won’t even want to do it with you

    • June 7, 2016 / 9:59 am

      I can’t wait to see it for my self

  24. June 6, 2016 / 9:58 pm

    I am lucky to have been a couple of times the lady time was on my first wedding anniversary. We drive down and parked just outside of Paris and got the metro in. We saw Moulin Rouge which we were there it was great 🙂 x

    • June 6, 2016 / 10:34 pm

      Oh wow how romantic I can’t wait to see the iconic places and discover some hidden alleys

  25. June 6, 2016 / 9:55 pm

    I’ve been to Paris a couple of times. My favorite things about the city is the amazing French Bread, and the canal tour I took. You get to see the city by boat and explore the underground canals and locks. It was so interesting, minus the part where I dozed off from jet lag. lol.

    • June 6, 2016 / 10:33 pm

      I want to do the boat tour too but will see how many things I can do in 2 days

  26. June 6, 2016 / 9:44 pm

    You’ll love Disneyland, I’m sure. I did venture into Paris for the day when we went but I’d love to go back and do it properly. have a greta time.

    • June 6, 2016 / 10:33 pm

      Thanks Ali I can not wait there is so much I want to see

  27. June 6, 2016 / 8:30 pm

    I’m so jealous of your trip! I cant wait to follow along on Social Media. 😉

    • June 6, 2016 / 10:31 pm

      Awww thanks so much, I hope to keep it update throughout

  28. June 6, 2016 / 5:49 pm

    Paris is worth visiting and revisiting. There is so much to see and explore! It is not only for lovers, it is a great family vacation destination as well. Hope to get a chance to go to Paris again this year.

    • June 6, 2016 / 9:10 pm

    Yes, we’ve been to Paris and also Disney. Loved both! I’m so glad though that you decided to go without having to wait for a love-one. I blame it on the movies 😉

    • June 6, 2016 / 10:29 pm

    I’ve never been to Paris but I’d love to go sometime in my lifetime. When we go to Disney, we go to Orlando, Florida because it’s the closest state to us.

    • June 6, 2016 / 10:28 pm
