    Perhaps it goes without saying, but since it hasn't been said: Hermes.
    Have a great adventure, a wonderful trip...

    Go from the bottom of the Catacombes to the top of Notre-Dame in one morning. Amazing contrast and history and great view of the city!

    Remember that service is included in your bill (you do not have to leave a 15% tip on top of that!). Also remember that the further out you sit on a "terrasse", the more you will pay. The cheapest is at the bar in the cafés! However, people watching on the Champs Elysées is interesting!!

    Have fun and I hope you have great weather! Paris in the spring time is wonderful!!

    I LOVED Notre Dame, which surprised me because I'm not terribly religious and I actually would have chosen not to go had it been up to me. But I found it absolutely fascinating and would love to go again. Versailles was also amazing but it takes a decent amount of time!

    YES YES YES!!! There is no other place to go but to the Musee Vivant du Cheval at Chantilly Palace if you are a horse person and even if you are not!!! We had a car. It is about an hour outside of Paris ( 40 km) but there is public transportation. This is a definite DO NOT MISS .
    The Living Museum of the Horse is a museum in Chantilly, France dedicated to equine art and culture. It is housed in the Great Stables of the Château de Chantilly, about 40 km north of Paris.
    Address: 7 Rue du Connétable, 60500 Chantilly, France
    Phone: 03 44 57 40 40

    I never even made it to the Palace ...the stables and stables museum are so fantastic.

Huge museum devoted to horses and horse stuff, a gorgeous chateau, lovely grounds. It's been years since I was there, but it was fantastic. Google it. You'll see. The day I was there a three day event was going on there, and we were lucky enough to be there on cross country day. The parking lot attendants were mounted, in 18th century riding attire..gorgeous.

    But do that on Tuesday, when the museums are closed!
