3 days in Paris: a short programme

Louise, a listener to the podcast, wrote to me a few days ago to ask if I had any recommendations for her.

She and her 16-year-old niece will be in Paris in July for three days.

Here are a few suggestions. You can also share yours in the comments.

A street in Paris

Three days goes by quickly, so I hope you make the most of them.

The Mona Lisa in the Louvre

- The Louvre, but choose the rooms you want to see in advance (for example, the antiquities, as your niece loves archaeology)

- The Musée d'Orsay in the same way (for the famous paintings)

- The Musée Carnavalet, the museum of the city of Paris (free, but you have to book online): there's a room in the basement devoted to archaeological discoveries in Paris.

La Seine

- Take a boat trip on the Seine. I like this company (

Promenades & Douceurs
Bread from Mamiche

- Take a walk from the Sacré Coeur and back down via the Mamiche bakery and the rue des Martyrs.

- Lunch at one of the Bouillon restaurants (


- Have a snack at Bo&Mie in Saint-Michel and walk to the Musée du Moyen Age (there are Roman remains visible from the outside), Jardin du Luxembourg, walk past the La Coop cheese shop (9 rue Corneille) and buy some cheese, eat a crêpe at Little Breizh (11 Rue Grégoire de Tours, 75006 Paris)

The Dehillerin shop

Also in the Halles district:

- stop off at Dehillerin

- go to rue Furstenberg in Saint-Germain des prés

- From the Opéra, go to the BNF Richelieu to see the magnificent Salle Ovale. Access is free and it's really very beautiful.

A pyramid of macaroons Ladurée

- Climb to the roof of Galeries Lafayette (view of the Opéra)

- Buy macaroons at Ladurée, rue Royale.
