It took me multiple visits to Paris before I finally made it to Saint Chapelle. Now I urge everyone to make it a priority on their trip to Paris! This is a relatively small chapel that is not too far from Notre Dame, but the interior, which consists of almost floor to ceiling stained glass, is absolutely outstanding. It will definitely take your breath away. The 13th century Saint Chapelle is quite popular, and the small size and mandatory security checks mean that the line to get in can be long.
This is why I have put it on my list as the first thing for your second day in Paris — you want to get here early, ideally get in line ten — fifteen minutes before the opening time. After all, no-one wants to spend their time standing in lines. You will definitely see two out of those three when you visit Notre Dame , the major Catholic cathedral in Paris.
Construction of this magnificent building took nearly two hundred years, and was completed in Entry to Notre Dame is free, although you do have to go through security, and lines are sometimes long. If you wish to go up the tower or into the crypt, there is a fee for those activities included with the Paris Pass , and you need to book a timeslot in advance. You can book this time slot on site at the ticket terminals. This starts accepting time slot reservations every day from 7.
The cathedral will be closed for the foreseeable future as a result of this tragic incident. If you like museums, Paris has definitely gotten you covered. The Louvre see below , covers the time period before this, whilst the Centre Pompidou covers the time period afterwards, right up to the modern day. If you only visit one museum in Paris, I can highly recommend making it the Louvre. Obviously, seeing the Mona Lisa is on the wishlist for many visitors, but this museum, which covers art from ancient times up to the middle of the 19th century, has obviously got a great deal more to offer.
True art lovers could lose themselves for days in the vast collection here! Note that in the busy times, which tend to be the summer periods especially, the Louvre gets very busy. In summer , there were multiple days when the museum actually sold out, and only holders of advance purchase tickets or timed reservations were able to enter the museum. If you have a Paris Pass or Paris Museum Pass , you can reserve your entry online on the official website.
This is mandatory for holders of these passes in order to guarantee entry, and we highly recommend you do this in advance. If you do not reserve your slot in advance, you are not guaranteed entry even with the pass. If you do not have a pass, you can buy your ticket and reserve your entry time online on the official website here. If there is no availability on the official website, you still have options.
We have had luck buying tickets via GetYourGuide here , these tickets come from a different allocation pool. Whichever ticket you buy, you will still have to queue for security, but the fast track line is a lot quicker moving than the general admission line. In addition, when the Louvre sells out on its official website, tickets will usually not be sold on site, so you may not be able to just turn up and queue — only holders of advance tickets will be given entry. Note the Louvre is closed on Tuesdays.

When you think of France, a few things likely come to mind, and I suspect that wine is likely one of them. So why not take a break from the sight-seeing and museums, and indulge in a little wine tasting. Which you get to drink. The tour is set in an actual 18th century wine cellar which originally housed the wine collection of the French King.

Not a bad setting to learn about French wine we think! The tour is available either self-guided with an app in which case you get a free bottle of wine to go , or you can opt to do the tour with a guide. We can recommend afternoon tea at Le Meurice , the Ritz or the Hotel de Crillon if you like afternoon tea see our guide to the best afternoon tea in Paris if so.
For a shorter and less expensive experience, the hot chocolate at Angelina Cafe is also superb. The Arc de Triomphe, built in memory of those who died in the French Revolution and Napoloenic Wars, is wonderfully photogenic. If you arrive in time, you can go to the top for an excellent view of the city, which includes the roads spanning out into the distance and the Eiffel Tower.
As you journey up into the monument, you will also come to a museum which details some of its history. Below the monument, you will also find the tomb of the unknown soldier. Head to one of the underpasses, and cross in safety. Going up inside the Arc de Triomphe carries a fee, holders of the Paris Pass get free access with skip the line privileges.
The really nice things about having 3 days in Paris is that you have the flexibility to go a little further out of the centre.
Bonjour Paris: The Bonjour City Map-Guides
My suggestion for your third day is to visit Versailles , the incredible palace that was the seat of French political power and home to French Royalty, including Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. To truly appreciate Versailles, I would suggest allocating at least half a day of your third day in Paris, if not more. We suggest starting off by touring the Palace.
Once you have toured the Palace and seen such highlights as the incredible Hall of Mirrors and the Kings Grand Apartments, you can head outside, where there is a great deal more to see. A walk in the incredible and vast! Fast-track entry to the Palace, Gardens and other Versailles attractions is included on the Paris Pass — although you will still need to join the security line.
We saw a number of people trying to use this travel card to get through the ticket barriers with no luck. The Paris Pass travel card only covers zones of Paris, which is sufficient for everything else on this itinerary, but not for Versailles which is in Zone 4. So you need to buy a ticket separately for your train journey — these are available from ticket machines at all the train stations, and these have and English language option available.
If you manage to tear yourself away from Versailles, my suggestion for finishing off your last day in Paris is to head to the Montmartre region. This area of Paris was particularly famous as being home to artists, and folks like Dali, Picasso and Hemingway all either lived or frequented this area. Fans of Dali will also want to visit the Dali Exhibition , home of the largest collection of works by Dali in France.
Montmartre is a maze of cute little streets, cafes and shops.

The Basilica is free to visit, if you get here in time, although there is a small fee if you want to climb the tower. Montmartre is also a popular place to watch the sunset across the city, and what better way to finish your 3 days in Paris than by watching the sun set across this magical city from atop Montmartre? You can access this on Google Maps here. As you would expect from a major European capital city, Paris has no shortage of options when it comes to accommodation.
How to get there ?
Ideally you want to be fairly central if you can, to minimise your travel time. Our suggestion is to take a look at the listings for Paris on booking. They also have everything, from apartments and hostels to high end hotels. Here are some options we suggest, depending on your budget.
We also use and recommend AirBnB when travelling. See all their listings for Paris here. Of course, there are lots of other options when it comes to finding accommodation when you travel. Check out our travel resources page for some of our favourites. We also love Fall and Spring in the city, when the temperatures are a bit cooler and the crowds less.
In the run up to Christmas, the city is beautifully decorated and some of the stores in particular are worth visiting just to see the elaborate decorations they put up. After Christmas the city is a lot quieter, and of course temperatures are at their lowest. As the capital of France, Paris has multiple options for visitors looking to visit.
There are three major airports in Paris. Charles de Gaulle is the main airport for international arrivals, with Paris Orly being the second most popular international airport. Both of these airports are easily reachable by public transport from the city centre. Paris Beauvais-Tille airport is where you will likely arrive if you are flying with a budget airline.
This is some way out of the city centre, but regular shuttles buses are available to take you into the city. Paris is also connected to the high speed French and European rail network, and there are a number of train stations in central Paris.
Fun walking tours of Paris
You can even travel from the UK by train, taking the channel tunnel to do so. Finally, of course, you can reach Paris by car from France and the rest of Europe. Our advice would be to park your car in a secure long stay car-park on the outskirts of Paris and take public transport to the centre. We recommend against driving in the city centre, as public transport is cheap and fast, and a lot easier than stressing about driving around the crowded city streets, and trying to find a parking space. Paris has an excellent public transport network, and in particular the Paris Metro system is really good, getting you around all the major parts of the city at minimum cost.
These are available at train and metro stations using the ticket machines. These machines accept both credit cards and cash, and can be configured for English language. Each ticket can be used for a single journey of up to 2 hours on the metro including transfers and 90 minutes on buses including transfers. For more information on these tickets, see the official page.

We suggest that you purchase them in packs of 10, which is much more cost effective than buying them individually. Alternatively, if you buy a Paris Pass, this come with a travel card which is valid for the duration of the Pass. So if you buy a 3 Day Paris Pass , it will come with a three day travel card.
This will cover you for all your travel in Paris within Zone , so will get you nearly everywhere you need to go.
