Product Description

See Paris like a local with this 3-day itinerary.

If you're a newcomer to Paris and are looking to make the most of your three days in the City of Lights, or if you're a long-time Paris-lover trying to find some secret spots on foot, this itinerary is for you!

Over the course of your three day walking tour itinerary, you'll discover several famous sites and museums, including the home of Monet's water lilies, Napoleon's tomb, the Arc de Triomphe and, of course, the Eiffel Tower. However, you'll also be offered some secret spots from a Paris local, including:
** Great restaurants that are off the beaten track,
** A local Paris food market,
** A hidden church in the north of the city,
** Great (and often inexpensive!) Paris shopping,
** Much more!

Paris is a great city for walking, and this guide is written with helpful maps that allow you to get the most of the city. Of course, there is always the option to take public transportation, something that is clearly marked over the course of the itinerary, but if you're looking to explore Paris on foot and discover some of her secrets on your own, look no further.

This guide includes several 1-3 hour walking tour itineraries, complete with options for shopping and food, of the following areas:
** The Latin Quarter and the banks of the Seine
** Saint-Germain-des-Près
** Batignolles
** Montmartre
** Buttes-Chaumont
** the Marais

The goal of this itinerary is to allow you to see Paris like a local -- on foot! We've also included other cultural ideas and ways for you to feel more like a true Parisian, such as:
** participating in the French traditions of apéritif and digestif
** shopping options that won't leave you broke... or with the same things that everyone buys in Paris
** restaurants where the menus are in French, the waiters are French, and the other customers are French
** beautiful residential neighborhoods to wander
** tons of local tips to leave you feeling informed along the way!

Below, you'll find a sample of the 3-day itinerary. The actual document will contain photos and maps.

=====================
Notre Dame – 9:30am – 11:00am
Price: Free
Duration: 1.5 hours
Hours: 8:00am – 6:45pm (weekends until 7:15pm)
Address: 6, parvis Notre-Dame

The Cathedral of Notre-Dame is one of Paris' most visited monuments... probably because it's free! The church, built in 1163, is famous for its Rose Windows as well as its gargoyles, a key element in Victor Hugo's masterpiece, Notre-Dame de Paris, or The Hunchback of Notre-Dame.

Religious scholars (or former Catholic school students) will recognize Bible and religious stories inscribed all over the interior and exterior walls of the cathedral. A few to note: the assumption of Mary into Heaven over the entrance on the far left; the statue of St-Denis, one of the patron saints of Paris, holding his own head sits below, the third statue in from the left. Inside, you'll find the famous Rose Windows, as well as the beautiful organs. A schedule of free concerts is available at the information booth by the entrance for those who would like to hear it played.
Local’s Tip: Be sure to stop in the chapel housing three to-scale replicas of the cathedral, at the eastern end of the cathedral (the furthest end from the entrance and exit doors): two were commissioned by the cathedral, and one was given as a gift by a gastroenterologist who makes to-scale models as a hobby.
Be sure to visit the outside of the cathedral as well: as you exit, turn left and walk through the park that runs along the side and rear of the cathedral.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great guide for a three day trip!! May 4 2012
By ROGER S METZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have visited Paris twice but feel I need to head back after reading this guide! I especially like the fact that the author has lived there for several years. Many other guides that I have used do not have a personal touch but this one certainly does. I liked the "local tips" and the notes on the restaurants. Simply reading the guide relaxed me and brought back memories of my visits. Great for those who have been there or about to go. I hope the author adds on to this with an extended guide. Very handy to have on my Kindle for when I visit again!!

Great guide that really took the pain out of planning for me. Saved a lot of time in going to one part of the city, then all over the other side to see something else. Highly recommended.

This guide gives you a chance to see a Paris that you might have missed before. I love the hidden places that Emily tells you about as well as the local tips and the feeling that I am being given my own private tour. I hope there is going to be more of this sort of guide - both for Paris and the other parts of France!

We can hardly wait to have our "April in Paris" this Spring and to follow this guide book for our stay. The guide is written simply and clearly with clearly defined walks to memorable places. We are especially excited to try the recommended restaurants and cafes. Thanks for an insightful and easy to follow guide.
