WHERE IS PARIS & HOW TO GET THERE

Paris is the capital city of France located in the very north of the country. The population of Paris is 2.1 million.

The two most common ways of reaching Paris is by plane or train.

By Plane: Paris International Airport is very well connected with daily flights available from anywhere in Europe and also international arrivals from the UAE and Asia. I always use SkyScanner to search and book all of my flights as they generally have the cheapest rates.

By Train: Arriving in Paris by train is the next best option of reaching the City of Love in France. Daily trains operate in and out of Paris Train Station, connecting Paris from other major countries in Europe such as Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany and the United Kingdom to name a few.

Travelling around Europe by train is one of the best ways to get around at an affordable cost. I highly recommend purchasing a Eurail Pass to make the most out of your Europe trip. There are many different passes available which give you access to the majority of trains, buses and boats within 31 countries in Europe!

PARIS IN 2 DAYS – THE PERFECT PARIS ITINERARY

DAY 1: PARIS ITINERARY

THE EIFFEL TOWER

The Eiffel Tower should be at the top of everyone’s Paris Itinerary! This historic landmark is one of the most famous destinations known throughout the entire world. Built in the 19th century, the Eiffel Tower is a staggering 324 meters tall and dominates Paris’s skyline, making it visible from almost everywhere in the city.

The best views of the Eiffel Tower, in my opinion, are from behind Tour Eiffel in Park Champ de Mars or from across the Seine River in Park Jardins du Trocadero. Both are equally magnificent locations to find a spot to perch up with a picnic, complimented with a bottle of wine and marvel at the incredible Eiffel Tower.

Another one of the best places to visit in Paris in 2 days is inside the Eiffel Tower itself! Take an elevator ride or climb the stairs to one of three floors inside the Eiffel Tower, each offering expansive panoramic views of the city! I highly recommend booking your ticket online to skip the queue!

NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL

The next big attraction to tick off the list on your Paris itinerary is the famous Notre Dame Cathedral, especially if you are huge fans of the Disney movie, The Hunchback of Notre Dame!

Notre Dame de Paris is a medieval cathedral that is considered to be a perfect example of French Gothic architecture that dates back to the 13th century.

Unfortunately, the Notre Dame Cathedral has partially burnt down in a recent fire (April 2019) and is undergoing renovations. Nonetheless, it is one of the best places to visit in Paris in 2 days!

Entrance Fee: Admission to Notre Dame is free, however, if you wish to enter the tower the cost is €8.50.

PARIS CRUISE ON THE SEINE RIVER AT SUNSET

What better way to finish your first day in Paris than onboard a Paris Cruise along the Seine River at sunset! This was one of my favourite things to do in Paris in two days as these short cruises are perfect for getting a different perspective of Paris’s main attractions including the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Musee d’Orsay, Notre Dame Cathedral and more!

There are many different Paris Cruise companies that operate on the Seine River, offering cruises day and night, some include food, some don’t, so it can be quite difficult and stressful when trying to organise a cruise once you have already arrived in Paris. To get the best rates and find a Paris Cruise that best suits your needs, I recommend booking online in advance.

DAY 2: PARIS ITINERARY

ARC DE TRIOMPHE

The Arc de Triomphe is the second most popular Paris attractions and it is easy to see why! This beautiful monument was built to honour those who fought for France in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, with the names of soldiers inscribed on its inner and outer walls.

The best time to visit the Arc de Triomphe is at sunrise or early morning before 9:00am when there is no traffic on the roads. You’ll be guaranteed to get a great picture then!

However, if you wish to go inside, the Arc de Triomphe entrance fee is €12 for those over the age of 18. The entrance fee for under 18-year-olds is free. Arc de Triomphe opening hours are Monday to Friday from 10:00am till 10:30pm.

THE LOUVRE

The Louvre, or the Louvre Museum, is the world’s largest art Museum and one of the best places to visit in Paris in two days! Its magnificent triangular architecture is a sight for sore eyes that one could marvel at for hours!

Louvre is commonly known for housing the most famous painting in the world! Any guesses? Yes, that’s right, the Mona Lisa which was painted by the one and only Leonardo Da Vinci back in the year 1503.

If you don’t get in early to visit the Louvre you can end up waiting for quite some time in a queue. To avoid having to wait in line, I recommend purchasing your Louvre Museum ticket online in advance which allows you to skip the queue on the day you plan to visit.

Click Here to book your Louvre Experience online and skip the queue!

The Louvre Opening Hours: 

  • Monday: 9 a.m.–6 p.m.
  • Tuesday: Closed.
  • Wednesday: 9 a.m.–9:45 p.m.

VISIT MONTMARTRE

Exploring the colourful streets of Montmartre is a must on your Paris itinerary which is why I have added it to my Paris travel blog! Montmartre is popular among visitors for getting lost in the twisting alleyways and wandering the hilly streets, admiring the quirkiness of this awesome neighbourhood!

Montmartre is filled with dozens of great cafes and souvenir shops for those last minute bargains! The best way to reach Montmartre is by taking the Metro line 2 to Anvers station and it’s a short 10-minute walk from there.

MONTMARTRE SINKING HOUSE

Last but not east on this two day Paris itinerary is the Montmartre Sinking Hosue! I am guessing you may or may not have heard of the Sinking House of Montmartre, either way, take my word for it and make sure to add it to your 2 day trip to Paris. Since a photo went viral on Instagram, the Montmartre Sinking House quickly became a hotspot to visit on most peoples Paris itinerary!

Now don’t panic, the house isn’t actually sinking, it is merely photography trickery and an optical illusion that makes it seem as though this quirky building is actually sinking into the earth.

The best way to get around Paris is by using the underground Metro. You can grab a day pass for €7.50 from any Metro station in Paris.

Paris city is also reasonably walkable if your legs aren’t painted on and if you have the time. I always recommend walking where possible as it’s a great way to see other cool and random places along the way.
