Paris!

We're off to Paris (hopefully) next Easter. There will be me, my partner and my DD(16). We're going for 5 nights and staying near the Eifell Tower. We want to visit the usual sites and hopefully we'll manage a day (or 2) at Disney.

I've heard it's best to book tickets for the main attractions, Eifell Tower, catacombs, Louvre etc, in advance. My DD would also like to visit the Opera Garnier. Where is the best place to get tickets for these?

We are also looking at Moulin Rouge but it is so expensive! Is it worth the money? Again, where is the best place to book tickets for this? And is it worth doing the dinner show or just going to the show?

Anything else that is an absolute must do?

TIA

Sorry canít help with the opera or moulin rouge, but try and visit Champs Elysees. We did visit Notre Dame which was amazing but that was before the fire. We also went to Musee díOrsay and the Pompidou Centre.

When DD and I visited I pre booked Eiffel Tower tickets in advance on their own site.
We also went up the Arc Du Triomphe lots of stairs , it didnít help that we visited during the 2017 heatwave :cool2 but we did it at dusk and had the most amazing view of the Eiffel Towers light show , so totally worth the climb 👍🏻

Ooh, thanks for the tip! Will definitely look in to that now!

I've made a Google map of all the places we want to visit, and eat, so we know what's close to each other and how much we could potentialy fit into a day. All these years of Disney planning are really paying off!

Are there any places where we absolutely have to eat? We have an extensive list already (of course) but always like to hear suggestions!

Also my DD(16) wants to go to an opera. Faust is on at the Opera Bastille while we're there (Carmen is on at the end of this year - she's gutted) so that might be something else to add to the list!

When it came to eating we were very relaxed , there are so many lovely small cafes where you can have a pastry/coffee for breakfast or sandwich for lunch. Dinner was eaten in small restaurants taken by judgment but thankfully we didnít get it wrong! Amazing pasta and freshly made pizzas were fab.
We enjoyed a cocktail or two on the Champs Elysees watching the world go by
