We had lunch up the Eiffel Tower which was lovely, you get to skip all the people queuing and go through a special entereance. Worth trying, we even got a window table. Not as pricy as you would think either. Also you can got up at night and have dinner, which is a bit pricier. We then got a boat from right outside to go back down to Nortre Dame area.

I think you would have to book it though- check the web site, it has the number to call. On Saturdays and Sundays there are lots of little neighbourhood markets which are great fun to explore. Avoid the Champs Elysee on Sunday afternoons, it is very busy and not very exciting, full of cinemas and folks queuing up to get in. Don't know what it is like on other days. Some huge dept stores to explore and you get a good view if you go up onto the rooftops of Galleries Lafayette. And take a look at the domed ceiling in their makeup dept.

Y have you been before?

MrsGordonRamsay Wed 29-Jun-05 19:00:23

Yes but it was a hens weekend so dont ask me to remember too much about it.

The Muse Dorsay is lovely and the best tip I was given was to go to the top and work your way down, that way you are doing a sponsored shuffle with every one else.

We went on one of the river boats, DH slept most of the time and I got uptight due to large party of English school kids who manage to sit on every part of the boat . I found it a bit boring and prefered to explore the streets on foot and happily got lost every day.

MUST do a night river trip on the sienne - pre- or proceeded with a crepe from near the eiffel tower. Notre Dame is so cool, the Musee D'Orsay is amazing, so is the L'Orangerie which is close to the entrance of the Louvre and has the Monet Waterlilies... Anyway, have a great time - we're going to be going in August and it will be my hubby and ds's first time.

We went for a day on the way back from our holidays and did the Eiffel Tower. I think it was about 12 euros for an adult and 7 or 8 for a child. Extremely busy and be prepared to be in a massive queue shuffling round going from one floor's lift to the next.

Did the river trip in the evening which was fun and will definately go back without the children to explore the real Paris.

Champs Elysee was boarded up and a bit of a disappointment.
