Paris, the City of Love, is one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. With its rich history, iconic landmarks, and unrivaled cuisine, it’s no surprise that millions of visitors flock to this city every year.

Our family visited Paris during the summer for four nights and had an incredible time. Four days in Paris is the perfect amount of time to spend in the city if you’re planning on visiting other destinations in France or Europe.

We’ve put together a comprehensive 4-day Paris itinerary to help you make the most of your time in the City of Lights. Our itinerary for Paris is the perfect mix of top attractions and Parisian life experiences.

Day 1: Montparnasse to The River Seine

This was our easy first day in Paris, combining some star attractions with neighborhood wanderings and cafe people watching.

9:45am: Catacombs of Paris

The Paris Catacombs are a series of underground ossuaries that hold the remains of more than six million people. Each of their graves is placed in the rock walls inside the tunnel network.

11:30am: Montparnasse Tower

At 210 meters tall, the Montparnasse Tower is the tallest building in Paris. It features an outdoor observatory deck on the 56th floor that provides stunning panoramic views of Paris, including, the Eiffel Tower.

12:30pm: Lunch at Montparnasse Cafe

Parisian café life is something to indulge in and the pretty the exterior the better, so we were thrilled to sit at a table outside under the warmth of the sun, surrounded by floral love, eating our first delicious French meal.

1:00pm: Jardin Du Luxembourg

The gardens boast over a hundred statues, fountains, and monuments, each adding a touch of grandeur to the already captivating scenery (which also includes an orchard!)
