How to Spend your time in Paris in 2 days

If you want to see Paris in 2 days, you can make it! Here you will find how to do it, without missing the chance to visit the most important attractions of Paris. You can use this program also if you are in Paris for the weekend!

I won’t lie: two days are not a lot, but you can experience Paris anyway!!!

Paris in 2 days, what to do on Day 1

When you have just 2 days to visit Paris, I recommend going straight to the Tour Eiffel (Eiffel Tower).  If you don’t have a skip-the-line ticket, go to the Tower area anyway. You will still see one of the most important symbols of Paris and you will be in one of its most central areas.

In the proximity of the Eiffel Tower, you can take a walk along Champs-Elysees and Place de l’Etoile. There, you will see another symbol of the city: Arc de Triomphe.

A few steps away from Champs-Elysees there’s Place de la Concorde with two important buildings, Grand Palais and Petit Palais. You can visit them – they are both museums – or you can continue your walk on Alessandro the 3rd bridge.

Bridges are very typical architecture of Paris. They are places where you can enjoy special views.

After lunch, you can go to relax in one of the parks in Paris. I recommend going to the Tuileries Garden. It is huge and it is one of the garden masterpieces of the world.

Did you know that there is a music composition by Mussorgsky about Tuileries?

In the afternoon, you can continue your Paris in 2 days experience by going to iconic museums such as the Louvre or the Orsay. They are both very big so I do not program anything else for day 1.

Day 2 schedule

To begin day 2 when you are visiting Paris in 2 days I suggest going to Montmartre as first thing in the morning.

You can go there by funicular or by metro. You will spend the morning exploring a quarter that is famous for its authentic Parisian atmosphere. Just think that around Place du Tertre you will see lots of painters in the streets!

In the same area, you can visit one of the most beautiful churches in Paris, the Sacre-Coeur Cathedral. Plus, if you feel romantic, go also to Absesses metro station to see the love wall.

After visiting Montmartre, I suggest going to Le Marais, one of my favorite districts in the city. You can go there to have lunch or after lunch. In Le Marais, you can see Opéra of Paris and the Jewish quarter that is in the proximities of Place des Vosges.

Not far from le Marais, there is the Pompidou Center. If you love modern and contemporary art, you can’t miss the chance to visit it. I know that the time is not very much, so think about visiting just a temporary exhibition.

If you want, you can go from Le Marais to visit one of the Islands of the city, the Ile Saint-Louis. It is one of the natural islands on the Seine. From there, you can walk along the bridges of Paris.

Walk on an island in a big city is an experience you can’t miss!

In evening, you can take a walk in rue Soufflot. There you will see the Panthéon and the Luxembourg Gardens. Walking along the same road, you will arrive in Montparnasse. From that area, you can still see other attractions in Paris. You can go to the Latin Quarter or in rue Mouffetard, where you can surely eat something good.

If you follow this schedule, let me know if it was good for your Paris in 2 days experience!
