Bonjour! We just visited Paris, France, for the very first time. While I'll do a full download of our favorite food and activities soon, I thought an immediate and basic overview of our visit will be helpful to me in the future. Hopefully it will also be helpful for you!
Overall I LOVE love LOVED Paris and would and will go back again in a heartbeat. Our time there was not nearly long enough.
Length of Visit - 4 days. We arrived to Paris mid-day on a Saturday and left mid-day on a Wednesday.
Travelers - 2, my husband and I.
Flight - We got a great deal on a one-way flight, direct from Seattle to London.
Transportation from London to Paris - This was not as simple as we thought it would be. This is the downside of getting cheap airfare to a "nearby" city. Overall I wish I could just go back and book a quick flight from London to Paris!
Transportation, per person, from Seattle, through London, to Paris: $621 per person
Hotel - We loved Hotel Helussi, which is located in the 9th arrondissement of Paris (they've got a numbered system of naming neighborhoods). We stayed here, in a room with a balcony, for 4 nights. The total hotel cost was $741 (an average of $165 per night, prices vary based on the day), or $370.50 per person.

Scheduled Tours - Most of our tours were inspired by the Bucket List Family's visit to Paris.
Other Priority Items for us were -
I can't wait to share all of our Parisian adventures, and food, with you!
