Category: One to 10 day stays

One to 10 day stays is the usual length of stay for tourists in Paris, with an average of between 3 and 5 days. That’s not much for what there is to see (around 2,200 points of interest), and an almost exhaustive visit would certainly take over a year. An “in-depth” visit to the Louvre alone would take about a month. So you have to choose, and that’s where the difficulties begin: how to make your selection so as to see the essential and typical things without tiring yourself too much.

One to 10 day stays” consiste of “programmed” a number of typical stays, each lasting 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 days, and meeting various overriding criteria: monuments, museums, shopping, a mix of the two, etc. These programs have been optimized to meet your needs. These programs are optimized to avoid your stay becoming a frantic race, but rather a balanced, not overloaded, schedule.
