Hi Ashish,

I would recommend you to start going to the "Montparnasse Tower", from here you'll get an amazing view over the whole city, ve able to recognize the highlights from afar and understand the distances between them.
Next I would go to see where Paris was born; Ile de la Cité, visit the Cathedral of Notre Dame and finish your day with a nice wine and cheese at the Ile de St. Louis.
For another day I would recommend you to go visit the other highlights, maybe the Eiffel tower, go to the Arc de Triomphe and walk the Champs Elysees. I would make a break at "Angelina" to get a hot chocolate and an elegant snack or meal. If you still have energy I would go visit the Louvre which is just steps away. Wednesdays and Fridays night it is open until 9:30pm and there is many less people, so it is the best moment to go.
For another day would recommend you to explore the wonderful Opera Garnier, then go see the sealing of Galaries Lafayette department store and maybe get a French parfum there.
To finish a wonderful day I would take a tour in Montmartre area, visit the artists square "Place de Tertre" and enter the beautiful basilica "Sacre Coeur".
This is a nice area to have a nice wine and hang out with locals at "rue des Abbesses" or "rue Lepic".

If you have more time left I would recommend you to discover the area of "Le Marais" ad "St. Germain de Près". And of course if it is not too cold, try to do a night river cruise. Just lovely!!

Enjoy Paris!

Probably you two should explore the city, I would suggest you to go to the 3rd district, Le Marais, which is the area of art and fashion. There are a lot of shops, your girl would probably like it! And then you two can also check out the 10th where many cool bars are located. Just be really careful with your belongings :) have fun!

Hi. Then do not go to the big and famous art museums. Queues are long and you will lose a lot of time.
However, there are two museums which are a lot of fun and very interesting: ARTS et METIERS is one which is the inventions museum, so you can see from Robots till the first car ever made..
Museum of Chocolate. Has also a tasting part.
Apart from that Paris is wonderful to explore with various means ( segway, boats, bikes etc), visit nice shows ( Cabaret) and of course eat and drink.
Naturaly, visit Disneyland and Park Asterix are two unique experiences...

regards, savas
