4 Days in Paris

Well, you know everything you need to know about the public transport system in Paris. Now, we can plan 4 days in Paris and how to spend it! There are a couple of things we focused on this planning post:

  • Focused on Zone 1 and Zone 2
  • Spend 4 full days in Paris without go/from airport to the city center
  • Already have accommodation in the city center
  • Focused Must-see landmarks and historical places
  • Not spent more than 3 hours on a place even if you need more
  • At least 2 attraction per day

First Day of the 4 Days in Paris

If you are ready to spend your 4 days in Paris lets start it! We’are starting day 1 with a bus tour around the city to have knowledge about the layout of Paris, lifestyle, avenues, street and more. I think taking a bus tour is the best way to have an idea about a city. You will see almost all of the important sports in the city and feel the atmosphere. I’m writing the bus tour based on the Big Bus Paris Hop On Hop Off Tour but details are the same more or less between other tours.

The red route tour is the most extensive line between all. It covers almost all of the most iconic landmarks and places in Paris. The tour starts at the Eiffel Tower and goes in turn, Champ de Mars, Opera Garnier, Louvre Museum, Pont Des Arts, Notre Dame, Musee D’Orsay, Champs-Elyses, Grand Palais and Trocadero.

Take the Red Route

The first bus will go at 09.15 from Eiffel Tower so you need to catch it. You can use the metro to go to the Eiffel Tower in the morning. Bir-Hakeim station of Metro Line 6 and Ecole Militaire station of Metro Line 8 are the closest ones to the Eiffel Tower. Another option to go to the Eiffel Tower is taking a RER C line and get off at the Champ de MarsTour Eiffel Station. Bus lines 42, 69, 72, 82 and 87 also passes very close to the Eiffel Tower.

Red route operates with 5 to 15 minutes of the interval which allows you to get off every stop and spend some to take photos and look around. If you get off every stop at the tour you will probably spend around 4 to 5 hours to finish the tour and get back to the Eiffel. Now you know the layout of the Paris and places where will you visit in the next couple of days.

Discover Paris with BigBus Tour
Each stop of the tour is a major touristic spot (Source).

If you go to the Paris between 1st December and 13th January you can take a Paris Night Tour around the city with Christmas Lights. You can see Paris Christmas Night Tour route. Paris Night Tour or Christmas Tour has the same route with the Red Route but the commentary of the tour will focus on the Christmas lighting and Paris more. Both ordinary red route and Paris Night Tour prices are the same, 27 Euros.

Eat at the Quartier Latin

You spend almost half of the day with the Big Bus Paris tour and probably get a little hungry 🙂 There are two really good places to eat some local and French specialized cuisines, Monmartre and Quartier Latin. I think that you should eat these two places on two separate days. On the first day you can go to the Latin Quarter because it is the top place among the visitors of Paris. Also, you can find extremely cheap places to eat. You can take the RER C line from Eiffel Tower to go to the Saint-Michel Notre-Dame station where is the starting point of the Quartier Latin. From the station, you can walk through the district and find a place to eat.

Notre-Dame Cathedral

You can finish the day with this iconic landmark of Paris. Notre-Dame Cathedral is dedicated to the Virgin Mary and one of the oldest Gothic Cathedrals in the world and also the one the well-know all along with the world. It is not possible to get inside of the Notre-Dame Cathedral due to fire happened on 15-16 April 2019. Even though you can go there say pay your respect to this magnificent holy place of the Christian world.

Notre-Dame Cathedral is only 5 minutes walk from the Saint-Michel Notre-Dame metro station where is also the RER Line C station. You can also visit the Maison Heloise et Abelard, Pont Saint-Louis, Bridge of the Archbishopric, Fondation Louis Lepine, Sainte Chapelle, Conciergerie and Pont Neuf here. You can spend a couple of more hours here before getting back to the hotel. I think that this will be enough for the first. You need an energy for the day 2 🙂

Second Day of the 4 Days in Paris

You can start with the Eiffel Tower on the 2nd day of your 4 days in Paris. You can read the Eiffel Tower post we published before to have extensive information about the tower. My first suggestion about visiting the Eiffel Tower, buy your tickets in advance to avoid long queues and gain time. You can also eat your lunch at the restaurant in the Eiffel Tower. You already know how to go to the Eiffel Tower, right?

Don’t forget to buy your tickets in advance to avoid the queues (Source).

There are different types of tickets to visit the Eiffel Tower. Generally, prices are separated based on if you want to go to the top or satisfied with the second floor. To have a full Eiffel Tower experience you need to pay 52 Euro. Generally, if you buy this ticket you need to spend up to 3 hours to have a full experience.

Visiting Louvre Museum

After spending your time until noon, now it is time to go to the Louvre Museum. This world-famous museum opened at the end of the 18th century (1793). Louvre Museum is also France’s most renowned and visited museum. Every year, more than 8 million people visit the Louvre Museum. During years Louvre Museum became to hold more and more works of art. You can see the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci, Liberty Leading the People by Eugène Delacroix, The Wedding at Cana by Paolo Veronese, Venus de Milo an ancient Greek statue, Seated Scribe an ancient Egyptian sculpture, Winged Victory of Samothrace a Hellenistic sculpture and also lots of great artifacts of the human history.

Louvre Museum of Paris
Buy your tickets for Louvre Museum in advance to avoid queues like Eiffel Tower (Source).

Closest metro station to go to the Louvre Museum is Palais-Royal – Musee du Louvre station of metro line 1 and 7. Also Bus lines 21, 24, 27, 39, 48, 68, 69, 72, 81 and 95 are passed close to the museum. Like Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum has different types of tickets for its visitors. You can buy your tickets in advance online for 17 Euros per adult. There is also little expensive tour Skip the Line Louvre Museum Guided Tour for 59 Euros per adult. This tour will take around 3 hours to finish. Visiting Eiffel Tower and Louvre Museum will exhaust you and not need to visit another place for the 2nd day at your 4 days in Paris.

Third Day of the 4 Days in Paris

We will start the 3rd day of your 4 days in Paris by visiting the Montmartre. Basically, Montmartre is a hill with 130 meters of height. This place is one of the most colorful, unique and charming places in Paris. Montmartre was an independent commune just located very close to the Paris city center until 1860. But then it became the 18 districts of Paris. For visitors, Montmartre can be divided into two separate zones. One the near Place Pigalle with its numerous neon lights, cabarets, and sex-shops. The second is a bohemian face of the Montmartre located in the Place du Tertre at the top of the hill. You can reach to summit of the by taking 197 steps of stairs or taking the Montmartre Funicular. You can go to Montmartre by taking metro lines 2 and 12. There are multiple stops of these lines around the Montmartre.

Streets of Montmarte
The streets of Montmarte are very colorful (Source).

Sacred Heart Basilica of Montmartre

At the top of the Montmartre hill, there is a Sacred Heart Basilica of Montmartre (Sacre-Coeur). This place also knowns as a Basilique du Sacré-Coeur and one of the most important religious buildings in Paris. Sacre-Coeur also offers a great panoramic view of the city. This religious landmark constructed between 1875 and1914. Visitors can climb to the top of the dome. you can see important landmarks of Paris like Eiffel Tower and Arc du Triomphe. Luckily there is no entry fee for this magnificent place. You can also have your lunch at Montmartre. This neighborhood is just like the Latin Quarter to have good French cuisine.

Sacred Heart Basilica of Montmartre
Sacred Heart Basilica of Montmartre opens between 06.00 to 22.30 every day (Source).

Arc de Triomphe

Now, it is time to go to the emblematic symbol of Paris. Arc de Triomphe represents the numerous victories of the French army under Napoleon. To go to the Arc de Triomphe from Montmartre you can take the metro line 2 and get off the Ternes station where is very close to the Arc de Triomphe. This unique landmark of Paris is 50 meters tall, 45 meters wide and 22 meters deep. Arc de Triomphe built by Napoleon in 1806 at the end of the battle of Austerlitz and inaugurated by King Louis-Philippe.

Arc de Triomphe of Paris
To get to the base of the Arc du Triomphe you will have to take the underpass on the Champs-Élysées (Source).

This unique building witnessed Paris history during The Great War (WWI) and World War II. Parades after the world wars held here in 1919 and 1944. If you want to base the Arc de Triomphe always use the underpasses! Because there no traffic light over the roundabout and it will be extremely dangerous to pass it. If you want to get up the observation deck of the landmark you need to pay for it. It may not be worth it if you get up to the Eiffel Tower, so don’t spend extra money here. But if you still want to go to the top you have to pay 12 Euros per adult. 1 hour will be enough to experience the Arc de Triomphe.


Before finishing the 3rd day of your 4 days in Paris it is time to see the Champs-Élysées. You can just enter the Champs-Élysées from Arc de Triomphe. I’m suggesting to take this walk until you reach the Place de la Concorde where is very close to the Louvre Museum. Champs-Élysées is the most beautiful, famous and well-known avenue in Paris. Champs-Élysées is also the world’s most famous commercial street.

Champs-Élysées from Place de la Concorde
Taking a walk like this will certainly have a calming effect (Source).

During your walk through the Champs-Élysées, you can also visit the Palais de la Découverte (Discovery Palace), the Petit Palais and the Grand Palais. You can also have your lunch at one of the restaurants over the Champs-Élysées. This walk will take around 2 to 3 hours if you visit the imposing building over the avenue. There are multiple metro stations over the avenue if you want to go back to your hotel or elsewhere. I think this can be the last attraction of your 3rd day in your 4 days in Paris.

Fourth Day of the 4 Days in Paris

Welcome to your last day in your 4 days in Paris. For the last day, it is time to visit the Palace of Versailles and The Pantheon. The Pantheon was the first major monument of Paris. It was built long before the other major ones like Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe. This unique building constructed between 1764 and 1790 and designed by Jean Baptiste Rondelet. During the 19th century, The Pantheon used as a religious building. The building can be divided into two sections.

The first one is the interior of the mausoleum where you experience the size and decoration of The Pantheon. The second part of the building is the crypt. The crypt contains the iconic French citizens like as Voltaire, Rousseau, Victor Hugo, Marie Curie, Louis Braille, Jean Monnet, and Alejandro Dumas. Also, don’t forget to take look to the statue of Jean Jack Rousseau just outside of the Pantheon.

Inside of the Pantheon is incredible

Incredible Pantheon

The Pantheon is open except the 1st of January from 10.00 to 18.00 pm, from 1st April to 30th September to 18.30. There are multiple ways to go to The pantheon by using public transport. You need to take the metro line 10 and get off at the Cardinal Lemoine station. Also, the Luxembourg station of RER B line is very close to the Pantheon. If you want to use the buses of Paris you need to take one of the buses of lines 21, 27, 38, 82, 84, 85 or 89. Ticket prices of the Pantheon for one adult is 9 Euros.

Palace of Versailles

Before finishing the 4 days in Paris, the Palace of Versailles is the true ending spot. To go to the Palace of Versailles from The Pantheon you need to take the RER C line. Even with RER C line, it will take around an hour to reach the palace. Visiting the Palace of Versailles will take all day but you can spend the rest of the day after the Pantheon. The Palace of Versailles brings together the history and culture of the French nation into one. Because of its unique properties, the Palace of Versailles is one of the most popular destinations of Paris.
