Hi Arif,

Well, the Louvres museum is always busy, especially on weekends so I think you'd rather book online before, to avoid queing for hours. Google le Louvres, go to the official site and select English as language.
From there, click on Online tickets and Store under the Visit tab. Then selct the site you want to book your tickets from and bobby's your uncle!

Other suggestions for your visits are the church Notre-Dame-de-Paris , the Eiffel Tower, Montmartre, the Georges Pompidou centre, the Pere Lachaise cemetery, the Marais area . I could add more and more but you've got only 2 days.
Hope this helps

Thank a lot for ur response to my thread. just wanted to know one more things... Wht would be better for me, to buy a Paris Visite Pass for 1-3 zones or to take the T+ tickets(coupon of 10). I wanted to do Louvre and Eiffel in one day. Is it possible to do Louvre in the afternoon and then spend the evening n night at Eiffel. How far are these two from each other.
Any other suggestion u would like to give.

Arif

In my opinion the Paris visite pass would be better.
More expensive but worth it i think.
You never know when your ten tickets might get used up.

This probably sounds like a weird suggestion but the Sewer tour is worth doing in Paris. The sewage network in Paris was one of the first to be developed, and the tour contains some really interesting facts and historical information.

Sewer tour

Is this a guided walking tour or a bus tour. How long it lasts

Notre dame church is a must see.Also if you cross the bridge here you can find a lot of good/cheap places to eat in st micheal.
The world famous tower( who needs to name it) is also a must.Go to the top to see the most amazing views of this city or just have a walk around down below ( theres enough to see ).
You can visit le(la) bastille also hotel de ville ( both on the metro map ).
The thing with this city is theres so much to do and see that even if you had a month to spend there you would still find something new.
The first time i visited Paris i hated it and couldnt wait to leave.Since then ive visited a few times and even lived there for a couple of years.
Ive been to many European capitals but Paris is hard to beat.
I would say enjoy your trip and have a good time but i know you just will anyway.

It's a guided walking tour and you'll probably be down there for 1-2 hours depending on how long you spend reading the historical info after the tour and how long you can stand the smell! it sounds awful but its good honestly :)
