I have a 7 hour layover in Paris (CDG), and was wondering if this is enough time to visit a few city sites? has anyone had this experience, and what would you recommend? I know i dont have enough time for the Louvre, but i think i could hit the eiffel tower? thanks for all responses.

7 hours is enough for a quick trip into town. To see the Louvre properly requires at least half a day in itself - you could probably spend days there - give it a miss and save it for another time. You could see the Eiffel Tower, and the Arc de Triomphe is close by. Also, be sure to wander up Monmartre to the Sacre Coeur for a great view across Paris. If you want to see some art, a couple of really good small museums are the Musee Picasso, and the Musee Rodin, both dedicated to the artists they are named after, you could visit either for an hour or so and see them fairly thoroughly.
