Walk 1: The Traditional or Classic Paris Walk
This walk is designed so that you can see some of the most famous and iconic sights in the World. It's a long walk,
but it's very flat and there are many cafes and restaurants, where you can stop for a well deserved break.
The sequence in which you visit the individual landmarks will depend on your starting point, but if you want to
see many of the most famous sights in Paris, then this is a great itinerary.
Such a walk would include the following famous places, but don't expect to go into all of them on such an
introductory walk. You could spend several days in the Louvre by itself.
Starting at Notre Dame, you could walk as follows:
Hotel de Ville
Place de la Concorde
Alexander III Bridge
Arc de Triomphe
How long should you allow?
Perhaps 4 hours for a walk of 5 miles or 8 kilometres, obviously longer if you have breaks for
coffee or lunch.
