DAY 1: Disneyland Paris
On the first day of this six-day Paris itinerary, we recommend you enjoy Disneyland Paris . To be able to fully enjoy the park, we recommend you stay in the surroundings of the park for two nights , that is, the night before the park and the night of the same day. This is ideal to be able to be at the attractions first thing in the morning and have the hotel close by in the evening to rest better. Remember that the closest airports to this area are Orly and Charles de Gaulle . It is essential that you choose one of these to get to Paris, as they are located closer to the park and are more comfortable regarding transfers . The night of this first day is advisable to spend it in the hotels in the park or in the surroundings to maximize the enjoyment in the park and thus be fresher to continue the route the next day.
DAY 2: Eiffel Tower, Les Invalides, Place Concorde And Champs-Elysées
The second day of the tour we will move from the accommodation in the surroundings of Disney to the center of Paris , where we can have the accommodation during the following days of the route.
