Paris, often referred to as the City of Light, is one of the most popular cities in the world and is perfect for a weekend getaway.
From sightseeing to trying some of the finest food France has to offer to visiting galleries and museums, the options for activities in Paris are endless.
That said, if you don’t have any plans for your Paris trip, 2 days will soon fly by without you making the most of your time there if you’re not careful. If you’re only spending a couple of days in Paris and aren’t sure on how to best use your time, we’re here to help.
There are a number of things you can do in Paris in 2 days. These activities include, but are not limited to:
- Enjoying a picnic by the Eiffel Tower
- Booking a private sightseeing tour of the city
- Strolling through Jardin du Luxembourg
- Eating at Ladurée
- Wandering around Montmartre
1. Enjoying A Picnic By The Eiffel Tower
A must-do when you visit Paris for 2 days is to visit the Eiffel Tower, and what better excuse is there to have a picnic than to enjoy lunch whilst taking in one of the most iconic sights Paris has to offer?
If you want to see panoramic views of the city, you can purchase Eiffel Tower tickets to go up to the top for €18,10 per adult before or after your picnic. Otherwise, it’s the perfect activity to enjoy from the luscious grounds completely free of charge.
If you happen to be visiting during the autumn or winter, you’re better off visiting with a hot drink in hand, as it can get pretty chilly in Paris during the colder months.
2. Booking A Private Sightseeing Tour Of The City
With only 2 days to see as much as you can of Paris, the best way to tick off multiple sights in one go is to book a private sightseeing tour of the city.

3. Strolling Through Jardin du Luxembourg
If you’re looking for a slice of nature in the city, then a stroll through Jardin du Luxembourg is one of the most relaxing activities to do in Paris.
Known for its pruned flower beds and water fountains, enjoying a breath of fresh air on a sunny day in this garden is truly something special.
Whether you take a walk through Jardin du Luxembourg whilst sightseeing, or simply stop for an ice cream or lunch, the views are breathtaking and can be a welcomed break from the hustle and bustle of the city.
4. Eating At Ladurée
If you’re a fan of baked goods, another must-do when visiting Paris for 2 days is to eat at Ladurée, especially if you’re visiting for a special occasion.
From macarons to delicately decorated pastries, every baked good is nothing short of heavenly, and spending an afternoon in Ladurée is a sweet treat you won’t want to miss out on.
5. Wandering Around Montmartre
Last, but not least, ambling around Montmartre is an essential sightseeing stop to work into your trip to Paris.
Known for its wonderful art, bustling nightlife, and iconic cobblestone streets, Montmartre is home to some of the most iconic buildings in Paris and visiting is like stepping back in time.
From restaurants to shops to the famous Moulin Rouge cabaret, there’s something for everyone in Montmartre.
