Sunset Before heading elsewhere, be sure to have the hot chocolate at the Angelina Paris café. If you get a chance, you should also walk and secure your lock on The Pont des Arts (Lock Key Bridge). You may notice a few cruisers on the Seine river and if interested, you should check out one of the ports and book a ride for yourself as well.
Night Do not leave Paris without watching the Eiffel Tower lit up with sparkle-like lights. It is beautiful and worth a few shots and videos.
Late Night If you are someone who likes fine dining restaurants and clubs, visit Matignon. This turns into a club at one point.

Day 3

Morning Be sure to check the weather. If it is a rainy day, then there is nothing better than visiting the La Vallee Village outlet mall. The outlet mall is comprised of only luxury brands. If you are looking to shop for non-luxury brands, visit Centre Commercial Val d'Europe which is a big shopping mall, connected to the outlet mall, that has many shops and restaurants. Believe us or not, you will end up spending an entire day here if you are a shopaholic. If you are looking to take a break fuel yourself with some food, check out the Italian place that is located in the mall.  The only way to get to La Vallee Village is by taking the RER A train.
Evening If you happen to return to the city before 6 pm, you may be able to squeeze in Catacombs.- check timings as it closes at 6 and plan this well out in advance by booking a slot and buying the tickets online.

Afternoon Sacre Couer and the Montmartre area - It may feel like a fleet of stairs but don't give up! The view is gorgeous and so is the church!

You can take the gondola back down in case you want to give your feet some rest.
Evening Visit Les Marais which is a nice area. Be sure to take a pit stop at the Merci store. There are lots of bars and restaurants here. If you like Mexican food, try the nachos at Distrito Francés Marais. If time permits, visit Place Des Vosges which is a nice area.
