Paris: First day advice?

linus1973 | Oct 10, 2011 09:17 AM

I am heading to Paris Thursday evening with my 11-year-old daughter and classic, ageless, mother in law. :) We probably will get to our hotel in Vincennes by about 2, and I know I will be way too antsy to hang around Vicennes on the first day.

So I am thinking about taking the metro into Paris, doing a short walking chocolate tour, and then doing dinner. I have never been to Paris, so I really know nothing. Very little French, very little about prices, and very little about the city.

This is the walk I was thinking we'd do:


And then I think we'd probably like a lively bistro, moderately priced (less than 30 euros per person, hopefully) nearby.

My questions: Will we be too full after walking around eating chocolate to want to eat dinner? How expensive will the chocolate be? And does anyone have advice on a good restaurant to try?

Thanks for your help! I will report back when we return.
