I don't know how you could work it in, but Rick would absolutely love to go to Paris for 2 days and to see Monet's garden. Mom

Monet's garden, the louvre, the Eiffel tower, Noter Dame all worth the visit.

When we went to the Louvre, we were there 9 hours and didn't see it all it would have taken us an additional 3 hours that we didn't have and we were moving. Napoleon's apartment is part of it, very ornate. I personally like the giant carved out marble bath tubs and famous paintings.
The Monet gardens we took the train from Paris, and then a bus, and then another bus. If you can drive there it's better because then you don't have to be on the buses schedule. But it's off the beaten path, and you want to bring food and beverages with you because there isn't much there.
The Eiffel tower views are amazing, the lines move quickly and it's can be crowded, you loose your stomach and feel it moving from the top,
The Noter Dame is classic we braved the long walk up to the bell tower it was a killer on the legs and feet, but we were younger then. It would be difficult with out IB and good walking shoes and good walking shape. The line is long.
You definitely have to have the croissants and coffee wow! Not good on a diet.
