My friend & I will have 2 1/2 free days in Paris this October after a River Cruise. What are our "must sees"? We don't mind walking but will take public transportation to see more things. Please help!

I didn't do many 'must-see' activities in Paris but spent my time walking around and eating. I really enjoyed the antiques district between the Orsay Museum and Boulevard Saint Germain. it's a great area to walk and we stumbled upon Androuet, a delicious cheese shop! Checkout my highlight here.

Honestly, I spent the entire time I was in Paris (5 days) just walking. It's my favorite way to see any new city, but especially Paris. There are so many must-sees that you just happen to stumble upon when you let your legs do all the work. That being said, I think anywhere with a view is a good call. Take you camera and take a shot and I guarantee you'll get at least four "must-see" monuments in one frame. It's incredible. I loved Sacre Coeur and the ferris wheel by the Louvre for these photo ops. I also recommend checking out the Crazy Horse (better than Moulin Rouge) for a fantastic cabaret in a fun part of town...
Have a great time!!
