I wouldn’t bother with Fontainebleau (I have been lots of times for work) the chateaux is pretty but if you have to chose I would skip it. 

I would focus your foody time outside Paris – a lots of restaurants you’ll go to there will be over priced and not that great. A few years ago the French launched a scheme where restaurants could display a symbol (a saucepan in a house) to show that their food is home cooked and not pre made / frozen. 

In Paris watch your bag! Especially in the tourist areas. Only carry the cash you need and keep things in zipped pockets.

Splurge for a nice meal at Monsieur Bleu.  Have a seat on the terrace and watch the sunset over the Eiffel Tower while dining on a delicious french meal 🙂

My favorite touristy spots were Sainte-Chappelle, Sacre-Couer, and Arc de Triomphe. IMO the view from the Arc de Triomphe is so much better than from the Eiffel Tower. If you have time, Versailles is so ridiculous…like amazingly tacky but the scale of everything really floored me. Now I want to go back!!
