Is Paris big?
If you have never been to Paris, you may be surprised at the extent of the city compared to other tourist cities where everything is relatively close on foot, like Rome or Barcelona. You can of course walk, but the metro will save you time! Try to organize your nights by neighborhood so you do not have to cross the city at high speed several times a day.

How many days does it take to go to Paris?
It depends ! It is very useful to schedule your visits before your departure, and to note the distances and the time needed to see everything you want.
