If you only have 24 hours then I wouldn't do Versailles...it's a full day
trip to be even remotely worthwhile. If you're up for it physically, I
would just "WALK" and take in the sites. Take the metro to Ille de la Cite
and start at Notre Dame, see the inside of the cathedral but don't go up the
Towers unless the line is very short to non-existent, then walk over to St
Chapelle and DO go see the stained glass. From there, walk on over to the
Louvre, if you enjoy art, then take the walking tour (about 1-1.5 hours).
>From here, walk over to the Eiffel Tower, you can go up if that's something you want to do, again I'd gauge things by the lines. From there, walk along the Champs de Mars towards the Ecole Militaire and then hang a left and head over to Invalides and Napoleon's tomb. Nearby, is the Rodin Museum, a great experience, and they also have a nice outdoor cafe that you can enjoy a cold drink or coffee.
This should pretty much use up the best part of a day, you'll be tired, but (I think) happy.
