What city will you be talking about?
What’s the cheapest way to enjoy this city at night?
Walk along the Seine River, from La Bastille to Fontaine Saint Michel, one side or the other, at the street level or at the river level. Stop at Notre Dame and at the Shakespeare & Company, the famous little bookstore, and end at Fontaine Saint Michel, where you’ll find plenty of bars and lively nights on Rue Des Arts.
What’s your favorite restaurant here? What’s so special about it?
SOLA, a french-japanese restaurant on 12 rue de l’Hôtel Colbert, 75005.
It was worth the price. 7 course dinners with exquisite flavors and adornment. Decorated with elegant simplicity; and non-pretentious.
What’s your favorite thing to do on a warm Sunday morning in this city?
I loved bringing a book to Parc Monceau or to Luxemburg Gardens, and stayed in the grass, reading for hours. Sometimes, one can take an easy Sunday morning walk around either one of these beautiful parks.
What were some of the hidden gems in that city? Why?
1. Metro Stations.
Many of them are very interesting to look at because of their architectural value, art style, and -believe it not because of the length or depth of the stairs going down! :-).
My favorites: Art et Metiers, Cluny La Sorbonne, and Abbesses.
2. Amazing Parks
Parc Monceau is chic and so Luxemburg Gardens. Buttes Chaumont is unexpectedly beautiful.
3. Indian and Pakistani restaurants and stores between arrondissements 3 and 10.
4. The small bistros and bakeries found on neighborhoods outside of the main touristic area.
5. Small museums such as Musee de la Vie Romantique (Free), Mansion Balzac (Free) and The Dali Museum.
Anything else you want to add?
Paris can be amazing whether you are splurging or traveling on a budget. For those who like to explore cities out of the tourist path, take the metro to several of the 20 arrondissements. My favorites: 3, 10, 15 and 18.
When in Paris, you must go see an English comedy: How to Become Parisian in One Hour! Not only will you laugh at yourself and others, but you’ll actually get one hour of multicultural training, a la Parisien!
