May 04, 2014 - May 06, 2014

List editor:


Hi all, I will be in Paris next sunday and monday and I am looking for some off-the-beaten-path things to do. I have been to paris many times, so i am not too interested in the big sight seeing things, but more into the beautiful strolls, lovely boutiques, delicious restaurants, bars etcetera
We are staying in Montparnasse, but happy to travel all around if its worth it.

      @WayneAtherholt recommended Vieux Lyon
      Just two hours from Paris on the fantastic TGV this is well worth a visit for its food and architecture. I love Lyon. So much to see and do and it makes for a great side trip out of Paris.

      Pro 2014
      Leigh Virkus recommended Père-Lachaise Cemetery
      Be sure to spend at least a couple of hours in this beautiful "city of the dead". You could easily spend an entire day here, roaming this park-like setting with it varied array of elaborate monuments. ... read more
      There is nothing creepy about this place. Along with famous residents such as Jim Morrison, Edith Piaf, Moliere and countless others, regular Parisians rest here too.

      Not sure if you have been here. We enjoyed this place and with the shade it offers a great respite from the heat and busyness of the city.

    • Rue du Faubourg Saint-HonoréRue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, 75008 Paris, France
      Kostas Trivizas recommended Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré
      From grand hotels, to local bistros, to theme bars, to smart, elegant, luxury shops, boutiques you will find it all along and around that street.

      Costa Hotel for its Lounge and Bar around a courtyard and its own DJ CDs with lounge music since the late 90s, is a must visit.

    • Pain Vin Fromages3 Rue Geoffroy l'Angevin, 75004 Paris, France
      Pro 2014
      Julia P recommended Pain Vin Fromages
      If you want to have your cheese, and eat it too, in about 76 different ways, head to Pain Vin Fromages (Bread, Wine, Cheese). The sections of the menu include Fondue and Raclette. Cheese and meat ... read more
      plates from each area of France are listed on a cute little map, and the wine list includes some delicious bordeaux. Casual, friendly, with scope for some real gourmand pigging out a la francaise, it's definitely worth an evening and the 50 or so euro you'll spend a head.

      Hey Rosanne, I can give you a couple restaurants I've really enjoyed on recent trips!

    • Bar 33 rue de l'Ancienne Comedie 75006
      Katie Pierce recommended Bar 3
      Bar 3 was one of my favorite hang outs in Paris. It has a low ceiling basement with beautiful arches. It makes for a fun and different night out, if you're just planning to dance and have a drink or ... read more

      The crowd here may be younger and the spot a bit touristy, but I love the underground dance floors in Bar 3. I think they're quite fun and unusual.

    • Le Parc Monceau7 Bis Rue de Monceau, Paris, France
      Katie Pierce recommended Le Parc Monceau
      A dream garden! Some of my favorite photos from my 5 months living in Paris were taken here!

      This is one of my favorite parks to go to for picnics or just reading a book. It's quite beautiful and a nice little oasis from the city streets.

    • Heroines6 Rue Rosiers, 75004 Paris, France
      Katie Pierce recommended Heroines
      My best kept secret in Paris has now been revealed. Heroines is by far the best boutique in the entire city for fun and unique clothing. During my time living in Paris I could not even walk down Rue ... read more
      de Rosiers without stopping in and at least trying on 5 different things. I brought all my friends here and they easily became equally addicted. The swankiest and sexiest dress I own? I bought it here.

      This is one of my favorite shops in Paris. The clothes are adorable and I love this area too. Lots of good window shopping.
