Five More Things To Add To Your Paris List

Paris is no doubt a hot spot for many holidayers, and there’s always the typical things to see while in a certain destination. The Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, and a trip on the Seine River are likely to already be on your list for your trip to Paris. What else can you add? Here’s some other ideas to enhance your Paris holiday.

Marche Aux Puces de Saint-Ouen

Shopping in Paris doesn’t have to mean you will be spending a million dollars. Thankfully there’s the Marche Aux Puces de Saint-Ouen, the world’s largest and super famous flea market. This market is over 150 years old and it’s been around this long for good reason. There’s tons of treasures waiting here for you to pick up, and again, it’s not going to cost you an arm and leg. Bring home your little French gems for a steal.

Disney

That’s right. Disney! Did you think Disney was only in the USA? Think again, Disney World in Paris is a totally different ball game. Here you can get your Disneyland Paris Tickets for a great price and see this magical world in an equally magical city. All your favorite characters, tons of thrilling rides, good food and entertainment for everyone, this is the perfect spot for any family while they are in Paris.

Ancient Roman Architecture

No, we’re not trying to send you to Rome, Italy. Stay right here in Paris and get your dose of Rome. There’s remnants of ancient Roman architecture dotted throughout the entire city and it’s impressive to say the least. There’s the Roman Bath of Cluny, some of the most appealing examples of these historical remains in the city. As you pass by Notre Dame, which will likely be on your list, take a stop at the close by Archeological Crypt of the center of Lutetia. You will be roaming around an old Roman city right in the Parisian streets!

Musee D’Orsay

So you’re interested in architecture and art? Well this is the place to go. Of course the Louvre will provide some impressive pieces of art, but here’s another choice to put on your museum endeavors. The Musee D’Orsay offers its visitors a variable collection of famous art work ranging from Manet, Monet, to Van Gogh and Gauguin. There’s guided tours of this great art center, and even a huge old railway running through it too.

School Yourself

Another unique thing to do while in Paris is go to school. Wait! Don’t stop reading yet, hear us out. We know nobody wants to go to school on their holiday, but this is a class you will be truly enjoying. There’s nothing like making memories that go beyond seeing things and taking picture. Take a class of your choice and bring a skill home from Paris. Photography, art, cooking, you name it. Classes for many skills are available right here in Paris and it would be a great experience and skill to share with everyone back home.

    I *love* the sound of going shopping in the flea market – though it seems to have the longest name in the world so will take some learning! It sounds like a great place to do your souvenir shopping and get some truly unique momento’s.
