19 Things to Do

19. Indulge at a Great Wine Bar

It’s no mystery that the libation of choice in France is the nectar of the gods: wine. When I was in Paris, I found a small interesting wine bar known as Chez Nous and fell in love with it. Why?

First of all, they don’t feature a menu. You tell the waiters what you’re looking for and your budget and they go to work. They have a great wine selection and plates that will make your taste buds come alive. The food and wine are from all over, not just France, which makes for a very eclectic sit-down.

You may be a wine connoisseur or new to the world of wine—either way, this is a great option. They’ll walk you through couture wine options, which could turn you onto a new producer you hadn’t heard about. I consider myself a wine snob and was shocked when I did not recognize the three wines we tried, which is the way I like it!

18. Visit the Palais Garnier Opera House

Garnier Opera House in Paris, France

Paris’ opera house is an awe-inspiring monument that is largely skipped over by tourists. Built during the mid to late 1800s, it isn’t hard to understand why this was the place to be seen at the height of its popularity. The interior of the opera house is filled with rich decoration and excessive ornamentation—think gold everywhere!

Guided and unguided tours are available, but if you really want to learn all the history of this amazing place, make sure to stick with a guide. Who knows, you might even catch a glimpse of the famous Phantom of the Opera.

17. Walk Through Place des Vosges in Le Marais

Place des Vosges is one of the most beautiful squares in Le Marais or even Paris. If you heard someone describe it as a, “small park completely enclosed by four walls of houses that look exactly the same as one another,” you may not really want to go there!

Obviously, you could describe it much better than that. They aren’t just houses that look exactly the same as one another, they’re some of the most beautiful buildings in all of Paris. If you happened into this square without knowing anything about it, you’d most definitely know you were somewhere special.

16. Visit the Beaches of Normandy

The beaches of Normandy and Pointe du Hoc bunker are synonymous with World War II and visiting them in-person puts things into perspective. The beaches are in no way “close” to Paris. Considering their importance, however, many people make the pilgrimage if they have an extra day in Paris.

It is around a 3 hour drive and there are lots of things to see along the way including some pretty amazing cider (beer) breweries. We offer a great full-day trip to the “D-Day” beaches of Normandy, which includes transportation and lunch. You’ll visit Omaha Beach, Utah Beach, Pointe du Hoc, and make a stop for cider! We also offer this as a private tour with an additional price tag!

15. Visit Daniel Buren’s Columns in Palais Royal

Ever heard Jack Johnson sing that famous line, “pave paradise and put up a parking lot.” Well, Paris must have an extended version, “after you put up a parking lot call a famous artist and make it a monumental modern art installation.”

Would a park full of trees be more beautiful? You decide when you go to Paris and visit Palais Royal. Inside there is a courtyard, free to enter, where you’ll find 260 marble-painted columns. It’s a cool site and definitely an interesting photo!

Paris is one place where you should definitely indulge in local cuisine. You might have heard people say that bread tastes better in France, and it’s not a myth. Food is the key to every culture and the French believe they know the key to food.

Their belief may or may not be true, but their passion for the culinary arts is unmistakable and definitely admirable. You can witness this for yourself in many ways, but we believe the best way is to join a food tour—and ours is the best!

Why? We have tested many food tours in Paris and most did not enter a single restaurant. Our food tour goes to 4 or more locations and includes a sit-down dinner, crepes (salty), and a wine and cheese bar, which is really cool! Not to mention it’s in the trendy Le Marais district of Paris! Take a look at out our Le Marais food tour in Paris. Also, check out our article on the best Patisserie in Paris.

While our Le Marais food tour does not go to a vegetable market, it does take you through most of the quintessential French dishes. Oysters, cheese, crepes, a hot entry, and more! Wine and champagne included!
