Paris General: 1,809 reviews and 2,160 photos
Favorite thing: Often people on the Forum will ask what to see in Paris. Of course this depends on your personal interests so you will want to fill out your Virtual Tourist Home Page including your travel interests so you can get more helpful answers. However, as a generic what to see . . . or what do I like to see, here is my list of ten things we enjoy in Paris and try to see each time we are there.
(1) Tuileries Gardens (summer fun fair with Ferris wheel, carousel; winter cafes, art and people)
(2) Louvre Museum (Mona Lisa, Winged Victory, Venus, etc.)
(3) Musee d?Orsay (the Impressionists)
(4) Ste. Chapelle (gorgeous stained glass)
(5) Cluny Museum or the Musée de Moyen Age (Lady & the Unicorn tapestries)
(6) Luxembourg Gardens (people, playgrounds, concerts and fun)
(7) Rodin Museum (The Thinker, The Kiss, etc.. nice garden & tea room)
(8) Notre Dame Cathedral
(9) Latin Quarter walk
(10) Eiffel Tower and area (can get the Batoboat here for tour)

Fondest memory: Too many fond memories to choose one.
What do I miss the most? Being totally surrounded by beauty . . . trees, fountains, beautiful buildings, lovely people, everything being picturesque, the vibrancy of a big city with the compactness of a much smaller place, something to do all the time . . . and, of course, the food.
I am not a city person and didn't even want to visit Paris the first time. Once we spent some time in Paris, I was hooked. It may be the only city in the world I truly look forward to visiting. There is an underlying friendliness that is almost small-town.
