"the backstreets. Go to the..." Paris Off The Beaten Path Tip by ladyolac

Paris Off The Beaten Path: 1,958 reviews and 4,138 photos

the backstreets. Go to the Marais and walk the streets, the stranger the name, the better the place. Visit Paris by foot with good sneakers and a map of the metro (so that when you are exhausted, you can always make your way back to your bed). Just pick a direction and walk there, usually what you will see on the way will be more fun than the place you were going to.
The banks of the river Seine, always a beautiful walk. Go to the 'Ile de la Cite', metro 'Cite'and get out in front of Notre Dame and go down to the river side and walk to the Place de la Concorde, once it gets boring, move up to the road and cross the Tuilerie gardens. In summer, that is the best walk one can do.
