3 months in Paris

Jump to last reply

How would you spend 3 months in Paris?!

My husband and I will be living there for three months starting in September. We'll be there mostly just to live and enjoy the experience, but we also both freelance for work so will have to dedicate *some* time to working at home & in cafes ;-)... We're doing this because it's likely the one small window in our life for a while where we don't have kids, a house mortgage, health issues, or any reason NOT to take a leap and change our scenery.

Looking for some advice on...

-We're renting an apartment in Le Marais, but want to take short trips to visit other towns / countries. For traveling within the schengen zone, would it be in our best interest to buy individual train tickets, or would renting a car be a smarter idea?

-After 3 months in Paris, we're most likely heading to the UK for my husband's work for a yet-to-be-decided amount of time. Therefore, we don't want to visit any UK countries during our time in France. What are your favorite say, weekend trips out of Paris?

-For spending a good chunk of time in Paris, what would you recommend that you couldn't easily do on a short trip? Of course we'll visit all the galleries (we're both freelance artists), enjoy way too many pain au chocolats & cups of espresso, and just gaze at everything, but if there's anything else that doesn't readily come to mind, please share!

Information that might help... We'll both be turning 27 while we're there, we'll also be celebrating our wedding anniversary there (8 years! That will actually be once we make it to the UK), we're into history, art, literature, good food, and importantly, not spending lots of money. :)

Thanks for any suggestions!!
