Alone in Paris

Jump to last reply

I have taken the plunge. I have booked seven nights (and days) in Paris in late October, 2015. While I have been to Paris numerous times before, I have never done a solo trip. As a teacher I have escorted school groups on European adventures, but those trips nearly always had fairly tight itineraries. This time I can set my own schedule. I am looking forward to the flexibility afforded me in retirement.
My purpose in starting this thread is to seek advice on how to fill my time. I have seen most of the major draws (Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Notre Dame, Sacre Coeur, Versailles), but have never visited the Musée Rodin, the Orangerie or the Marmottan. While I don’t intend to spend all my time in museums, I wonder if there are worthy sites that well-travelled Fodorites might recommend to me. Also – if there are other activities or events that you particularly enjoyed, I would love to consider those too.
I will be staying in centrally located hostels and I look forward to meeting other travellers while there. I will use public transit.
My patient wife is not a traveller, but allows me to indulge my interests. I am very grateful for this.
If other Fodorites are in Paris October 19 - 25 and we are able to arrange a lunch or brief meeting, that would be grand.
