Maitaitom & Tracy's Romantic 20th Anniversary Paris 2014 Trip In September

Jump to last reply

Yes, champagne will be flowing and escargot will be savored at a snail's pace throughout the City Of Light this September as Tracy and I celebrate 20 years of wedded bliss (anniversary is actually in July). Tracy has finally ripped up the pre-nuptial agreement, so it looks like we're in it for the long haul (take that Captain and Tennille).

Although we have traveled to Paris many times, we have never been here during European Heritage Days...until this year. Since we have visited so many Paris sites over the years, we're pretty excited to be able to go to places that are not usually open to the public.

I have scoured through websites and have found a few venues that seem like no-brainers to visit on these days (Hôtel de Ville, Luxembourg Palace, Banque de France to name a few). A couple of questions:

For those who have been in Paris at this time of year (Kerouac comes immediately to mind, as long as he isn't too busy making one of those cool, Bombay movies) what places would you recommend we see? Also, with the lines, how many could we realistically visit? Lastly, when do they publish the places that will be open?

During our stay, we are also planning to spend some time off the so-called beaten path in arrondissements we have neglected over the years, so suggestions on these areas would also be much appreciated.

I'm scouting out restaurants for our "official" anniversary dinner, too. Cozy, noisy (we don't care) bistro fits the bill…Large fancy restaurants need not apply.

Merci!

((H))
