Mother/Daughter trip to Paris!

Jump to last reply

My mother is taking me to Paris at the end of May to celebrate my 30th birthday. We have both been before (separately), but many years ago. We had very different previous experiences: I backpacked through Europe during summers off of university and she travelled with my dad. So, between us we have seen the "major" sights.

I would like to return to my favourite galleries - Musee D'Orsay, Pampadoo Centre, etc., but we are not looking to only "sightsee". I don't want to run around like a lunatic - I have a 1 year old at home, work full-time in a high stress job etc - I need some time to decompress. I would like to spend time shopping, and just walking around the different neighbourhoods.

What did I probably miss the first time in Paris that I should do this time around? Where should we shop, go for lunch, people-watch? I am also looking for some suggestions of things a little off the beaten path. I am really looking forward to sharing this experience with my mom - we've never travelled like this together.

Thank you in advance for your help and suggestions!
