Paris - for the 6th time - need new ideas!

Jump to last reply

I'll be in Paris for about 4 days on my own before meeting up with my parents (their first time there). It's my sixth time in paris and have already seen all the touristy stuff (plus will see them again with my parents!). Please - I need some ideas on what to do on my free days on my own. I love experiencing the local culture, eating great food, blending in with the local folks going about their daily business, people watching. i like museums but I'm not the type to be able to spend the whole day in museums.

I'll be stayin gin the 11th arrondisement close to the Nation metro station (never stayed in the 11th before but found a fabulous hotel with high ranking from Tripadvisor).

So far, my plan is to take a 6 hr cooking course at Cordon Bleu and to see the Musee l'orangerie. Other than that, I'm open to suggestions. I have thought about doing a day trip to Giverny or Chatres but would be more inclined to stay in Paris. So please tell me your favorite haunts, neighborhoods, food-related ideas for Paris. Thank you in advance!
