Paris - for the repeat visitor...

Jump to last reply

Returning to Paris in late May for a week for what is probably my 7th or 8th trip. My husband & I love the city, and start to get itchy if we've gone too long without a visit. In any case, I'd love some ideas for perhaps less well known places to visit or things to do. To give some context: we like walking & hiking, museums (art, history, etc.), good food & wine, cooking, history, etc. We're not big shoppers, but like to window shop a bit, usually in smaller stores. On previous visits, we've been to: Louvre (multiple times), Orsay (multiple times), Nissim de Camondo, Jacquemart-Andre (but only for lunch...), Sacre Couer, Rodin, Carnavalet, Picasso, Institut du Monde Arabe, Notre Dame, Ste. Chapelle, the Catacombs. We've wandered the streets and the various markets. We've also been to Chartres as well as Versailles.

We've lined up a wine tasting dinner already, as well as a quick trip to Strasbourg to visit a friend. I think my husband has requested visiting the sewers. Any thoughts for other opportunities I've overlooked? Thanks in advance!
