Paris: The So-Called "Offbeat"

Jump to last reply

Yesterday we spontaneously decided to ditch Dijon in favor of Paris for three nights next month.

We'll train from Zurich and have already secured opera tickets at the Bastille ("Aida" again but what can you do?).

What to do? This time, Mr. Excitement wants to visit the Miraculous Medal shrine (it's personal, believe me) and as much as I'd like to go I think we'll skip the Louvre and the mob scene (I wish you could go in about 9 PM and be alone but anyway). And also, this time, I'm determined to actually get to Sacre Coeur.

Wandering the Tuilleries perhaps? I assume that canal that was drained has now been refilled. I always wanted to do that crazy Metro tour that goes to abandoned, or whatever they are, stations but perhaps that was a fantasy.

Not really into cemeteries.

Perhaps I am simply musing for my own enjoyment this morning but if anything "unusual" that you enjoyed in Paris comes to mind I'm interested.
