What not to miss in Paris

Jump to last reply

I know that this question has been asked before, but I notice that each time it is asked, people get VERY different answers. I am going to Paris for a week in June, and I was wondering what it is that I should see that I would regret later not seeing?

The friend I am going with isn't a museum person, and I over-dosed on museums and churches when I was in Spain and Italy. I am hoping for things outside of the normal tourist traps like the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre, maybe even things like the best authentic restaurant, or gardens. If this helps give a sense of what I enjoy, when I was in Italy I visited the overgrown gardens and fountains at the Villa d'Este in Tivoli, and this was by far one of my favorite things the whole trip.

In advance, thank you for any recommendations!!
