This is definitely a great list of some of the top things to do in Paris! I’ve never been to Deyrolle and I thought that recommendation was quite fascinating. However, if you’ve been to Paris before, you’ll know that there are lots of tourists traps and long lines like the Towers of Notre Dame. If you’re looking to get away from all the touristy things and see a more local experience of Paris, check out lokafy.com. We connect you with a local who will show you different hidden gems and introduce you to a new perspective.

How about the catacombs - a bit gruesome maybe but rather unusual. There's also the famous sewers...

Slide No. 12 is my favorite handbag store! Fun designs, bright colors, nice leather and more affordable than big brands. I've gotten lots of compliments -- unusual for this non-fashionista!
