500 things To Do In Paris - new thread

About 10 years ago a thread was started with the intent to name 100 great things to do in Paris and about 4 years a go I see a "free things to do" thread. Several hundered ideas were posted. Times have changed, some things may no longer exist and prices have gone up. I know that I for one have relied on the prior lists, done may things and am now looking for new things that will not break the bank. With that said, how about a new thread to follow, with fresh ideas as well as some of the "classics. " Let's see if we can get to 500 items to include those that are free and those that have a cost. If you know the aproximate cost, posting it would be great. So, with that said, I'll start with a "classic" (and one of my favorites):

#1 Eat a small macaroon of a different flavor every day while in Paris (with luck under 2EU)

#2 Stroll hand in hand along the Seine in the evening with the lights reflecting off the water, with the one you love. (cost zero)

Buy a copy of the International Herald Tribune, sit in an outdoor cafe with a coffe, and watch the passing crowd while feeling very content ---- and a bit smug.

Stroll along the right bank with a scoop of caramel au beurre sale icecream from Berthillion.

Check out the famous graves at Père Lachaise cemetery.

Go to a free museum on the 1st Sunday of the month - I like the Musée du Moyen Age (Cluny) http://www.musee-moyenage.fr/ang/hom...21040_u1l2.htm

Visit one of the municipal museums. No admission charge for permanent exhibits. My favorites, so far, are the Musée Carnavalet, and Victor Hugo's home on the Place des Vosges.

For a list and further information, see:
