For everyone who fails to put the Musee des Egouts (the sewer museum) in Paris on your top 10 or top 100 list, you're seriously missing out!!! It's fabulous and for 3 euros, it's a steal.

If the weather is cold and when it's cold it's very cold, do your shopping at Galleries Lafayette. Almost everything is there. The cafe isn't too bad either for refreshment, which you will need. That place is huge and is all-consuming. I agree with all the other suggestions, too. Walk, Walk, Walk... and see the most beautiful city from many different angles and vantage points. Don't miss the small markets on the rive gauche; looking at the food and how it is displayed is very interesting. Go into a patisserie and buy five gorgeous and delicious pastries for under four dollars and watch them wrap the package perfectly. Then take it back to your room and have a sugar feast! The Louvre has an amazing permanent African art exhibit which I recommend. I always go to the Cluny Museum. You will see Roman architecture, medieval works, etc. in a beautiful setting.

Gads! how can anyone leave out the Bois(de Boulogne) Two famous beautiful restaurants, Pre Catalan, Grande Cascade, and another one on the iles, you go by boat, there's a rose garden, a zoo, a horse trail, and so much more, check out the old film, GIGI, opening filmed in the bois.

I'm interested in the question that xxx posed about what to do in January since I'll be there next month. I'm also wondering if anyone has used the book Impressionist Walks or Walks of the Impressionists, something like that. It shows you a photo of the painting and then shows you how to get to the location today that matches the painting. A local travel writer had praised it highly several years ago. I'm just wondering if that would be as much fun in the winter.
