A longer version of that list MY FAVORITE PLACES IN PARIS - BY A NOT RUDE NOR POSH PARISIAN Maybe you can do a 99 things to do where you live too (I won't lie it was long to do that one) but I felt the need to celebrate Paris recently
  1. Me
    Hahaha ok I had to
  2. Hunt at Le Louvre
    70e60d82 24bd 4471 b544 6e6b008c2ea7
    Just heard about that ! It's available in English so for tourists with kids that can be handy ! (There are different companies doing that treasure hunt things for 2 or 3 hrs, price usually doesn't include the museum tickets)
  3. Musée d'Orsay
    F00f4618 8460 4390 9621 b4d0c611e29b
    The inside is 😍 (arts and architecture itself)
  4. Centre Pompidou
    Aa1bd957 f7f0 4cac b70e 7c442f69f55f
    A Modern art museum that looks like it's still under construction but isn't. Usually having killer temporary exhibition, so be careful with the queue and take your ticket in advance on their website
  5. Visit the Opera Garnier
    65206272 bb38 47fb bd61 af6efd692580
    Don't limit yourself to the outside, you can visit it and it's as splendid as you could dream of. The ballet room roof is paint by Chagall and the terrace is magical
  6. Musee d'Art Moderne
    E2a36981 cb90 4628 ac3f 75b86588a319
    The Paris "MOMA" is in front of the Eiffel Tower so basically even if you don't like the art, take a coffee at their restaurant for the view. They just reopened the museum after some renovations, I didn't get to see it yet but according to my bff it's good.
  7. Yeah ok I get it go see the Eiffel Tower
    I'm pretty sure I might go to jail if I don't mention her. (Eiffel tower is a she please) I think I told that in the previous list but again if you want to climb it book your tickets before !
  8. Cité des sciences
    2a8164a7 52b7 4cf4 998f ea51343f8eda
    I used to love it when I was a kid ! There's sciences related games and exhibitions and lots of things again kid friendly
  9. Notre Dame
    0ba5a1d4 7c44 46fb bc81 8c875e9b4271
    Say hello to Quasimondo for me ! (Pretty easy to get inside btw I don't remember waiting much when I was with tourists friends I was surprised)
  10. Musée de la Mode
    F4a5611e 0633 4faf 9632 ec74f3174dfb
