Top 80 Things to do in Paris
What to do in Paris?
One of the great strengths of Paris is that, even after you have done 70 top things to do, there is still plenty more to do including Conciergerie, Musee Jacquemart-andre, Musée Galliera - Paris Fashion Museum, French Pet, Jardin d'Acclimatation, St-Pierre-de-Montmartre, Avenue Montaigne (la grande dame of fashion), Musee Nissim de Camondo, Musee Eugene Delacroix and Palais de Chaillot.
In all 2,600 got the chop including Queen Marie Antoinette. The "Room of the Doomed" (Saint Louis Room) was where the victims took their final steps on their way to the chopping block. Makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.
72 Musee Jacquemart-andre
The highlights include the State Apartments with its 18th century decorative art, the winter garden and the Sculpture Gallery with its 15th and 16th century Italian sculptures. The Private Apartments retain the feel that you are in the home of Jacquemart-andre.
73 (106) Musée Galliera - Paris Fashion Museum
The Musée Galliera allows you to look back over the ever changing world of fashion, an experience as French as fries.
74 (78) French Pet
Useful activity whilst you are away as there is ‘no room in the suitcase’ to bring one home. The French bulldogs are relatively uncommon. Paris Hilton should have one – maybe you will see her at the Pet Shop.
75 Jardin d'Acclimatation
Perhaps is the highlight miniature road system for children operated by the Paris police with speed cameras (just kidding) and the Musée en Herbe a children's art museum.
Saint Pierre de Montmartre contains pillars dating back to Roman times.
77 (34) Avenue Montaigne (la grande dame of fashion)
Avenue Montaigne consists of numerous stores specialising in high fashion Get the credit card ready for Dior, Chanel and Valentino and then there are the expensive jewelers to consider. Alternatively, you can always pretend and window shop.
78 (74) Musee Nissim de Camondo
You could imagine being invited over for tea to enjoy the great tapestries, carpets, porcelain, furniture and fine paintings that adorn this rich, sumptuous space. A melting marshmallow experience of finery and frothy good taste. Gee what a banker.
79 Musee Eugene Delacroix
Musee Eugene Delacroix was built out of what used to be the home of the great man.
80 (91) Palais de Chaillot
