OK, my friends, I need your help.  I am planning a trip to Paris in the spring of 2013 and I need your advice.  Please recommend places Mr. B and I should stay, where we should eat, and what we should see other that the 10 most likely places a tourist would visit.  I really want to go to the city to soak up the atmosphere.  I intend to spend my time in the city and will be walking a lot.  I want to eat, drink, and people watch.  Probably will be there for 5-7 days.  So, you're the experts.  Let me know the best or the over-rated.  I've been reading Frommer's.
Share your travel tips, and Thank you.


  1. No Paris advice here but WOW you're really going huh? Cool!!! Actually I guess I do have some advice - there's some great big flea market that you prolly shouldn't miss but I have no idea where etc. Oh what fun you'll have. We expect tons of pics.

  2. Lucky you! I was lucky enough to visit in 2007 and now so want to go back. Before i left my brother gave me a little book of cards called Paris Walks. Each card has a section of Paris for a half or full day walk with all the sites to see marked on a little map and description on the other side. It was the BEST thing to use and now i keep an eye out for any of these for other cities. HIGHLY recommend you get a set/book. Love, Janine

  3. Thanks for the great advice. I had forgotten about those cards. They were a great help in NYC. What I really, really need is advice on where to stay. I know it is going to be expensive, but I'm hoping to find that unique place that is close to attractions, but not overpriced. I have been doing mucho reading. How can I be a tourist without paying like a tourist? I don't need to pay 12 euros for breakfast. bb

  4. I spent a month in France two years ago, one week of it in Paris. Loved the city and walked everywhere like you intend to do. My blog ( chronicles our entire trip (October, 2010) if you want to take a peek. I'm sure you'll get lots of great recommendations, but a highlight was getting drinking chocolate from Angelina's (by the Louve). To. Die. For.
