in Paris this weekend - itin suggestions

Hi everyone,

My husband & I will be going to Paris this weekend. Will be there for 3 1/2 days (Friday to Monday afternoon). Can anyone suggest what we can do and if there will be anything special on this Valentine's day weeekend? Also, what are open on Sundays as I heard most things are closed...

hi there..

1. the only things closed on Sundays as a rule are shops and department stores, grocery stores. The museums and monuments are open just fine.

2. I think Valentines is just expensive restaurant packages...

3. My question back to you is - - what made you choose Paris to visit? what are you interested in seeing? it's no use for people to tell you what to do when they don't know what you're looking for... I mean, it's very easy to determine the main things people see when in Paris. Did you look at the articles under "Overview" link on Tripadvisor/Paris?

Another place to start:

Hi Meow, book the hop on hop off bus [ les cars rouge ] for 2 days, 24 Euros each, and you will see the major attractions and different districts of Paris in one fell swoop without having to waste time and energy on the Metro. We did the full tour on the bus, approx 2 1/2 hours then got on and off for the 2 days and visited the areas we were interested in.

Buses come every 15 mins, very handy. Enjoy Holl.

The museums will be free on Sunday, Marfch 1, so factor that into your plans. The Orsay and Louvre will be quite crowded, but it is a good day to visit a less popular museum like the Branly or Arts et Metiers, but if you go to any museum on Sunday, go early.

The Salon d'Agriculture is at Porte de Versailles, closing Sunday. It is THE annual show for all producers of food and drink in France and is quite impressive. http://www.salon-agriculture.com/

Good rugby game tonight will be on at all the pubs - France v. Wales.
