I’ve got several friends heading to Paris this spring. I won’t make it myself this year but in helping my friends plan their trips, I’ve arrived at my top three recommendations of things to do in Paris.

  1. Enjoy a private art, history and walking tour with Paris Personalized. I’ve done their tour of The Louvre three times and loved it and learned more each time.
  2. Take a cooking class and neighbourhood food tour with my friends Aurelie and Marion at  Succulent Paris. You’ll get to experience a day in the life of real Parisians.
  3. Book with Fat Tire Tours. Their day long bicycle trip to Versailles – with shopping at an organic market and picnicking on the grounds of Versailles – is a wonderful way to explore more.

Otherwise, just get a metro pass and a museum pass and wander. There’s no better city in the world to just walk the streets and get lost for a while. I’m continuously discovering old museums I was unaware of and two years ago I visited the (then) brand spanking new  – Fondation Luis Vuitton (FLV).

Dedicated to the history of art, the museum itself also an art installation. The latest work of Canadian-born architect Frank Gehry it appears as a tall ship sailing through Bois de Boulogne park. I hope you’ll include it in your next visit to Paris. Because I’m such a fan of Gehry’s, the rest of this post is just a collection of photos from my visit.  Continue reading
