And, in counterpoint to the previous post on top 5 things to do is this short list of under-rated or under-visited Paris attractiions. I can vouch for the Musée Carnavalet and the Palais Tokyo. I’d add the Arènes de Lutece Roman ampitheatre in the Fifth. Paris is definitely more than just the Louvre, Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe.

As Murray on travel says, take your time. Don’t rush. It’s a shame to go to Paris and not slow down enough to get a feel of the rhythm of Parisian life.
