Paris is one of my favorite places to go. I lived in Paris in 2005-06 and was back there again in 2014. Several friends have headed over there over the years. I originally did up this map of Paris for friend who was there in 2011.  At first I just wanted to show her one walk worth taking and one museum to go to.

Here’s my map of Paris, which has an emphasis on good food, outdoor spaces and less-explored places.


If you like Monet and other Impressionists and would like to go to a museum that many people don’t make it to, and to visit a section of town that is a little quieter and less touristy, I recommend the Musée Marmottan-Monet on the western edge of Paris, in the 16th arrondissement, up against the Bois de Boulogne.  Be aware the Paris Museum Pass does not cover this museum. There’s also a nice cafe/restaurant here called La Rotonde de la Muette, which serves food all day (many cafes only serve food during lunch from 12pm to 2pm and dinner at 8pm).
