There are so much things to...
There are so much things to see and make in Paris.
For that, there is a very interesting site: www.cityvox.com
It is very complete and you will be able to seek your program with your own way.
Then I leave you your own choice. One of my best memories was than as of my arrival at the Station of
Lyon and right after having been to pose my business, I made in
entirety the descent of the Champs-Elysés since the Place de l'Etoile to the Tuileries.
There one took a small pause then we completly went up by the other side of the street.
You will say to me can be that it too is not tiring, but try to do it at least once by making each gallery, each window...
Ile de la Cite
Ile de la Cite is the oldest part of Paris and is situated on a small island in the middle of the river Seine. A lot of the small houses and small alleys caracterising the Middle Ages have disappeared in the 19th century, but you can still feel the atmosphere in some parts on the island.
It is here that you can admire the Notre Dame Cathedral.

Apply that lipstick.....
The Le Pere Lachaise cemetry , (6, rue du Repos, Paris 20e France) is well on the beaten track of tourist destination in Paris. Featuring a whole range of famous people lying in residence, it struck me as a kind of Madame Tussaud's of the next world.
There are also a number of customs that have arisen associated with certain graves.
Oscar Wilde's grave lies to the rear of the cemetry and features a modernist sculpture of an Egyptian. The white stone used for the monument has been covered in the last few years by Women (and perhaps a few men) leaving a big smacking kiss on the outside. The fats in Lipstick apparantly seep into the stone and are an absolute bugger to remove.
The descendents of the family have attempted to scrub the monument clean several times in the past. This time they are seeking corporate sponsorship for the costly operation and are trying to talk L'oreal into coughing up.
All seems a bit pointless me - I think it is a very refreshing new tradition that speaks volumes about the way Oscar is still regarded and loved.
South of Paris about 20 miles, this palace rivals and probably surpasses the Versailles. It has more elegant structures and the grounds are immaculate. I cannot say enough how beautiful this is. One would need to take a whole day to view it all and am sure need to get tickets ahead.
