    I will be traveling to Paris for the first time this upcoming Summer. This list has 132 items, I doubt I can do all of those. Which would you recommend I def do and what can wait until next time (hopefully there is one). I will be there approx four days. Thx for the guidance!

      A lot of what you choose to do depends on your own interests: we wouldn't recommend art museums or churches if you aren't into art or architecture, if that makes sense? What do you usually like to spend your time on while on holiday?

    It would be nice to label the photos on the opening slide show. We know what all those places are but someone planning their first trip would probably not. It would also be nice to spell museum correctly in your opening article. I think people should be aware of pickpockets but there are not pickpockets "everywhere" in Paris. The idea is good and I'm sure your finished product will be very useful. Excellent start.

      Although I agree about the river cruise being expensive, you can still take the Batobus " Hop-On, Hop-Off" version cheap enough and the ticket lasts all day. Montmartre "seedy" ??? And why always the rant on pickpockets in Paris ?? They are everywhere round the world, not just in Paris.
