Hi Ayten,

I'd recommend you to go to Le Marais Sunday. The Jewish quarter is very much alive this day. Rue Des rosiers, have a falafel at "l'as du Falafel". Then enjoy an eclair at "eclair du genie"
You'll enjoy the rue du Marché de Saint Catherine and place Des Vosges.

A river cruise can also be a good idea if it is not too cold.

On Monday I'd recommend to go to the Grands Boulevards, enjoy walking the covered passages, they are just a walk away from the Opera. My favorite is passage panoramas, but joffroy is also pretty!

Happy visit to you!

Hi:
One of the most influential People in ParismFashion was Yves. st. Laurent. There is a really interesting Museum with His original Workroom preserved as He left it, on Rue Marceau. Need to check the Hours. Small and really interesting. I also enjoyed the St. Martin Canal Cruise. I like to start at the Bastille and cruise up about two hours. Then walk back if the weather is good. If it is Sunday, the Jewish Shops and many Reataurants are open along the way back. Best in reasonable weather, but the Boats are covered. You can always get the Metro back. The Cruise ends in a huge complex, with some Museums, etc. the Locks the Boat goes through are very old, and some is under the Streets.

The. Conciergerie is a former Royal palace and prison situated on central Paris. Beautiful gothic building. You can visit Marie Antoinette's cell.

The catacombs is a must see. Unique site and largest necropolis worldwide. I'm a tour guide at the museum.

The château de Vincennes is a Royal palace at the south east border of Paris. Is a massive fortress with a big moat all around. Very unusual for Paris and off the beaten paths. Surprisingly not famous even to French people.

Check the program of the church Sainte Chapelle, built under Saint Louis to shelter the crown of thorns. They play some classical music gigs some evenings. One of the vastest stained glasses. Even if there are no gigs it worths visiting it.

Odd museums: museum of wine, erotism, smoker, fair ground arts...

Check out the Paris townhall website. You can see all the cultural events planned, but also the addresses and timetables of the markets (if you like French food) and any informations needed to visit Paris.
