I had an amazing time in Paris this past March. This was my second time in the city of lights and love, and I really got to soak in and learn the city over the nine days I was there. C’était magnifique!

I hope you can use these tips to make your next Parisian vacation magical. Here’s my list of five activities to skip in and around Paris, France, particularly if your time is limited to a few days, and what you should check out instead.
If you live in Queens or happen to be around that burrough with some time to spare, I highly suggest checking out the Welling Court Mural Project in West Astoria. It’s free, open 24/7 to the public, and a true hidden gem in NYC.
