You do not need to be a museum person to fall in love with this museum. Even if you do not have the time to explore the insides (though we advocate that you should totally do it and steal the perfection of Mona Lisa and likewise), even the outsides of this place is sheer beauty.


The structure of the museum and the aroma, the way the ambiance lights up and everything else makes for such a phenomenal weekend which you would have a hard time forgetting.


4. River Seine Cruise

This is another activity we can’t help but love. If you like laidback activities rather than the ones which push the adrenaline level and have them soaring, it is important to make sure that you hop on for this lovely cruise. The cruise starts from the foot of the Eiffel tower and it will take you on a scenic tour of the Paris city, giving you ample time to drink to the charismatic beauty of this amazing city.


As the dusk begins to set, the city lights up in hues of several colors and so does the Eiffel tower. Surely, it would end up being one of the loveliest of all things to do.


5. The Disneyland

While the Disneyland isn’t precisely in the city of Paris but rather on the outskirts of the town, this is surely one of the top weekend activities, especially if you have kids along with you.


Disneyland Paris is one of the amazing parks which will give you so much to cherish and enjoy. Take all the best rides and live to your heart’s content. There are endless photo stops and some of the shows are equally entertaining too.


We recommend buying the tickets in advance or booking them online rather than buying at the gates to make sure that you don’t end up paying more and burning a hole in your pocket. Keep an eye out for some good steal deals too.


6. Shopping

Well, Paris is home to some of the best and the posh designer labels. Of course, everyone dreams of shopping in Paris. From the world’s finest perfumes to the best of makeup and even clothing, what is there in Paris which your eyes won’t fall in love with!


However, this could be a massive setback to your total expenses because nothing in Paris comes for cheap. So, be prepared to burn a lot of money if you start indulging in shopping.


If you are on a shoestring budget, you can head to some of the infamous night markets and other little outlet stores that sell designer stuff for cheap. However, be wary of being duped or even pickpocketed here because Paris does share its story of notorious crimes.


So, these are some of the amazing things which you can indulge in over the weekend when at Paris. There is no doubt that it is one of the most beautiful of all cities in France and spending a weekend here is going to be memorable in ways more than one.


You can simply explore the city as every lane has something magical to offer and it will surely add to your experience which you will always recollect with a smile on your face.
