Five ways to spend two days be­fore or af­ter your cruise from Paris

AH, THE FRENCH. THEY KNOW HOW to live. So, when I had the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence the Parisian life for two days af­ter my re­cent river cruise, I ac­cepted quicker than you can pop a baguette in the oven. Af­ter all, this mag­i­cal city is the per­fect pre- or post-trip to any Europe­based cruise, and even a short visit can of­fer a gen­uine Fran­cophile ex­pe­ri­ence.

The city re­ally has it all: world-fa­mous mu­se­ums and mon­u­ments, gas­tro­nomic in­dul­gences, in­com­pa­ra­ble shop­ping, a bustling nightlife scene, and im­pec­ca­ble wine. I in­cor­po­rated a bit of ev­ery­thing into my short visit, so read on for a few of my fa­vorite ex­pe­ri­ences and sug­ges­tions for your per­fect days in Paris.
