I am traveling to Paris this summer, and I want to research some "hidden gems" to visit. Cafes, restaurants, shops, castles, churches, museums...you name it. I don't want to only be visiting tourist spots (although I will see some of them), so I am seeking the advice of anyone who has been to Paris that knows of some worthwhile places that are tucked away, or less well-known. I do speak French, and I am an avid figure skater and lover of all things skating. Visiting a place that has to do with skating would be neat, but not necessary. I'm open to hearing about your favorite Parisian spots. Any advice?
Thanks so much!
