Dancing on the Seine Banks

Naturally, if you want to learn tango, Argentina is the place to go. However, there is a Parisian version of this and it takes place on the banks of the Seine. More precisely, Tino Rossi Quai Saint-Bernard. Go there at 7 pm at any day of the week, from May to September. That is when the free lesson of tango takes place and you can join.

Attending a Fashion Show

Make sure that you are in Paris on Friday. As the clock strikes 3 pm, present yourself at the Galeries de Lafayette department store. At that time, the real 30-minute fashion show begins and the models feature the designs of the famous designers. Also, once you are there, help yourself with the free samples of cosmetics offered in this legendary department store.

Another very interesting thing that you can do in Paris is to visit somebody at work. While this is not a sightseeing thing, it is very interesting because it will give you an insight into the everyday of people living in this city. There is a program for this, funded by the Paris Tourist Office. You can find a list of Parisians willing to welcome you to their workplace and show you the ropes of their job. It is definitely a wonderful experience since the majority of them are artisans.
