RV Road Trip - 100 Things to do in France 19/20

The country of France is literally filled with medieval cities, alpine villages, and glorious beaches. Vineyards and wines make it world famous, as do the many classical museums and monuments. Ancient caves with prehistoric drawings, theatres and palaces, art galleries and eclectic villages – there is something for everyone in this amazing country!


91. Restaurant Guy Savoy

This is a three-star restaurant, owned by the chef who trained Gordon Ramsay. You will enter the establishment on a red carpet and find yourself in a beautiful neoclassical dining room. Taste his iconic menu dishes such as artichoke and black truffle soup with a layered brioche. Whatever your taste, this place is sure to blow you away!
Treat yourself to a memorable evening of the most delicious dishes!
Make sure you book in advance as it is very popular and you may not get a table without a reservation.


92. Cité de l’Espace

This is the most amazing space museum on the eastern outskirts. You will find many hands-on exhibits, including the moon simulator. There is a rotating pod which is designed to test your tolerance for space travel. There are full-scale models of the Mars Rover and a 52 meter high space rocket.
You may want to book your tickets in advance to avoid the lines at the office, and then allow yourself a full day here.


93. 59 Rivoli

This area used to be a squat for poor artists, although it has been renovated and transformed into a colony for artists. There are over 30 studios where artists can work for a minimal rent. The wild graphics which covered the walls previously have been replaced with whimsical and expressive paintings on the new stone exterior.
Allow yourself a morning to explore the eclectic shops and perhaps buy a piece for yourself.


94. Petite Ceinture

This is an abandoned railway line which runs all around the city. There are some stretches where it is covered with over 200 varieties of flowers and plants, vibrant in the season with colour. Mostly the bridges and tunnels are untouched and the original tracks are still in place.
Several sections are open to the public, and it is a popular route to walk and explore.
Allow a day if you enjoy walking, although you may do less with young children.


95. House of Nicolas Flamel

This is the oldest stone house in Paris. It was built in 1407 by Flamel, who was a world-famous alchemist. This is where he carried out all his experiments, and then died here in the 15th century. Before he died, he designed his own tombstone which is to be seen at the Musée de Cluny.
Allow a half day to see this, then find the street which intersects with it, which is named after his wife Pernelle.
The house has been converted into a small and interesting restaurant.
Take some time to learn about this famous alchemist who is supposed to have discovered the method of turning metal into gold!
