Hey. I'm about to go to Paris in a week. Wanted to know if there's any website which could help me find the small places to explore(eateries, shops, museums, etc.), so that I can experience Paris at it's fullest.

Or does anybody have any reccomendations?

Hi. Lucky you. We missed our trip to Paris last year because of COVID. Your Profile Page doesn't say where you are traveling from so be sure to check all the regulations about traveling to France from wherever you are. If tests are required, you'll want to schedule those quickly.

As far as what to see, the first thing I'll suggest is that you check the Paris Tourist Office to see what is open right now. Click here for the Paris Tourist Bureau

You don't say whether or not this is your first trip to Paris nor how long you are planning to stay. I have an ongoing Paris blog here on TravellersPoint that has lots of suggestions, both for the new Paris visitor and for the person who wants to avoid the tourist sites. Personally, I love the tourist sites and that's one of the reasons we keep returning to Paris. However, if your time is limited, you may want to choose your sites carefully. Here's my blog page on Must-see Sights in Paris that will give you an overview and it lists web sites for most of them so you can check opening hours and COVID rules.

If you are not familiar with the city, you may want to get a good map. There is a wonderful booklet map called "Paris Pratique par Arrondissement" that is arranged by district (arrondissement) with each district on a separate page. Metro (subway) stops and bus stops are marked and so are all the major tourist sites. It is all in a 5x7 inch booklet that fits in your pocket. Here's the blog entry for that. Click here for "Don't Get Lost in Paris"

Check the Table of Contents for other ideas and restaurants. Do you have a place to stay?

Let me know if you need more information and I'll try to help. It's a beautiful city and you can have a great time just walking around not visiting anything in particular. Have a great trip.
