After living in Paris for nearly three years I am about to move back to London in two months time. I'd like to do a few new things before I go and would welcome any suggestions that aren't the usual tourist/guidebook fair. Restaurants, museums, streets, tours, markets - anything!

There are some 143 vineyards in Paris and Île-de-France. It could be an idea to visit some of them ...

Have a cruise. The Seine is by far the most famous place for this. However, there are other less "touristic" but not less interesting day cruises you can have in and around Paris: Canal Saint-Martin, Marne, and Canal Saint-Denis.
