Unless you eat, like, a LOT of kale, then eventually you are unfortunately going to die. It sucks, we know. But the good part is that before all of that happens, you get to hang out in Paris, probably the most beautiful and cultured city in the world -- and to make sure you squeeze every last ounce of life out of this glorious place, here are the things you need to do before you leave:
1. Go to the flea markets
You need to have at least one, ahem "treasure" to take home.
2. Have a Bloody Mary at Harry’s Bar
It’s the bar that birthed the perfect hangover cure, so pay a visit.
3. Listen to buskers at Sacré-Cœur
Beer, live music, and a view of the world’s most beautiful city are hard to find elsewhere.

The Best Non-Touristy Places to Take Friends Visiting Paris
When friends come to visit, you want to take them to places that don’t scream selfie sticks and fanny packs. Sure, they should totally check out the Louvre and Notre Dame, but you don’t need to visit for the nth time -- besides, you need to spend that time catching up on Game of Thrones. If you push outside of the eternally tourist-filled center, however, you can find worthwhile places to spend a few hours -- or even the whole day -- with your guests... all without seeing even one English-language menu.
