Headed to the most romantic city in the world? Obviously, you’ll scale the Eiffel Tower, lunch on the Seine in a bateau mouche, and ogle priceless art at the Musee D’Orsay, but there’s plenty for those who prefer rock ’n’ roll and brewskis to Renoir and Bordeaux.


For the cardio queen …

Lace up your kicks, hit the cobblestone, and earn every creamy calorie with Paris Running Tours. Jog past the Louvre’s glass pyramids on the Right Bank tour, or follow the Paris cathedral trail past Saint-Sulpice and Notre Dame.


For the mixology maven …

Even if you can’t foot the bill to stay at the five-star Le Royal Monceau Raffles Paris, expertly crafted cocktails and celeb-spotting at its bar fit any budget. Mixologists pour your poison in a coupe of your choosing from the wall of vintage glassware. From $1,100 per night.


For the soccer hooligan …

Take the 20-minute metro ride to the home of celebrated club Paris Saint-Germain, Parc des Princes. Hourlong tours are offered Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and include a lingering stop in the trophy room to celebrate the French side’s glory days.


For the Spotify groupie …

You can’t beat a bar, restaurant, nightclub and concert hall all rolled into one. The dance floor at L’Alimentation Generale fills quickly as dinner tables empty, and live bands and world-class DJs take the stage until 5 a.m.


For the craft-beer connoisseur …

IPA lovers can swill at The Frog & Rosbif, a microbrewery with beers sporting clever monikers (a roasty Dark de Triomphe, anyone?) and burgers to quell any craving for home.
