X = X Marks the Spot in Paris

Whether you're a seasoned visitor to Paris or on your first visit, the Paris Mystery Tour will show you Paris in a way like no other.

(image via HERE)

Crack the clues, guide yourself around this great city and expect to discover something new both on and off the beaten track.

A Mystery Tour is a self-guided journey around an area of a tourist city where the route you take depends on your answers to a set of clues, questions and puzzles that can be tackled in any order.

There's no tour bus, no tour guide and no headphones. Instead, they supply you with a map and a series of conundrums that send you on a journey of discovery of a city's past and present.

It's a fun way to get your bearings, see major sights, discover hidden corners, pick up interesting facts along the way and start to get a flavour of the history, architecture and people of Paris.

The information in this post is via X Marks the Spot... I've never taken this tour, but it sounds INTERESTING!!!  Sorry no paintings today... still bizeeeeeee doing commissioned paintings and working on the last to days of this A to Z Challenge... "Y" and "Z" in Paris will be PARTY DAYS come back with your fancy frocks!!!

Lavender Fields forever... the first picture of the Arc de Triomphe, no wonder they call this the city of light...gorgeous and so is your art work I have gotten so many compliments from that one picture of yours - good investment.


After following your blog this month I have promised myself a trip to Paris one day.
Loved the post as usual.

Have a grand day.

I'm adventurous but love sitting on a bus/mini van and having my feet up and someone on the mic feeling my head with knowledge.

Oooohh! This sounds so fun! You can stop and linger where you'd like and move on when you're ready....one of these days...!
Have a beautiful day, Fifi dear!
;-D Kathleen

Hi Fifi, this looks like a fun way to see a city! I'll have to remember to bring some chic walking shoes as I pound the streets of Paris!

Have a great day, Bonnie

PS - I've loved following along your A-Z challenge!

Oh Fifi ma belle,

I am at school today, so I can't do my sidebar just yet, but thanks again for the permission to put your link up. I am going to make it a sort of "art gallery" and feature you and someother artists are well. I have a question...on your header, the furthest image with the Eiffel tower and the pink tree...I would love to use that image for the link. Where do I find that image?

If you can, email me at:


All your work is exquisite and it is hard to choose one, but that one particularly captures me! Just a thought. Bonne journee!

I love this...what a great way to explore and find all kinds of goodies along the way. I'm ready, got your sneakers on?

This is great seeing where everything is on a compact map. I cant believe how big Paris is. For some reason I have always pictured it much much smaller.

Wanda said...

Sounds interesting but for someone who's directionally challenge, I think I prefer a tour guide.

I would go anywhere in Paris. No mystery needed! Thanks for stopping by to see us Fifi. Hope all's well with you! -- Jane F.

Bonjour Fifi,

This would be a fun way to look around Paris. Thanks for sharing.

In my younger days this would have probably suited me more. Now if I ever went I guess I'd want a guide to take me by the hand and lead me around. But then again......
