This is our first trip to Paris and our first full day will be on May 1st. I am quite sure we will still be able to find lots to do and see. (Thinking of a Fat Tire bike tour, Notre Dame and/or Cimetière du Père Lachaise.) But it's my understanding most shops and restaurants close for this holiday.
Of course I am worried what we are going to eat! :-)
We are staying in the Marais close to the Seine. Other places I have looked at eating include Josephine Chez Dumonet, Le Regalade, Chez Paul, La Tartine (maybe they will be open?), Breizh Cafe. This is all *very* preliminary and will change. Just including so you can get an idea of what we like to eat.
Should I be worried about May Day eats? Any suggestions?
