7. Foodies head to Le Meurice For a gourmet-chic Easter meal, book a brunch at Meurice above anywhere else. Cédric Grole, the head chef, serves a mouth-watering repertoire so make sure you arrive with an empty stomach. Why not treat yourself and have a glass of champagne, fruit, and fresh pastries - or even start with a delicious dessert? Who's to judge, you're on holiday! If you like to keep it savoury, try the Scottish salmon, soft-boiled eggs with black truffle, or a beef "gravelax", or if you're starving, you could even have a heartier meal like lamb leg, a Canadian lobster, or poultry for the real deal.

8. Cycling meets Social Media Roule ma poule is the event organised by Vélib' (the urban hire bikes you'll see all around Paris) for Easter. You are invited to participate in Paris' newest Easter egg hunt from 10:00am to 6:00pm in the capital ... More than 500 "poulettes" (hens) are hidden in the Vélib' baskets but the catch is, you won't find out which stations they are hidden in until they reveal it with the hashtag #RouleMaPoule

9. Adult Playground at Parc André-Citroën We always associate Easter with kids - but let's not leave the adults out! Everyone wants to celebrate Easter, especially when it involves chocolate and treats. But this is something slightly more high-brow. If you consider yourself one of the forgotten, head to Expo in the City which organizes a big cultural treasure hunt. A free event it offers 600 passes into its fascinating exhibition. If this has peaked your interest, turn up on Sunday 5th April at 3:00pm and you'll find out more. As an incentive, you could win tickets to see David Bowie, Bonard, Klimt ...

10. Celebrate Tradition at Notre-Dame Cathedral Nowadays we associate Easter with chocolate above everything else... But let's go back to basics and remember it's roots as a religious celebration and festival. If you want to celebrate traditionally, Notre Dame is holding Easter Vigil Mass at 8.15pm. Even if you're not particularly religious, it's worth a visit to say you've been!
