Visiting Paris

Regarded as the most romantic city in the world, Paris is definitely a wonderful place for couples to visit, although you don’t have to be travelling there with that ‘someone special’ to appreciate it. It is full of famous landmarks and museums, great places to eat and a host of buzzing bars and nightclubs. So even if you are going with some friends or on your own, you won't find it hard to fill your days.

    Beautiful but a tourist trap

    Although Paris is gorgeous and the architecture is stunning, all of the sites felt like huge tourist traps. They were expensive, crowded, and, though excellent, the crowds and price made them far less enjoyable. It was really hard to find inexpensive, good places to eat too. I wouldn't recommend spending more than 2 days in Paris unless you have some spare cash to spend.

    Insider Tip:The second floor of the Eiffel Tower is just as fine as the top.

    Overrated and unenjoyable

    I suppose it was because I was on a student budget and really did not get to experience much of what Paris has to offer. Accommodation and food were my main costs. I'll be back on a bigger budget probably when I'm in a different phase of life.

    Paris is large, crowded and expensive. You have to be a little more careful here than other cities for theft and scams I still enjoyed myself, there is so much to do and see. .

    Insider Tip:Check out Sandmans free walking tour, a great and enjoyable way to learn about history and see the sights.

    I saw you again, Paris!

    Great city to be in and always awesome to learn. I did a walking tour with friends and it was great to see other parts of Paris that I never saw. Our tour guide was awesome and he was Ireland. Niall, thanks for showing us Paris from a historical perspective.

    Insider Tip:Be careful for pickpockets near the Eiffel Tower. I have never gotten anything stolen, but you don't want to be friendly with the people around there because they will take something without you even noticing.
