Visiting Paris

It is full of famous landmarks and museums, great places to eat and a host of buzzing bars and nightclubs.

    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.

    Beautiful but difficult for a non-French speaker

    Most people prefer speaking in French and many do not speak English so this can be difficult. I would add though that most people I met were quite kind and patient with my poor French. As long as you are trying I think people will recognize your effort and give back. It's a huge walking city but I think if you have Google maps at your disposal, the metro and bus lines are quite helpful as well and will get you pretty much anywhere. Great architecture, beautiful people, rich history--lovely!

    Insider Tip:Safe money by buying fresh ingredients and cooking your own meals. Also definitely eat cheese here and try the local fruit. It smells and tastes amazing. We don't have fruit like this in many places in the US.
