City Guide Paris, France

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.

    Hello Paris...

    Not a huge fan of this City. It was dirty and the majority of Locals were not friendly or trying to get you to buy some crap tourist gift.

    Paris is beautiful!!!

    Paris is so Beautiful!!! It´s impossivle meet the city in just four days...You need 01 week or more for see many important and interessant things....But the city is very expensive too if you compare with other cities in europe.

    Insider Tip:Worth buying the Paris Museum Pass, is very practice! Set aside a day just for the Louvre and a day just to Versailles, because these places are so BIG!

    Twe weeks in Paris

    We enjoyed our stay in Paris. We saw the major tourist attractions, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Musee d'Orsay, Sacred Coeur Basilica, Champs-Elysees, Notre Dame, Sainte - Chapelle, Arc de Triomphe, Palace of Versailles and about a million cafés. After seeing and enjoying them, we think we had the Paris experience and would not have to go back... Having said that, we did really enjoy experiencing the city.

    Insider Tip:DO NOT rent a car in Paris. If you are doing a trip out of Paris in a rental, take transit out of the city to rent. Trying to drive through the city centre reminded me of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.

    Beautiful city - however be careful of pickpockets!!!

    Tourist attractions were amazing, Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, Love Lock Bridge etc however they were slightly ruined by people trying to sell you souveniers (almost to a point you felt uncomfortable). BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL ON PUBLIC TRANSPORT. I almost had my purse stolen when I was coming up on the escalator, however the girl was not quick enough before I turned around. Public transport was an excellent way to get around. Very expensive - prices more than London. Food was great.

    Insider Tip:Make sure you research where your hotel will be in Paris, as we booked at the last minute without reading the reviews and ended staying in the most dangerous places in Paris (Saint-Denis), luckily however nothing happened to us while we were there.

    Amazing City with Good Food and Unparalleled Culture!

    One of my favorite cities in the world, Paris has everything going for it. Great food pretty much everywhere and lots of shopping. Make sure to check out Le Vallee outlets a stop away from Disneyland. All the main tourist spots are also worth going to, especially the Eiffel Tower which looks better in person!

    Insider Tip:Use the city bikes provided all around the city - cheaper and faster to get to places enjoying the streets of Paris!
