Of course Paris classic and timeless beauties are a must see. But the City of lights is so much more than the Eiffel Tower or Louvre Museum. So dare to be dazzled. Don't shop at the Champs Elysées and but find more trendy local shops. Don't stay stuck on the left bank, when you can encounter the genuine soul of Paris on the left bank around Belleville, or the canal Saint Martin.
Paris in the summertime is so very dreamy but also so very expensive. We really recommend you to come to Paris in June, September and October. Smaller crowds, sunny weathers and more affordables prices. All the perks without the inconvienients. Anyway if you want to enjoy Paris best, do avoid the biggest trade shows/exhibition like Paris Fashion Week, Paris Air Show and Motor Show
The booking for your hotel depends on the vibe you want to feel while visiting Paris. For the bling bling and shopping then the 8th arrondissement is perfect, for a dolce vita feel the 19th arrondissement around the Bassin de la Villette is an experience. The 18th is the most romantic place.
There are 2,000 hotels in Paris and a plateform such as Airbnb offers 60,000 rentals in Paris. Choice is up to you. With a rental you will be more independent with no schedule to stick to. If you want to be taken care of hotels are your option. In hotels, you will have the opportunity to eat meals in the restaurant or with its room service. If you do not want to cook, it can be an advantage. For your peace of mind, and cheaper fees, just make sure to book your hotels well in advance (particularly if visiting in summer)
Like any other major cities around the wold, the city of lights offers gluten free options. Sweet, sour, only veggie, only fruity, delicious smoothies like La Cabane Belleville, I, personally recommend, you get plenty of choices to eat good and well
Paris loves music. From classic, to rock or french music, you'll get your fill. Music is performednot only in concert venues, but also outdoors, in parks, gardens, train stations , especially during summertime.
They are, most of the time, more interesting and authentic, if you are an history and architecture lover. Showing Paris genuine side is our specialty.
Paris is very pet-friendly the city is. Dogs in Paris are allowed on all public transport including the metro, the subway, the commuter trains ( except the Eurostar) and buses. Service dogs can travel for free on all forms of transport, and large dogs need a ticket to travel. Just make sure your pet has all the necessary vaccines before coming to Paris
We know, French people can be very difficult, haugthy and making little no zero efforts to speak English, as they consider the effort should be on YOUR part. But cross my heart, hope to die, once you get over that first defiance examination and bitchy attitude, they are indeed endearing.
