We went to Paris one Christmas (24-25-26 December) and I was rather shocked to see the city totally empty, all shops closed.
Then, we wanted to taste French croissants. No way, impossible to find them anywhere! Christmas day, 6:45am at the 3 bars in the area we were, asking for croissants they all told me “Ils sont finis!” (we don't have any, sold out, at 6 f*©k¡ng 45 in the morning of Christmas day!). And then this is gold: “do you want a baguette instead?” ’cause you know, that's the same thing…
Usans ( = Americans) should not expect much in places where English is nor spoken.
Our visits to Paris are "pelerinages of francophile foreigners". My main targets are gardens and public greenhouses; my husband's, sites of attempts, failed or successful, on the life of historically important personalities, and sites of assailants' execution; for both of us, savoring of made-in-France specialties and the uniquely amalgamated francojapanese cuisine of fish and oeanic products, available so far only in Paris.
We were there 2 weeks ago... there are parts of paris were it is not clean like any major city, there isnt any glare when you take a photo of the m.lisa as you cant use a flash...
Try to speak some French.. they are sympathetic when you do.. most places do speak english.. I'll be on Paris tomorrow
Using a photo of a woman from a protest against domestic violence to show that French women are not as beautiful as portrayed in movies is not the best idea...👏
I think your article dreadful. You sound like the gutter press all on the negative. I am English now 68 Paris holds the same charm for me now as it did when I was 21. I spent the weekend there returning yesterday. Every French person I met was charming and helpful from the hotel clerk to taxi drivers to meals. I won't be reading any of your nonsense again. We live in a turbulent world and need positivity. Book a ticket on line if you don't want to queue. Easy
I was in Paris the last 2 weeks of March of this year. The daffodils were up and the trees were starting to bloom. It was pre tourist season so the crowds weren't too bad. We purchased a 6 day museum pass before we went and got a metro pass when we arrived. These tips were in a pocket guide book and proved very helpful. Also learning a few words of French ( to show respect for my host city) helped immensely in our day to day transactions. Parisians were wonderful. Very friendly and helpful. Maybe it was partially due to us being polite, friendly and respectful
If u have to be told to be polite when u go abroad, maybe u should just stay home. I mean, really!. Sil vous plait and Merci go a long way in making your Paris holiday amazing!
As far as the trash in the streets, well it is s a city with a few million people. What would u expect? It's not a Friggin theme park! I'm going again in 2021 for a month. I want to experience a flanneur Paris. Such a beautiful city!
They are extremely rude if you can’t speak enough French!!!!
Dirty, smelly, very rude people, very expensive, food is rubbish
We loved Paris. The people were very friendly and helpful. The hotel staff, restaurants nd cab drivers too. We had booked online so did not have to wait in long queues. The Palace, Gardens were beautiful. The food was good too except the louvre was too crowded
People have different points of views, whether it's good or bad let the comments keep on coming.. those remarks through their personal experiences can help other people know on somehow how to overview a certain place as their personal guide.
We took our two kids several years ago, and had an amazing time! I did speak some French, which made it a little easier, but we didn't find anything too difficult. We are seasoned travelers, and my husband began travelling abroad at a very young age as his father was with Sabena World airlined (out of Belgium, no longer exists) and his was actually the first travel company to do tours of the Holy Land (no kidding!), so travel is kinda our heritage. I was really impressed with the tips you gave! Patience goes a long way too. And if you alter your expectations a little and not have only one ideal Paris in mind, you will have a great time! I think the advice about learning a few phrases, and at least attempting to speak a little French, is the best advice! We got more smiles and laughs with locals by trying to speak French! We got great service everywhere we went that way. Paris will never disappoint!
