Just two tips for Paris: Take a bottle of red wine, some bread, and cheese up to the top of Mont Martre to the steps of the Sacre Coeur at dusk and just gaze. And two: do a Fat Tyre night bike tour from the base of the Eiffel Tower, a great way to review everything you've seen that day as the sun sets in summer!! A truly beautiful city!
If you stay in the centre of the city you'll have no problem finding a hotel that's close to the metro. Like in any big city, some neighbourhoods are better than others. I would highly recommend St. Germain or the Marais, both of which are really charming areas in Paris -- central, easy to reach the big attractions, plus near restaurants and cafes. And they are safe for females on their own.
It was my first time in Paris in the summer of 2009. The architecture and old buildings are over whelming. La Louvre is outstanding. Go up the Eiffel Tower about an hour before sunset. Enjoy the view of this magnificent city, as it looks cleaner from up there -- otherwise Paris is very dirty. Watch where you walk and sit, even in the Metro. Wear good walking shoes that are easy to clean. There are lots of Gypsies especially in tourist areas -- just walk away. Yes, local Parisians can be rude too. Oh and some French would help but you get laughed at with Québécois French.
Paris is good only to get quality French perfume. All the rest in this awful city is not worth even thinking about it.
Paris is an extremely accessible city thanks to the metro. It would be especially helpful if your hostel location is near a metro station. If you are staying for at least 3 days, purchase a "Paris Visite" ticket which will save you time and money. Enjoy the Parisian life by buying cheese and chocolates from the supermarket which will only cost you a few euros. Take advantage of the many offered free tours and free museum entrance within the city.
I went to Paris last summer with few expectations, it was the last stop on a European vacation. I fell in love! Paris is beautiful. The Eiffel Tower was amazing especially at night with all the lights. Fat tire bike tours is a must -- four hours of touring around Paris on a mountain bike then a hour on a boat going up the Seine drinking wine! Wonderful. I only encountered two rude french people. One was on the overnight train from Basil Switzerland to Paris, the ticket guy made fun of my high pitched voice, pinching his nose to imitate me! The second was a waiter in a Paris cafe. The waiter was trying his best to be haughty, but he had a black eye and several scratches on his face and looked like he had been in a fist fight, he ended up looking silly. Everyone else I encountered was more than helpful and very friendly. Several people went above and beyond common courtesy to help when I was lost. I love Paris! Going back next year!
