Île-de-France


Île-de-France Commentaires

Paris is good only to get quality French perfume. All the rest in this awful city is not worth even thinking about it.
Ahh Paris! You have to grab opportunities here or they will pass you by... make the most of everyday. Go to a jazz club, try to mingle, befriend a Parisian show puppy. Learning a language opens many doors and I guess I missed out by being a clueless foreigner. Dress well or don't bother at all. Like really, khaki shorts will not be tolerated. Paris is a little more reserved than Italian cities and a little more practical. It's still a mystery to me. Why all the hype? hmmm... to be continued.
Paris is truly a beautiful city, give yourself plenty of time to see it or you'll miss out. Travel is easy with the Paris Metro, just grab yourself a map and you'll figure it out very quickly. Never be afraid to (politely) ask questions -- the rumors about the typical French coldness is decidedly untrue, and most people will be more than willing to help! The Arc de Triomphe is breathtaking when viewed during sunset, while the Eiffel Tower is best viewed at night. Take the stairs if you're looking for a bit of a workout! Most importantly, don't be afraid to try out a little French! You'll amuse the locals a little, and they will be a lot friendlier with you and overall much more helpful! Bonne chance!
"Les trois maillets" is great only for people who love the piano. If you hate jazz, it's not the place for you. My favourite is "le Vrai Paris," in the Montmartre area, which is the real Paris. The Latin Quarter area is really too sketchy.
You could stay in Paris forever — if you can afford to — and still not get enough. I ran the whole time day and night and did not see the half of it. And remember, please at least try to speak a little French and you will be surprised how pleasant Parisians will be—don’t try and you will experience the stereotypical aloofness. My advice, buy one of those language learning cd’s at your local book store before you leave home and get the basics like “Ou se trouve le WC”, the last part is pronounced VC (Where’s the restroom.)
Paris is great! There's a fine cabaret in the Latin Quarter called "Les Trois Maillets" -- be sure to swing by. It gets crazy in the basement later at night and, frankly, just a little bit sketchy.
