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.
Paris is wonderful. I just finished backpacking across Europe for 5 weeks and it is my favourite place! Try the Berthillon gelato on the Island. Accept no substitutes...it is the best stuff you will ever eat. Also try a Chocolate Crepe with real chocolate (not Nutella). It may be on the menu as Crepe du Chocolate du Maison. And try to speak some French! The locals will laugh with you, try to help you and overall be friendlier. Oh, and watch for the dog poop on the sidewalks!
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.
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.
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.
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.
