Paris isn’t one of the most visited cities in the world for no reason; it is my favorite destination and I can’t help but stop in even for just a couple of days whenever I’m in Europe. There’s a certain charm about the city that I can’t quite put into words but clearly others feel it too considering how others talk about Paris. Unfortunately, I’ve also met several people who didn’t enjoy their time there and when they describe to me how they spent their time, they tell me that they “saw” Paris like it was some amusement park and that they applied the same cultural expectations you have in America to their experience. You aren’t going to experience that Parisian charm by “doing” Paris quickly, and you have to do like Parisians do and go slow and enjoy the little things.
Here are some tips that I like to give people so that they are sure to have a much better experience!
