    Paris is such a beautiful city. I visited last fall for a weekend from my trip to Barcelona. I didn’t get a chance to see much because during my stay there were riots going on in the city. But I plan on going back again soon. This was a great guide. Thanks for sharing.

      Thank you Cassie. One of the cab drivers say the protest quite often. I guess Parisians don’t play LOL. We went to Barcelona too and hope you loved it there as much as we did. Thank you for taking the time out to read 🙂

      Thank you so much! I really can’t wait to go back there. It’s a special place I hope to see a few more times. Thanks Kim!

    Great guide. Paris is simply put…amazing. Every time I go I find some other nook or cranny that I missed times before. I would suggest people just relax, take it all in and GO BACK AGAIN because you can not do Paris 1-2 weeks. It take several trips to see the whole that Paris or France has to offer. Go to a cafe and just sit and people watch, enjoy a pastry and coffee or lunch. STAY OFF YOUR PHONES and enjoy your surroundings. Learn a smiggy bit of French and people will appreciate the fact you tried and OPEN UP and talk to you! Also don’t spend your ENTIRE trip on a tour. Walk up early and venture out. Walk around, take the metro somewhere and wander. Around noon head back to your hotel before it gets dark. You’ll see more then any tour could EVER show you. Like how the locals really live. Be safe and happy travels!

      I so agree with all of this Ryan. We are going back next year and I really want to take the time to SOAK IT ALL IN!
