Getting the Most from your trip to Paris

“Take it slowly”

Paris is beautiful; let the magic of the place sink in. Don’t rush or be in a hurry; take it all slowly. Whether you are enjoying a view or drinking something, savour the moments.

Learn these two expressions: à emporter (AH ahm-por-tay) and sur place (SUHR plass).  These two expressions would help you out whenever you visit the small, enchanting bakeries, filled up with delicious smells and flavours.

When you travel, you often have to walk. Yes, you will be going on a coach, but some places are more fun on foot than on a vehicle. So, make sure you bring comfortable shoes.

Be careful on the sidewalks! Most of the paths in Paris are narrow, and people often rush by. Don’t stop too suddenly in front of a shop, so that the people around you don’t collide into you.

The law provides some image rights to the locals. So, before taking photos at any boutiques or vendors, be sure to ask them first.
