Introducing Paris

Paris’ relationship with time is one of the reasons it has maintained its centuries-old charm. Anyone who visits Paris will tell you that time means something quite different there. It slows down and expands making room for things that you would normally be too busy for back home, such as endless cups of coffee or meandering walks through the city. Grand maisons still stand proud but have left some room for buildings of newer times to shine, such as the Pompidou Centre. Always a catalyst of culture, the city is witnessing a renaissance as new galleries pop up next to well-respected museums and a slew of international restaurants enter the dining scene sitting quite comfortably alongside quintessential French bistros.

Editor's Tips

  1. If you don’t speak French, learn a few phrases that will allow you to initiate a conversation, including, “Je suis désolé je ne parle pas Français.”
  2. Parisians value their Sundays. Don’t expect shops to be open, or to be able to run your errands.
  3. Bring your trendiest sneakers and walk everywhere. Paris is best seen on foot.
  4. When taking the metro, keep in mind that the system is expansive – you’ll almost always be able to find a stop very near your destination.
  5. Service is almost always included in Paris. At the bottom of your bill it will say ‘service compris’.
