You could plan a thousand trips to the City of Lights and still have plenty left to see and do in the French capital. Whether you're a museum nut who dreams of seeing the Musee d'Orsay, the Louvre and the Centre Pompidou; an architecture fan interested in seeing Paris from the roof of the Arc de Triomphe, the Sacre Coeur in Montmartre or the Eiffel Tower; or simply an urban wanderer who revels in walking the streets of Île de la Cité, the Latin Quarter or the banks of the Seine river, you'll have it all at your fingertips. Grab a map, a metro card, and let yourself be swept up by the vibrant energy of the city. Short train rides will take you to Champagne tastings, Versailles, countryside castles, and the magical kingdom of Disneyland Paris.

    Hi Pedro!
    Where are you from? Which one mobil company you work? In France you can use Vodaphone and Orange like well in Spain. There are also another companies, like Dataphone from Télésysthèmes. But if your phone is now from one of those companies, you'll only need to adquire a local pre-paid card. If you hold a Movistar phone, then go to a movil shop, and ask for the arranged roaming deals they have. In some areas, they also rend own network services.
    Good luck!

    I lived there for an year 1/2......... It was beautiful! Guess its different when u actually reside there as opposed 2 just a visit! I toured the city & its surroundings as a resident not a tourist......so I found where to purchase thing that were less expensive! Went to the (not do good areas of Paris) which dnt think a tourist would do! My daughter went to a French school & an American school! Huge difference as to was expected ....... Poetry, Poetry, Poetry & art classes seemed to overrule the curriculum in the French school but they were taught 1hour of English everyday! I could go on & write an essay on my experience there but overall it was a great experience!

    The Eiffel tower isn't that big. Parisians are very rudes. Montmatre is nothing but a big chinese photographs parade. it sucks.
