Paris is more than the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre. It is a vital and beautiful city. It is a symbol of fashion, food and revolution all in one. The highest compliment I can bestow is that Paris is one of those cities that you can't know just from browsing monuments and a week of wandering around.

The City of Romance. *sigh* Yes, it is touted for its kissing lovers, pondering artists, stunning architecture, and delicious food, but Paris is a contradiction of itself in many ways. You are as likely to see a beret-topped artist on the river Seine as you are a savvy thief at the foot of Sacre Couer who will rip you off for everything you've got. Freshly baked baguettes contrast with the sewage smell near parts of the river; graffiti sprawls across bridges while centuries old Gothic cathedrals rise into the sky, topped with crumbling gargoyles. Shady characters linger in the subways; smartly dressed elites sip wine on streetside cafes. But the creme de la creme is a summer evening spent lying on your back in the Eiffel field, staring dreamily up at the richly lit Eiffel Tower in the company of a dear loved one and a bottle of wine. The city is filled with art, culture, and surprises: make sure you experience each one.

I didn't want to love Paris. It seemed like such a cliche.
But the truth is, in reality, Paris really is amazing, spectacular and everything people say it is.
The culture from all the art, history, drama, and music is overwhelming. The food is world famous and even the grocery store cheap stuff is better than most restaurants at home.
The wide open parks, the spontaneous dancing and singing, the picnics on the bridges, I could go on and on. Go see for yourself.

The most romantic city in the world is indeed, just watch out for the dog poop on the sidewalk! Aside from the poop, Paris is charming, sophisticated and so full of itself, I mean culture that you'll need at least 5 days just to catch the highlights and longer if you really wanna a feel for the place.

Would I be exaggerating if I said that Paris is "The most beautiful city in the world"?
Probably... but it is my favorite.
Everywhere you look is stunning, the people are chic and the food is divine!
The one place a novice traveler should experience.

Every sappy cliche you hear about Paris is true - it really is one of the most beautiful, magical cities in the world. During my visit, it rained for three days straight, and even as I splashed around the city in wet shoes I thought, "This place is amazing." You can truly walk around from morning till night, snacking on croissants and coffee and crepes while you stroll, and never tire of it. Make sure to gather supplies for a picnic in one of Paris' many parks and watch people go by.Recommended for:Local Culture

Paris is a living postcard, picturesque city with lots of cafes, stylish people, and romance. There are so many things to do and see here. Although you've seen Paris many times in movies, TV, and pictures, you should still come and see it for yourself.

An absolute cliche to say it but Paris is truly one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Complaints about the locals are over hyped. Paris is one of the world's great cities. If you can't enjoy yourself here, you should probably stay at home.
When visiting restaurants, keep in mind that the French perspective is that you are stepping into the restaurant as a visitor more so than as a guest. If you set your expectations based on the assumption that the staff view you as someone who has just stepped into their home, you'll have a better perspective on how service should work. Say "hello" and ask for recommendations (they are usually right). The tourist spots can be a painful but a good local French restaurant has impeccable service if you know how to judge it and go with the flow.

The best way to find cheap Paris hotels is to turn on the Internet. Comparing the various deals will help you understand the various services and facilities. This will help you to choose the right accommodation deals at the right location at affordable rate. Besides, you can also try to make your reservation in advance, especially if you plan to travel during the spring, fall, or Christmas time when the city receives maximum number of tourists.
