Girl in Paris, general questions

by Bentee


I'm thinking about going to Paris in the summer for a couple of days. Probably from June 28 to the 3rd of July.
I'm 17 and I'll be traveling alone so I was wondering what areas are the safest to stay. And if at all it is safe for me to go alone and be out on the streets etc. And what places I should avoid.
I read about the pickpockets and the people with their tricks etc. I think I'll be able to handle that. Are there other things to watch out for?
Also what places are really worthwhile visiting?

Unless you plan on seeing the outskirts of Paris, the so-called Banlieues, the usual precautions will do, no matter where exactly you are going to stay.

Seeing the Sacre Coeur in Montmartre was a bit of a hassle when I was in Paris, but perhaps the situation improved somewhat. Getting to and from the airport is a drag too, but isn't this almost always the case?

Since you are going to stay for only a couple of days, you'll already have trouble seeing all the main sights. What really is worthwhile visiting depends on your personal preferences. Get yourself a map of Paris, read the tips here on vt, mark the places that sound interesting on your map, and then make a list. I'd also add some serious time for just "hanging around and watch people passing by", prefereably at river Seine or Boulevard Saint-Germain.

I've lost count the amount of times I've visited Paris on my own. You will definitely be fine :) As has already been mentioned, the usual precautions apply no matter where you are. Don't wander around by yourself late at night, don't be naive/gullible etc.

If you are planning to fly, check the rules as some airlines do not permit minors (ie persons under 18) to travel alone and some countries (like mine, Portugal) do not permit minors travelling alone to enter or leave, except with certain conditions!

If you are travelling by train, it shouldn't matter.

Check also your hotel in advance.
Some do not accept minors without a parent's permission.

Travel Tips for Paris

Expatriates Telephone Search Engine

by balisunshine

Expatriates Telephone Search Engine.

It's one of a kind. An engine based on placing international calls from international locations, not just from the United States as most telephone search engines are programmed to do. It gives you the calling code instructions from each of the world's nations to any other nation. In addition this engine allows you to search every on-line telephone directory in the world. (Over 700 directories) Plus it gives you an instant link to all of the embassies of the nation you are calling, the lowest international rates for your call, and a link to that countries voltage for those who are planning on traveling or relocating to that nation. We designed this engine with expatriates in mind, but it will work for anyone.

La Butte-aux-Cailles - 13e arr.

by Bigjones

I really like this part of Paris located in the 13th arr. close to Place d'Italie. When you walk there, you don't have the feeling that you're in Paris but in some French village : little houses along narrow cobbled streets, little market, little restaurants, tiny bars and always a great atmosphere, esp. at night when all the tiny bars are overcrowded with cheerful people.

Parisien Street Signs

by barryg23

Parisian street signs are beautiful and are as much a symbol of the city as are wide boulevards and elegant squares. The basic form has remained the same since the mid 19th century. The street names are also usually very interesting, most named after prominent people, not always French

Speak a little french

by Nexus7

If you try to speak a little french to the locals they tend to open up a little more. If you walk into a shop in Paris and they say 'Bon Jour', don't say 'howdy' back. They just don't like that. They are generally much more friendly if you at least try not to be ignorant.

When in Paris etc....

by Zanee

As for clothes, I'd say dress up a bit - It's a stylish city and you feel more a part of it- rather than being just another flouro-clad tourist . I wouldn't be caught dead in 'leisure wear' anyway - I'm sure 'normal clothes' are just as comfortable:-). Thin layers are a good idea here , so you are prepared for all eventualities - and don't take too much , the same skirt /trousers can be worn for a few days - no-one will shout " hey , weren't you wearing that yesterday?"
