    Paris, Ile-de-France, France
    Go to the tourist information. They can book amazingly cheap accomodation for you, and they are one of the best Tourist Info's in Europe. It is near the Arc d'Triomph at Charles De Gaulle Metro. ( NOT Champs Elysees metro even though it is on that street- it is a very long street!!!) A visit to the outdoor markets followed by a picnic under the Eiffel Tower is highly reccomended. 3 Ducks is overpriced and not very clean, but if you are up for a party and meeting other travellers, this is your hostel. Better to go to Tourist Info and book into a cheap hotel if you are on a budget. We got a room with private shower but shared toilet for 17 Euros (for the whole room!) whereas the hostels averaged 22 Euros (per person!) If you go late to the Louvre (I think after 3pm) you get in at a discounted rate. Well worth it if you are just into seeing a couple things. Anyways one of my all time fave cities- you'll love it!

    When visiting the Eiffel Tower try to go in the early evening as the queues are alot less at this time. Also on Friday evenings you can get into the Louvre for free if you're under 25.

    Paris, Ile-de-France, France
    Grab a Metro pass for however many days you need at the airport when you arrive. It's an easy enough system to understand. Also it's nice to just walk. As a female traveller I felt safe enough. Obviously didn't take stupid risks and was aware of my surrounds but there were always enough people around. Also grab a museum pass as it helps to skip the lines - or at least be in the shorter one. There is also a group of open topped buses where you buy a 24 hr pass and can hop on and off and they have 4 routes covered under the same ticket, with headphone commentary.

    Paris, Ile-de-France, France
    A must-see attractions are Tour de Eiffel, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame, Les Invalides and optionally Jardins du Luxembourg and Gare de l'est. You can save a great deal of money if you buy souvenirs from the street sellers. Usually, they are the same quality as the "original" ones, but much cheaper. And you can bargain ! Avoid buying the souvenirs at the local souvenir shop in Tour de Eiffel because it is expensive. Generally, Paris is beautiful in it's every aspect. The hotel Formula 1 in Porte de St. Ouen is really cheap and the commodation is ok. Travel by metro, because it's cheap and fast, it's about 5 € for the whole day. But, of course, you should try to see the most of it by foot.

    Paris, Ile-de-France, France
    If you're visiting Paris try staying in Vincennes. it's only a metro ride away, and the hotels are much less expensive. The fortress there once housed the Marquis de Sade, and Vincennes also boasts France's largest zoo (now within the Paris limits since the latest re-drawing, but still the Zoo de Vincennes) and a lovely forest, le Bois de Vincennes. There are many delicious restaurants, and the locals in general do not have the same distaste for Americans that I saw in Paris proper.
