Let’s have a look at each district from the point of view of a tourist; also we will mention a few accommodation variants. Please, look at map of Paris to understand what we are talking about.

Разные времена года в Париже. Праздники, традиции, конкурсы и советы для влюбленных в столицу Франции
Recently, I saw the advertisement of one «romantic hotel» situated «not far from Montmartre». Actually, this hotel was two metro stations away from Montmartre, in front of the metro station La Chapelle ( 2nd line), in the middle of one of the most dangerous districts of Paris – near the North Railway Station (Gare du Nord).Tourists not familiar with Paris may choose this hotel and … at least, ruin all the impression of the city!
It’s very convenient to go in Paris by metro. There are 14 metro lines in Paris and all the stations are situated next to crossroads, so that all the most interesting tourists sights and other places of interests are reachable by Paris metro.
Notice: don't forget to buy a ticket and don’t be frugal or greedy because there are many ticket collectors / controllers in a Paris metro.
The Louvre is the most famous and the most visited museum in the world. Unfortunately, his popularity means almost inevitable queue in the entrance. Tourists can pass hours waiting for their turn! For quick access to the Louvre, not spending half a day in a queue, use our tips.

Here we’ll tell you about all the ways you can get to the centre of Paris from Beauvais airport.
The main international Parisian airport is Roissy Charles de Gaulle. The main local one is Orly. We’ll tell you about the most distant airport of the French Capital – Beauvais. It is the base for low-cost airlines, the cheapest. For example, RYANAIR flies mostly from here, but there are also other companies. It takes more time to get to the airport, and the journey is expensive and uncomfortable. But, we’ll try to explain how to deal with it.
