PARISFLALTIST has created this section to give you all its personal advices/tricks you should know to live like a Parisian and avoid some “touristic trap” to get the most of Paris during your stay!

  • MUSEUMS:the right way to visit them

The City of Lights counts numerous museums and for some of them, you really have to be patient as queues are huge.

Therefore, the Paris Museum Card is very interesting as it offers you a free and direct access to more than 60 museums and is valid for 2 ,3, 4 or 6 consecutives days at a very competitive price.

Most part of museums are FREE the first Sunday of the month. Nevertheless, we highly advice us to be there very early and avoid long queues.

THE LOUVRES

It remains the MOST VISITED museum in the world and the biggest museum in Paris and the queue is sometimes so huge that one has to renounce.

To avoid any frustration and be sure you will visit the Louvres, PARISFLATLIST strongly advise you to purchase your eticket before your stay.

Also, few tourists also know that LOUVRES has many entrances... not only the main one in front of the Pyramid, so if you have already your eticket, the entrance Richélieu under the archs inbetween metro exit Palais Royal and the pyramid is for your reserved.

If you have not bought your e-ticket neither a Museum Card, you have to be patient :

-avoid the PEAK HOURS: prefer lunch time between 12H00 and 13H30 and the early moring at 09H30 as soon as the Museum opens.

ENTRANCE :prefer to go through the Galerie du Caroussel du Louvres=the shopping mall entrance (at 99 rue de Rivoli)-an other entrance for the louvres. It will lead you directly under the Pyramid so will make you save some time if there is a queue on the Pyramid entrance side.

VISIT LOUVRES BY NIGHT: the museum is open until 21h45 all wednesday and friday and is much more quiet.

PLEASE NOTE:

-THE LOUVRES is closed on TUESDAY and public holiday:1st January, 1st May and 25th December.

-Every sunday of each month, from October to March, the entrance is FREE for ALL VISITORS.

-young people from Europe aged 18 to 25 do NOT pay but have to show their ID and proof of residence.

disabled and their accompagnying do not pay

EIFFEL TOWER

If you are coming to Paris, you might surely admire the stunning Dame de Fer!! You can choose to buy your tickets directly on the counter under the Eiffel Tower. It is opened 24/24 from 09H30 to 23H00 and even to midnight during summer. Though, you might be very suprised to see the huge waiting queue (from 45 to more than 1 hour!)…so PARISFLALTIST advices you different options:

-the best one is to BOOK YOUR TICKET ON LINE at least ONE month in advance (or even TWO if you have planned to come for the Xmas Time)=you can select a date of your choice and timing and reach directly the counter for those who alreday have a ticket!Be careful to strongly respect the timing as those tickets are NOT refundable.

Visit it BY NIGHT: as written up, Eiffel Tower is opened until 23H00 and midnight, so if you go there towards 19H00, you will benefit from the stunning night atmosfere as it sparkles during 5 minutes lights up every hour!

USE THE STAIRS instead of the LIFT (only up to the second level) as you will save money, time and preserve your body!!

 

  • WHERE TO GET THE BEST FREE PANORAMICAL VIEW OF PARIS?

If you are coming to Paris for a very short stay and do not have time to do queue either on Eiffel Tower or Montparnasse Tower, PARISFLALTIST advises you alternativers:

Printemps Haussman nine and last floor terrace: you can whether eat there or have a coffee or simply profit of the amazing breathlesse 360 degrees view of Paris on its opened terrace: Opera district, Madeleine Church, the Sacred-Heart and the Eiffel Tower….

Hyatt Regency: it is actually the highest sky scratch Paris’ and  it offers a without breath view at its 34h floor where you have a bar at 120 meters with a view of Paris at 360 degrees!

Park of Belleville on Rue Piat: this park, often unknow by tourist but very appreciated by Parisians, situated up to Belleville  offers an original, and quiet unknown, view of Paris

  • TRAVEL BY CARif you are travelling by car or have rented a car during your stay and want to park it outside; the are 3 ways of paying your parking ticket at the timestamp:

– by credit  card.

– by « Paris Carte » that has replaced the former «Carte Monéo ». It is a prepaid smart card that allows you to pay your parking directly on the ticket machine and most of tabac offices sell them.

-P phone= since July 2015, the new apply for phones

Now, Paris’ Commune has limited the parking for visitors at 2 hours. Please avoir the MARAIS district as it is quite impossible to park

  • TAXIS

Parisian taxi are easily  recognizable thanks to their «hat» on their roof.

When the light is red, it means it is occupied.

When the light is green, it means it is available.

Please note that “normal taxis cars” can charge a maximum of 3 people for security reasons as they are not authorized to let a passenger sit in front (=next to the driver)

Therefore, if you are travelling with more than 3 people and/or with many lugages, we recommend you to prebook a taxi that will give you a proper car model

There are many different taxis compagnies, but be careful of the FAKE ones, especially  on airports and stations site!!

    We had a wonderful time in this sunny penthouse apartment. Nadia was helpful and responsive to all my questions, both before our trip and once we were in Paris. The apartment is very nicely equipped and charmingly decorated, with plenty of personal touches that would not be possible in a hotel. The light filled greenhouse-like dining room made the perfect place to enjoy breakfast, and plan our day, while watching the clouds come and go overhead. The kitchen is small but filled with anything you might need to make a meal and it comes equipped with a nifty European clothes washer/dryer - that, once you align the dial properly, both washes and drys your clothes in a single appliance. The bedrooms were comfortable and quiet. While the bath was very nice, all lined in marble, with a separate loo for the toilet and an additional tiny sink, this came in quite handy since there were five adults in our group. The one drawback was the sofa bed, which is not comfortable as a bed or as a sofa - it's too soft seat cushions unfold to make a very soft bed mattress directly on the (hard) floor. There is a sort plank across the front the sofa at the floor level that made it quite uncomfortable to sleep with your head towards the back of the sofa, sleeping with your head at the foot of this "bed" was better, but not great. Otherwise the salon was a really pleasant room, filled with books and magazines, as well as a TV - where we gathered each evening to discuss our options for the next day. We did have one glitch in that the toilet started to leak after a few days, but this problem was handled in the nicest way -...

    We had a wonderful stay at Nadia's apartment. I was able to communicate very easily with her about our stay, and prior to us coming she emailed a detail list of things to know, like the directions, keycode, local supermarket opening hours, etc. which was very helpful. The place is spacious and warm, and feels like coming home. We have an 11 month old and were able to have our dinner and wine without disturbing our son sleeping in one of the bedrooms. The outside patio is beautiful and feels very private. The location is great, away from the busy and touristy center with a more local feel. There is a great bakery just down the street, as well as two supermarkets close by. It takes about 20 minutes by metro to go "downtown", with the metro stop (Dausmenil), which is a block or so away. Nadia helped us get a cab to the airport and even paid the $5.00 reservation fee for us, which was very nice of her. All in all, I will never choose a hotel room over an apartment again, and am a big fan of bnb. We hope to return to Paris someday, and would for sure want to stay in Nadia's place again.

    Nadia and Tony were easy to communicate with, in e mail and on the phone, and they English very well. They accommodated some special requests we had based on our specific travel agenda. We were personally welcomed to the apartment, and shown all the particulars. The apartment had everything you might need, and was as nice, spacious, bright, and airy as we imagined. It is perfectly located for exploring Paris on foot, or by subway. The local community is also lively and has all the shops, grocery, and restaurants when you just want to stay local. We found the bed to be very comfortable and the bathroom and shower relatively spacious with good water pressure and temp. All in all we had a great time and highly recommend this accommodation. For us it was our first visit to Paris and our fifth wedding anniversary and we just loved it. Thanks Nadia and Tony for a great visit!!! Ralf and Arisleyda   STAMFORD/CONNECTICUT/US-JUNE 2015

It is within 2 minutes walk from the Metro station Cardinal Lemoine and there are many restaurants and cafes nearby, and a supermarket located around the corner. Whilst the apartment is rather small it quite suited our needs as we were out and about for most of each day. Would definitely request this apartment for future visits to Paris.

The key drop off and pick up was seamless and made the experience that much more enjoyable. The terrace is amazing - we spent a lot of mornings and evenings just taking in the sights and sounds of the city. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property and Nadia was a dream to work with.
