How to Meet Locals in Paris — Citysurfing

Paris is known as the “city of lights” – a nickname that proves itself when night falls and about 300 locations city-wide continue to shine on.

There is no shortage of things to do in Paris. From visiting cafes, museums, and shopping in one of the most fashion-forward places in the world, there is something for everyone.

The most famous Paris landmark is the Eiffel Tower, and it is just as gorgeous when illuminated at night as it is in broad daylight. The best time of year to visit the Eiffel Tower is in winter until early spring – before the summer crowd comes for a visit.

Immersing yourself in French cuisine is an important part of traveling in Paris. Paris cuisine includes much more than just croissants, so save room for the Parisian delicacies such as French cheese, baguettes, and bisque. For those with a sweet tooth, there are plenty of options for you. Visit local cafes to find the best crepes, macarons, and eclairs.

It is difficult to see and do everything on your first trip, and it can be somewhat stressful getting around. That’s why hanging out with someone that lives locally is a great idea.
