My husband and I were in Paris in July 2011 - we had spent a week in Spain and went to Paris mainly to be participants in the final day of the Tour du France - July 24, 2011. Paris is where my husband proposed to me two years ago. There is so much to do - but we found the red bus tour - 26 Euros - good for two days an excellent way to see the city. We also bought Metro tickets and saw other parts of Paris - Place du Concorde has very beautiful gardens. The Tour du France was a "bucket list" item and we have a fantastic time. We had booked tickets through a company in the US. What an exciting day. We had followed the Tour on tv but to see the teams in person, cycling at a very fast pace on the Champs du Elysees will remain a magical moment forever. Food is expensive in Paris and be wary of pick pockets. The people of Paris speak very good English but if you have basic French, you will get by.
We love the city of Paris and will return - hopefully to see the north and south of France.
