Tickets


It is recommended to buy tickets to the main attractions in advance. Not only because they are very popular but also due to the Coronavirus restrictions.

Restaurants and Cafés Tipping


Tipping in France's restaurants or cafés is not a must. However, it will be kind to tip 5% - 10% of the meal's bill if you are satisfied with the service.

Try to Learn Basic French


The Parisians will not expect you to know French, but few basic words will show goodwill and kindness and therefore are appreciated by the locals.

Payments


At shops and grocery stores, prepare your means of payments in advance, Parisians tend to be impatient with delays.
