    Paris, like any big city, in any country, has a diverse population. Just as if you were traveling to New York Cit, be aware of your surroundings, keep your valuables close. Don't ever set your backpack/handbag down. I'm from Los Angeles, and there are just some areas you don't hang around in. That being said, I've ridden a bike through South Central L.A. with no problems. Don't look or act like a tourist, act like you belong there and have fun.

      I agree with Guyon. Paris is like any other big city - you have to be cautious. But that being said, if you follow the same rules you would give yourself for NYC, Chicago, LA, London or any other big city you will be fine.

    I answer your question about Paris because the forum does not work.
    I go frequently to the capital by bus and metro and I roam by the streets without any concern. Paris is a large city and you must be cautious : have few cash (cash providers are everywhere), keep your portfolio hidden, have the credit card and the passport out of it, do not speak at loud voice to show "I am a tourist and I have cash in my pocket", avoid empty streets, do not choose an accomodation in the suburbs or the periphery because it is cheaper but when you are back at night ...
