"Beggars in Paris" Beggars & Aggressive Vendors Tip by stevemt

Beggars & Aggressive Vendors, Paris: 116 reviews and 58 photos


There are many beggars in Paris.

Many operate round the churches, and other tourist destinations.

Apparently in Paris it is illegal for the beggars to approach people, they risk imprisonment if they do, so they are no where as aggressive as in other countries, but they can be off putting if you are not aware of the situation.

Many have their pets with them as bait.

    I saw that in Spain as well, but it was more the gypsys, not so much the beggars that had their pets with them
