"The whole centre of Paris is..." Paris Tourist Trap Tip by starchaser

Paris Tourist Traps: 438 reviews and 343 photos

The whole centre of Paris is one enormous tourist trap during the high summer season. Paris is less of a tourist trap in the spring or winter. Early spring is probably the nicest time to visit. But to be quite honest with you, I found Paris to be highly over-rated. Sure, the sights are nice, but then, so are the sights in Vienna, London, Berlin, Munich, Prague etc etc. Dont go with preconcieved ideas of 'romantic' Paris - you'll be dissapointed. If you want a romantic getaway to France, head instead for the countryside in Languedoc , Provence and elsewhere.
