After leaving your vacation rental the first stop is to go to a newsstand and pick up a copy of the English Pariscope. It costs less than a euro and contains all the week’s events taking place in Paris as well as places to visit, nightlife, restaurants, etc. Next, try out one of the tours. Waytostay highly recommends the Segway Tour. It’s a fun and easy way to explore Paris, and you can zip around to the Eiffel Tower, Napoleon's Tomb, the Louvre Museum, the Arc de Triomphe, Ecole Militaire, the Rodin Museum, Les Invalides, Place de la Concorde, the Orsay Museum, Assemble Nationale and La Madeleine. It’s a good idea to do a tour at the beginning of your stay so you can familiarise yourself with the city. You should then sample the local food. Try a classic French baguette or croissant. With regards to tips in France, they aren’t expected but you can leave some loose change. Note: when ordering it is useful to know simple words, such as, s’il vous plait = please, merci = thank you, l'addition s'il vous plait? (pronounced "ladissyown sil vou play" ) = may I have the bill please? For the perfect end to the evening be near the Eiffel Tower at 9pm when they turn thousands of flashing lights on for 10 minutes, it’s an amazing sight and very romantic. This happens once every hour from 9pm-1am. If you are lucky enough to be there on New Year the lights flash all night long.
