Riding a bicycle is a fantastic way to get around Paris and its surrounding suburbs, however the bike paths and bus lanes are sometimes on the same stretch of road, so exercise caution. The periphery boulevard circles the city and provides a fast way of getting onto the highways when entering or exiting the city. However, beware of heavy traffic coming in and out of the city between 8-9:30 am and 5:30-7:30 pm. There are many Campanile hotels to choose from in the capital including the Hotel Campanile PARIS 11 - Bastille.
There’s so much to say about French cuisine, but to put it simply, it’s délicieux! One of the best reasons for going to the Isle of France is the restaurants in Paris. While most French people eat a light breakfast of bread, jam, chocolate, orange juice and coffee, you can find a hearty lunch or dinner in traditional French style in one of Paris’ many restaurants. For a good price and great atmosphere, visit Au Pied du Sacré-Coeur in Paris’ 18th district near the basilica in Montmartre. In Saint Germain des Prés, find yourself a delicious magret de canard (duck breast fillet) with crème brulée for dessert and you will not be disappointed.
In September, Technoparade is an electronic music festival with DJs on floats and people dancing their way down the street. For more eclectic music tastes, visit on June 21, when the whole country celebrates Fête de la Musique. The day-long party has all sorts of musicians playing outside in the streets for Parisians and visitors to enjoy. You’ll hear choirs, rock bands, rap groups and everything in between. Just a month later on July 14th celebrate the French revolution with La Fête Nationale (otherwise known as Bastille Day).
There are more dogs in Paris than there are children, with approximately 300,000 dogs.
