     Take always small change with you! If you will need a public bathroom, you will probably pay 0.50 € to enter. 

     

    Remember that floor numbers aren't the same of U.S. ones. In Europe we have ground floor / floor 0. It is the corresponding of the 1st floor in U.S.!

     

     French people are nationalists: try to speak few French words. You will make them very happy!
