Introduction
Huge area of about 10 million people, head of a very centralised country. Paris is not France, but there is a lot to do and see. You may just skip the biggest monuments that will not tell you about the people who live here, and try to appreciate the diversity of the districts.

Top Things to See and Do
— If you go to the Sacré-Coeur, just skip this ugly church, go as fast as you can through the touristy Place du Tertre, and wander around the streets, down to Abbesses and Marché Saint-pierre. That is much nicer and less touristy.
— Have a rest in the Jardins du Luxembourg and stroll around the streets nearby (up north).
— Go to open markets, my favourite and closest is the one place d'Aligre, every day except monday.
— Walk along the Canal Saint-Martin, the district that is going up these years.
— Walk also along the Seine, but I'm sure you won't miss that one.
— Go to Place des Vosges and the nearby streets of le Marais, a hype district.
— If you like contemporary art, visit the high-quality exhibitions of the Centre Pompidou and Palais de Tokyo.
- If the Louvre is one of your principal targets in town, avoid visiting it in day time. The museum is opened until 9:45 pm on monday and wednesday. The best is to enter by 6-7pm and the whole display rooms, except some that are closed, won't be crowded at all. Enjoy !

Neighbor regions/States:
The problem with Paris is that it is situated in the dullest part of France. Outside town, there is not much to be seen.
- Versailles (chateau) : if you want to visit it, we can't advise you enough to go the most earlier possible in the day (by train it's easy from Paris) if you don't want just to see a crowd of tourists taking photos.
- the basilic of Saint-Denis (easy to go with RER) is the place where invented the Gothic style, and where all the french kings are (now ;-).
- If you want to see on of the most beautiful and biggest park of the area, go to Parc de Sceaux. Easily reacheable with RER B till Parc de Sceaux, Sceaux or Bourg-la-Reine. Or by bus line 128 from Porte d'Orléans (terminus Métro 4), follow the signs for line 128 (direction Robinson, don't take the 128/ limited to Dampierre); then get off at Fontenay-Houdan stop
- if you are kind on Le Corbusier, you can visit the "villa Savoye" taking RER or train till the city of Poissy.

Want more guests!
There are not so many members whithin the city of Paris, but many of the cities listed under "Ile-de-France" are very close to it and well served by public transport. So don't hestitate to check them out as well, especially the ones with post code beginning with 92,93,94.

Who is coming? Just add your user name and basic info (date and places you will visit) about your trip here, maybe other members will invite you or meet up with you on the road. Use your profile to tell more about your plans.

Hospitality Club Meetings
Pre-Monnai Paris-Party For actual information take a look at this forum thread and subscribe to it!
To coordinate our activities in Paris, we have a yahoo list you can join to be informed of our meetings... Please do not use it to ask directly accomodation, you would be banned of it. But if you want to make a meeting with us, don't hesitate !
--> Join on http://fr.groups.yahoo.com/group/hcparis/ to follow the activities of HC in the Paris area!


Notice to the members of IDF - A re-organisation of the geographic structure in the whole IDF has been done, concerning mostly corrections about town names, but also moving some members to a different town name (i.e. Pontoise and Cergy). Please report your suggestions or remarks to hc member tiziano.

If you have added some info here you can simply remove the instruction text. Thanks for helping to build this great resource!!
