Worth Knowing

Author: Anothertravelguide.com0 COMMENTS

- Cyclists are well-respected in Paris. Maybe not to such an extent as in Amsterdam or Berlin, yet there are plenty of bikeways and where motorized traffic is not so dense, cyclists can use bus lanes, too. As almost everywhere in Europe, Paris features special bicycle rental locations - take a bike in one location and return in another. Yet, a choice of bikes usually is not very large. As a better choice for more fastidious cyclists www.anothertravelguide.com suggests PARIS VELO (Rue du Fer à Moulin). Various bicycles are available for your choice, including city-bikes, mountain-bikes, race-bicycles, etc. Riding such a bike almost surely makes you feel like a genuine Parisian...

- Calling for a taxi from a hotel to the airport on your own is the best way to avoid overpaying, as some Paris concierges (especially the ones of small boutiques) have a habit of imposing fee for their services. Here is what happens - when a taxi pulls up in front of a hotel, a folded ten euro bill discretely slides into concierge's palm, and you may just wonder then why a fare meter shows so large amount from the very moment you get in a car.
Some useful phone numbers:

Taxis G7: 01 47 39 47 39 (in English - 01 47 27 66 99)
Taxis Bleus: 01 49 36 10 10

- Most of Paris' antique shops concentrate on the Left Bank, Rive Gauche. It is one of the most charming areas of Paris - just stroll along its streets - rue l'Universite, St.Peres, rue du Bac, rue Jacob, Quai- Voltaire also rue Seine and rue Bonaparte - and enjoy. A marvelous feeling, especially in sunny days.
