Living in Paris
There’s great nightlife in Paris. For fun and good company at a reasonable price try the Oberkampf and Bastille quarters, which boast live music, cocktails “en plein air” and great food from the world over with authentic falafel, crepes, pizza, Mexican tacos and Greek pita bread and wraps.
There are of course plenty of other things to do, like having an “Aperitif” in typical river boats called “Péniches” and “pique-nique” on the banks of the river at sunset. The atmosphere is magical and will leave you with wonderful memories….
For those who prefer busier tourist areas, Montmartre or the “Quartier Latin” are ideal. You’ll love the warm, multicultural atmosphere of Saint Michel with its winding streets full of restaurants and shops, and the lights of Montmartre quarter will dazzle you. In Paris there’s something for all pockets!
