Thanks to a fantastic public transport network, navigating Paris is not only straightforward but can be great fun too. Whether you choose to rent a bike and weave your way through the city, walk on-foot down cobbled streets or boulevards, hop on a bus or descend into the famous Metro system, there is always a simple solution to getting around in Paris. Public transportation in Paris

Paris is a vibrant, multicultural city that more than 2.2 million people call home. Architecturally rich, culturally diverse and endlessly dynamic, the City of Lights is also home to an enormous array of international, European and, of course, French companies. So if you are looking to move to a city with options, Paris will not disappoint.

One of the foodie capitals of the world, Paris is a haven for those who love gastronomy. The French are extremely conscious of terroir - the qualities of the land and environment in which wine or food is grown - and are selective when it comes to ingredients, dishes, cheeses and - of course - wine. No wonder the gastronomy of the French was given UNESCO status as “Intangible Cultural Heritage” in 2010! In short, Paris is a wonderful city in which to unleash your inner gourmand, whether you are an avid cook or simply a lover of dining out (extremely) well.

A centre of learning for centuries, Paris has long been a guiding light in the world of literature, art, politics and culture. If you are thinking of pursuing your studies in France and you are ready to live in Paris, here is the essential information to prepare for your stay.

While the prices of property-to-buy in Paris have risen to almost €10,000 per square metre, the Paris property market remains one of the most attractive in the world for buyers. After all, Paris will always be Paris, and any property investment made means you will never be out of options to rent out your property or find a buyer. This naturally means that competition is high and the market moves extremely quickly. Here are some key points to know if you are considering buying property in Paris.

Ma Vie en France

6 years ago

This blog chronicles my journey from the US to France. From a bartender to an au pair. It isn't genre-specific, but you can find many answers to your questions here--whether you are moving abroad for the first time or if you're visiting the Provençal area. I lived, worked, and studied in the Aix-en-Provence area from September 2012 until July 2013. I au-paired for a local family and lived with them. The kids I watched were 3, 11 (triplets), 13, and 14. I love my host family and am lucky to be close to them. We are still deeply connected though I have moved back to the states. There are also posts about my travels in France and the surrounding areas. Please message me if you have any immediate questions. I'm here to help!

Halt, Salute and...

I've spent years being the devoted Pony Mum, driving daughters and equines all over Ireland and being a helper and organiser at horsey events of all types. Now the daughters are grown up, but instead of suffering from Empty Nest Syndrome, I'm just landed in Provence to embark on a new adventure with my horses, dogs and Long Suffering Husband. Join me as I creak and groan my way across two countries, into my sixth decade and beyond!
