Watch out!

Paris can be overwhelming to people visiting for the first time with its pollution, high costs and busy streets on contrary to their high expectations, tight schedule and plans to see hundreds of museums in a short time. โ€จIts much more enjoyable to be selective, enjoy the calm strolls along the backstreets and keep some attractions for the next time as it may take as much as 1 week to just see the most famous spots.
Just be aware of small crimes like pickpocketing and thefts in the metro and crowded landmarks
