There’s no right or wrong way to be a tourist in Paris. That said, a couple of pieces of advice from experts can always come in handy to make the most of a visit to the city.

Let’s look more closely at Volgaleoni’s recommendations on the things you should avoid doing in Paris and explain why they may be worth following or ignoring.
