3.) How to Become a Parisian in One Hour

Parisians are unique and slightly peculiar perhaps; they do many things which may be perceived as weird or even ridiculous to a foreigner. However, if you want to benefit from Paris as much as Parisians do, you will need a little help, ideally from someone who clearly understands the spirit of the locals and knows how to make fun of them. How to become Parisian in one hour is a comedy in English that will show you the little quirks which make Parisians so unique. It’s a guaranteed evening of laughing, which will help you see Paris with Parisian eyes.

Amélie, the Moulin Rouge and the Sacre Coeur church; these are only three of the many reasons that should bring you to Montmartre.

Montmartre has so much to offer, and only true Parisians can show you its hidden secrets; this is why we highly recommend going on a Free Walking Tour around this wonderful area.

Then you should get on a Hop-On Hop-Off Bus: their tour around the city will show you many interesting landmarks and you can take a break from walking.
