This section, entitled “Interesting Paris Facts” will aim to bring you various tidbits about Paris that are either informative, fun to read about, practical advice or all of the above. Occasionally, you may even find news items here if they affect Paris travelers' focal points of interest.

In the long run, I anticipate that this section will grow into an all around collection of “did-you-know’s” that will enrich your Paris visit through interesting Paris facts usually not conveniently found all in one place.

I will continuously add useful facts here as they come to mind or as I bump into them. And you can help! I first heard about the huge lines at the opening of the Quai Branly museum, not from any official source, but in casual conversation with a fellow Paris traveler. So, share what you know…
