1. Going into the store, restaurant or bar, be sure to say “bonjour” or “bonsuar” (in the evening), and then you can speak in any languages. Locals always like to start conversation with greeting in their native language.
2. If the table in the cafe served it means that here, you may order lunch or dinner. If you found same cafe tables without cutlery, it’s mean that you can enjoy a cup of coffee and a chat with friends.
3. In typical French restaurants have time for lunch. At this time the restaurant is closed and all the staff out to dine or relax. Typically, this time from 2(3)p.m to 6(7)p.m .
4. Taxi drivers have 4 rates: 1) daytime in Paris; 2) daytime, but out of Paris; 3) night time in Paris and 4) night time – out of Paris. So do not worry this is not the “two counters”.
5. Always save the ticket until the end of trip. You may meet controllers in the transition, between the stations, in the train or on the way out. A fine is 37 EUR, if you traveling without ticket.
6. Subway is closed on 0:40, but if you missed a train, you may use the night bus. All buses are covered the whole of Paris and major suburbs.
