Paris, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, is famous for its incredible architecture, rich past and historical sights. However, nowadays it is highly recommended to use modern apps on your devices to make your trip perfect. They could make your trip easier and be really helpful in some situations (as long as your device is fully charged of course). Don’t forget that Paris is a large metropolis and it is easy not only to get lost there, but also to overpay for different services. To avoid such situations, check the following list of the most essential apps for every Paris tourist.
The first thing that every tourist comes to Paris for is, of course, to see the sights of the city. For that, MyCityHighlight is just irreplaceable. It provides you with the most essential and useful recommendations for the most famous tourist attractions, cafes and shopping malls in the French capital. Moreover, tourists rate every sight or place, so you can be aware of the most recent opinions and suggestions. Of course, you can also share your opinion via the app, as soon as you register. The app also provides a filter which rates the place according to your request, with sections for family-friendly locations, free Wi-Fi spots, and nightlife. You can even choose the best places depending on the weather.
For those who plan on visiting some other cities besides Paris, or just do not want to move across the city on foot or by bike, we suggest downloading this useful app. The official app of the French train system works faster than the company website. All you need is to choose the exact train station in the city, after selecting “Paris” in the city section. It is very easy to find train arrivals and departures using this app, and it also lets you buy tickets.
Many French do speak English, but not everybody. They are more likely to speak French or to pretend that they do not understand your English. It’s not because the locals do not like English; they’re just very proud of their language. Therefore, using French in your everyday conversations will provide you with a positive reaction from locals. There are thousands of dictionary apps, but this one is arguably one of the best. It is also perfect if you are searching for verb conjugation tables.
If you come to Paris, The Vélib’ bike system is a must-try. Locals are crazy about biking, and to feel the atmosphere of the capital, we suggest riding a bike like the locals do. Prepare yourself and download this app before you come to Paris. It provides you with information on where to find a bike, the amount of free bikes at every station and the prices for renting one.
