TRIPTIP - travel tips:
*My choice was to visit the
city of Paris on foot,
you can choose urban
transport,I didn't use it,
so I can't comment. I do not
regret my choice. I had to
mislead and when you get lost
you can discover unexpectedly
beautiful places. Paris
Architecture is amazing.
In three days I went 64 km,
I will not lie, the legs
were hurt.
