When the daily life of Parisians crosses paths with that of the tourists...Paris is one of the most visited cities in the world. Millions of people see the “City of Light” each year. Most people visit Paris during the summer months from July through August. Nearly 2.5 million travelers in July, versus 1.75 million per month in shoulder season (April-May, September-October) and barely over a million in January or February. So, if you are visiting Paris during summer, you'll see the crowds everywhere. Tourists are noticeable in Paris. There is a distinct style difference between Parisians and tourists (0:35, 2:07, 4:46). To fit in with locals some tourists leave behind sweatpants, baseball caps, flip-flops, Hawaiian shirts, denim cut-off shorts, activewear, etc. but there are always those who want to be comfortable, and who can blame them??? There are more nuanced ways to blend into Parisian culture during those hot summer months as Parisians themselves under the sun dress a little bit more relaxed. After 9 months of cold weather, Parisians are eager to take full advantage of warm sunny days by wearing comfortable and colorful pieces. Also, thanks to Instagram and social media, which expose shoppers to everything from American brands to laid back Californian style culture, there’s a wider diversity in styles seen across Paris among Parisians. The most iconic images of the Parisian woman, in their perfectly put together neutral outfits 1:39 can still be found, but they now sit alongside women showing off their latest in floral jumpsuits 1:18 and 3:12 or a jean and a t-shirt combo 3:27.
Love this music and I've heard it on some of your other videos. What is the title? I keep watching those videos just to hear the music. Will be in Paris soon and am sure I will be hearing this in my head as I walk around your wonderful city.
emma ess. it's how they put it together. I've been watching these for a while and how I can tell the difference between the home team and the tourists...the French are understated but well put together 🙌🏻 ☺️
Those lines are small. Avoid late spring, summer, early autumn if you hate lines. It is still busy at other times, less so they say London. The least popular times are usually when the weather is worse, but a there are nice clear sunny days in early spring that make visiting the city a joy.
