Unless you have your own transport do take an organised tour. You may well be, like me, a fan of independent travel, but the "tour" is little more than a van from the city centre to the river with a couple of photo opportunity stops on the way, admission to the river, and all the assistance you might need. There's no great advantage to doing it ...

Quite apart from there not being many (if any) discount fares to be had at such short notice at the airport, asking for a random next flight out with seats available is likely going to ring some alarm bells and get airport security (and possibly police) called in while you're asked to wait "while we check what we have available". What's the most likely ...

Airlines tend to charge full fare for last minute bookings, rather than discounting it to try and fill one more seat. The stereotypical last minute booking is from a business person, who has to be there and is flying on someone else's dime, hence doesn't mind paying whatever is asked. So there is no real motivation to discount the fares. The number of ...

So the “authentic” Paris is far more than just a living museum. To get a flavour of the variety and perhaps a better overall impression of the city I suggest: La Défense, Troisieme arrondissement, ...

If you want to experience a bit of the "real Paris". Wake up at 6 on Saturday and go to the many "Brocantes" around paris. Start with a coffee and a croissant in the nearby cafe and enjoy. The nicest things are sold in the early hours, which attracts the most colourful parisian to those markets in the early hours. You can find a listing at "evous". Search ...

There are countless places you could go but the paradox is that looking for the “authentic” side of the city is a very touristy thing to do in itself. A few ideas nonetheless: Do a visit with a Paris Greeter or a balade urbaine in Seine-Saint-Denis. Take the RER to the cité des 4000 in La Courneuve (a prominent example of grand ensemble or chemin de grue ...

From personal experience, I would recommend smartphone only, but with a power bank. Usually, I just travel around with my smartphone (Samsung Galaxy S4), with a 64GB Sandisk Ultra MicroSD Card. This can store thousands of photos. Also I have a Xiaomi Mi Power Bank(about 10400mah) which can be found for about £15 on eBay, shipped from China. Both are very ...
