I am going to Paris for a vacation with a few friends next month. I have my driving license issued in India. Can I drive a car there with this ID? If not, will any other ID let me to legally drive a car there?
You DO NOT need/want a car to explore Paris and nearby attractions.
Paris is (relatively) small and dense and has a good subway and bus network.
As a tourist, walking and using public transport is the way to go.
Everything is accessible by public transportation, even the major attractions outside Paris, Versailles, Euro Disneyland,...
Even If you want to do a day trip to to a nearby city (for example Reims, Strasbourg, Anger, ... ) Using the train will be cheaper and easier than driving.
