Let's face it: Paris is the world's metropolitan tourist center, and as such, it's full of traps and snares that can keep even intrepid and adventurous visitors from experiencing the city in meaningful and memorable ways. What not to do? These are the things I would advise the most strongly against, as someone who lived in Paris for years and recognizes its clever snares easily. http://goparis.about.com/od/sightsattractions/tp/What-Not-to-Do-in-Paris-Top-Ten-Things-to-Avoid-When-Visiting.htm

This week I pay tribute to Alain Resnais, who died on March 1st at 91 and was one of France's most important filmmakers. With films like Hiroshima mon Amour, based on the script and book by Marguerite Duras, he helped turn me into the insatiable cinephile I am. We'll miss you.

When it comes to the street art scene in Paris, I'm tempted to use a hackneyed old ad slogan: You've come a long way, baby. http://goparis.about.com/od/parisneighborhood1/ss/Street-Art-in-Paris-Some-Fascinating-Spots.htm

In my latest post at About.com Paris Travel, I ask whether it's even feasible to try to visit Paris in two days, and offer a plethora of related tips. http://goparis.about.com/b/2014/04/09/paris-in-two-days-a-flexible-itinerary.htm

From Breton-style savory buckwheat "galettes" to nutella-drenched sweet crepes served warm on the street, there's no denying the allure of the French crepe. This week, we take a look at some of the best spots in Paris to procure one (either variety). 
Looking to warm your hands with a delicious crepe or Breton-style galette? We've got a shortlist of some of the best crepe makers in Paris.
