How many days should I visit Paris for the first time?
First-time travelers should try and plan around 4-5 days—ample time to enjoy some classic Parisian highlights and visit a few of the 20 arrondissements (neighborhoods).
Can you speak English in Paris?
In Paris you may speak your native tongue at home, at work and with your friends, but if you don't speak French, you definitely need to speak English. So when Germans, Swedes, Ukrainians, and other foreign nationals visit France, they generally speak English with the locals as well.
