Useful Resources for Living in Paris

c9e42240Have you always wondered which websites and online resources the French (and in particular, the Parisians) actually use?

Whether you’ve recently moved here or you just feel a little out of touch, here are some tips:

For cheap train tickets, use Ouigo – http://www.ouigo.com/

To find out how bad the traffic is – http://www.sytadin.fr/

For second-hand furniture – http://www.leboncoin.fr/

To make new friends – http://www.meetup.com/

What’s on right now? – http://quefaire.paris.fr/

To find an apartment without going through an agency – http://www.pap.fr/

A guide for getting your head round the bureaucracy – http://next.paris.fr/

Buy your Velib tickets online – http://en.velib.paris.fr/

To find the fastest and/or easiest routes around the city – Citymapper

Also, please remember that should you need to call the emergency services for any medical reasons, in France you call the pompiers (the firefighters) by dialling 18.

For the police, it’s 17.

Jura – still so much to be discovered
