Asthmatics going to Paris - how much smoking is there now?

Jump to last reply

There are a few older topics that have Smoking and Paris in the title, but I was looking for more current information.

I'm going to Paris in June 2014 with my mother, my daughter (age 12), and my niece (age 11). My daughter and I are very sensitive to cigarette smoke, with uncontrollable coughing that can lead to very serious asthma attacks. I'm wondering whether we'll be able to have the quintessential experience of sitting at an outdoor table. Are there non-smoking outdoor spaces at any cafes/restaurants or are they all smoking areas by default?

I know smoking inside restaurants is not allowed, but don't they open their windows during the summer? If there's smoking on the terrace and the windows are open, doesn't the smoke go right into the dining area?

Thanks so much for any response - I've been reading so many helpful posts and, particularly, trip reports that are helping me plan our activities - I really appreciate this forum.
