Need Advice for Female Traveling Solo to Paris

Jump to last reply

Hi. I am new to this forum. Apparently, there are some well-seasoned travelers here! I am a 50-year-old female and I want to go to Paris this fall, for the first time. I will be traveling solo, also for the first time. Some of my friends think it is a great idea. One of my friends is concerned about my traveling alone to Paris, particularly because I do not speak French. I do have mixed feelings about the trip. I am excited to see the sights, but am somewhat concerned about safety. I have also read blogs citing experiences with unpleasant attitudes regarding a middle-aged female dining alone. I love good food and wine and would want to dine in fine restaurants. Have any women here traveled alone to Paris? I appreciate any comments and suggestions. Thanks.
