Paris in November

I'm a planning a trip to Paris with my sister, sister-in-law (who speaks french), and two good friends. I've been preparing for this since last October. Having read countless travel books and consulted many magazines, I'm afraid it has left my head spinning in a whirlwind. Does anyone has any advice when dealing with the parisians, getting around the city, packing, or anything else that may prove useful?

For Paris, France...hold on TIGHT to your purse, especially if riding any of the Metros.

It's a great city, but small gangs of roving Eastern Europeans can spot a tourist a mile away and they are well trained to pick your purse or pocket.

Buy the paris ticket that covers many attractions -- well worth the money. Also the metro is very easy -- buy the Paris visite -- rather than buying one trip at a time. Make an attempt to learn a few phrases in French (ordering a drink, etc). Parisians are very gracious, I have found, if you are making an effort. Greet storekeepers, retail salespeople immediately upon entering a place of business (bon jour). We're going to Paris in November too, can't wait! Be sure to walk to the top of Notre Dame -- its a separate ticket -- meets on the outside of the building. You can get wonderful pictures from the top.
