While planning a trip to Paris, you may already have certain destinations in mind. With beauties like the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre, it may seem like you’ll have plenty to keep you busy. However, once you are actually there, you may be interested in checking out concerts, the club scene, movies, or the market. Along with the historic sites, there is something to be said about local entertainment and culture. Being in a foreign country, it could be difficult to figure out the when and where on your own. If you pick up a copy of Pariscope, you’ll be ahead of the game.

A new copy of Pariscope hits all the newsstands throughout Paris every Wednesday. If you can remember when your flight lands in Paris, you can also pick up a copy of Pariscope right at the airport. For less than two Euros you can have all the city’s events for the next week at your fingertips.

Not only will you have a head’s up on any concerts and festivals, but you’ll also be able to find out about wine tastings and special brocante markets going on during your stay. If you plan on visiting galleries and museums while in Paris, it’s also a good idea to check Pariscope for their hours.

Of course during your trip you will have access to locals as well as posters and advertising on the streets, but a copy of Pariscope can definitely get you started on an unforgettable vacation.

If you’d like to get a copy of Pariscope before heading overseas, you can try contacting the French Consulate or the French Tourist Office. They may be able to tell you where the magazine is available in the United States or your respective home country.
