Gay Guide Paris
Paris is famous for its breathtaking architecture and cultural lifestyle, thanks to the many museums and theatres as well as the romantic historical centre on the river Seine. Each year over 36 million tourists visit the French metropolis. Paris is a cosmopolitan and extremely tolerant city, open to the gay and lesbian lifestyle. Here you will find everything on offer: from bars, gay saunas, sex clubs or other meeting places for gay men. The annual Gay Pride is one of the largest of its kind in Europe, where even the gay mayor of Paris is a participant. Discover and enjoy the exciting gay life of Paris, until recently only in the "Marais" area, where most of the initial gay places were to be found. Nowadays the gay scene is spread out throughout the city. Even though the bars are often open until the early hours of the morning, take into account that the Métro (underground) has no service between 1am and 5.30am and a taxi or night bus is the alternative. Even though the weather is sometimes somewhat grey and rainy, Paris remains one of the more important travel destinations for gay men.
