I'm flying to Paris next week with my GF. We'll stay for a week and intend to use the week to know what is worth knowing, look at what is worth seeing, eat what is good and within budget. Neither of us has ever been to Paris, except as transit passengers at CDG.
So: What should foreigners see there ? What are good places to go eating decent parisian food at affordable prices ? Eiffel tower is planned, the Louvre already has its day reserved. What else is there worth seeing/eating/feeling in Paris ? Are there public transportation tickets for a week ? Does public transportation work ? Is the water from the tap drinkable ?
What should one avoid in Paris ?
Is it true that the stork brings all babies from Paris ?
