I have been living in Paris for 10 years and never had any problem.
Nevertheless you should avoid walking at night in some areas: especially the northern part of Paris city for instance.
Some places in the suburbs can be slightly dangerous, but I'm pretty sure you'll be hosted in Paris city, won't you?
On the whole Paris is not more dangerous than Bcn imo.

Have a nice stay in Paris !

I've walked around Paris alone at all times of day and never felt any danger..

If you keep to populated areas and don't speak to much with strangers at night you'll be just fine!

Paris can be dangerous at night, near Stalingrad, La Goutte d'Or, Barbès, Cours de Vincennes, les Halles... in the metro or the RER at night too, if there are few people. But that's not the Bronx, if you take care , there's no risk

Hola Keros:

Vivo en Paris desde hace muchos años y nunca he tenido conocimiento de ningún acto de violencia grave en mi entorno.
Como toda ciudad grande, París requiere ciertas precauciones. Sin embargo te aseguro que la ciudad no es más insegura de lo que pueden ser Madrid o Barcelona. El riesgo puede aumentar en ciertas zonas periféricas, fuera de la municipalidad de París.
Yo vivo en un barrio muy central y estoy acostumbrado a recorrer la ciudad a toda hora del día o de la noche y nunca he tenido la sensación de inseguridad que he experimentado en ciertas grandes ciudades de Estados Unidos.
Te deseo un feliz viaje a París y espero que lo disfrutes muchísimo.

Just don't walk at night in some places with a map and those huge bags that scream "I'M A TOURIST" and you'll be fine

well, you may be unlucky

i am an experienced traveller and have spent a lot of time in london, moscow, new york, san francisco, russia in general. i was visiting paris for the first time this fall. while walking on the metro with a friend i was approached randomly by a black guy, who, without any warning, approached me and hit me hard in the head with his fist and caused my lip to bleed. i also suffered temporary hearing loss. the punch in itself was no big deal, what worried me though was the fact that no one on the metro station bothered to ask how i was or did anything to stop the guy (he walked away). at the same time i don't want to exaggerate. i've travelled a lot and this is the first time something like this has happened to me. just saying, you never know.

unfortunately this kind of stories could happen barely anywhere.
Crazy people exist everywhere, even if that's true that it seems that there are more in "big" cities.
But I would not call Paris unsafe, while some of the suburbs are really. But who would go there????

I've lived in Paris for 34 years (since my birth), only 2 big problems (1. A crazy boy - I mean, really crazy, direct to psychiatric hospital ! - 2. A racist attack from a group who just wanted to attack white people in the "beautiful districts".)

So, the best I can say : don't be paranoid, just be cautionious !

I've never had any problem in my life... except in Paris, near the Champs-Elysées (people who cared about my mobile phone)

But I don't think that Paris is more dangerous than other great major western cities. It often depends on luck...
