1. Never watch a football match by yourself. If you lost your friends or simple prefer to enjoy the EURO on your own, go to a bar rather than a fan zone to watch the match : the atmosphere will be much more friendly.
2. Be careful on the fan zones. Even if everybody is here to celebrate, a missing phone can ruin the party so pack light and don’t bring high-valued objects.
3. Watch the opening hours of the Eiffel Tower fan zone : it might be closed when a game is being played in Paris. Go to a bar instead of missing the chance to have a great evening.
4. Download « Où faire pipi à Paris ? » app. After a few beers, toilets become a coveted place : here are 200 places in Paris ranked by hygiene, areas or even comfort !
5. Alcohol is prohibited in stadiums in France, if you want a beer brave yourself because you will have to queue for a long time. Instead, enjoy your time before the match and celebrate with your friends.
