I just came back from Paris and felt very safe. There is an enhanced security presence, but it is very understated -- not nearly as visible as in the US. All tourist sites have security checkpoints where tourists walk through metal detectors and bags are put through X-rays.
In general, visiting a city right after a terrorist attack is the safest time because everyone -- authorities and the general public -- is super vigilant. almost 5 years ago
