Paris Travel Planner   Wifi Internet Connections in Paris
Hotels, cafés, even many Paris parks have wireless Internet connections for iPods and laptop computers, but there are complications...




Your Paris hotel will probably have Wifi (wireless Internet), but it may be a pay service rather than free. Check in advance if it's important to you.

Although it is not the norm in Paris cafés, some cafés do offer Wifi access, even with broadband connections suitable for video download and IP telephony.

One such café-based service is Its website has pages in various languages, including French, English, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese, but only the French-language version has full info and a list of Paris cafés offering its service, with Google Maps pinpointing their locations.

Surprisingly, many Paris parks offer free Wifi provided by the city government. Open your browser and it should go to the page that allows you to login and use the service. Often the page is in several languages, including English.

The free Wifi in Paris parks may not be working in some instances, or you may have to sit in certain areas of the park in order to obtain a strong signal. Signs near the entrances to the park may provide information on the service, and the locations it covers.
