Paris is considered as a quite safe city. You can wander in almost every district with a very low risk of mugging. However, some areas are safer than others.

Paris is generally considered to be one of the safer cities in Europe and a very safe one to visit, and most travelers will not run into any problems. The biggest problem one may face while in Paris is pickpockets and scammers, of which there are many. Many perpetrators aim to be undetected, so direct confrontation and muggings are uncommon. Violent crime is very rare, especially in the city center. The most common targets are those with suitcases and backpacks, i.e. tourists. They are also likely to be found at any area with large crowds, such as train stations and large department stores. In order to stay safe, make sure your belongings are always safe.
