Subject: Les Halles
Three years ago when we were in France, we stayed with friends who lived outside of Paris, and took a train from Les Halles to and fro. One evening, we were later than we realized and missed the train that we usually took. We had to call our friends for advice as we weren't sure which train would get us to them, and they were quite concerned that we were waiting in the station area of Les Halles. They told us what train to take and then advised us to go outside to a cafe to wait as it was not safe to be waiting at the tracks at 10 PM.

Other than this, I have always felt safe in Paris, alone or with a companion, day or night.
