While the violent protests in the French capital Paris and the mountains of garbage on the streets are making tourists from all over the world nervous, according to the French, there is no negative situation, in fact, more tourists have officially started to be welcomed.
Despite all the negative developments and protests, the number of tourists is expected to increase, while tourists coming to Paris are expected to increase by 13.7 percent compared to 2019 and 60.7 percent compared to last year before the coronavirus outbreak.
In the French capital Paris, where thousands of people took to the streets again against the pension reform, protesters attacked La Rotonde, one of President Emmanuel Macron's favorite restaurants. The historic La Rotonde, frequented by celebrities including the famous Spanish painter Pablo Picasso, was where Macron and his team celebrated his election victory in 2017.
