I couldn’t find a discussion post for France so feel free to merge/close if needed. Visited Paris, Strasbourg, and Colmar- entirely forgot about taking pictures till I got to Colmar yesterday and the sun just started to set (9.30pm).
Everywhere seems to take chip and pin but they don’t seem familiar with contactless even in Paris. Apple Pay is accepted at some places in Paris too though. Most ATMs offer alternate languages so it wasn’t a challenge to understand anything. The waiter who served me pointed to my card and tried to tell me it was really bright, lol! It definitely stands out.
Sorry about the shitty photo- my spending skills are admittedly better than my photo-taking skills (I’ve spent far too much on food this trip)
