The Connexion, an English-language French newspaper, is reporting that Paris tourist chiefs plan to "start being nice to our tourists."

According to the story, city officials are trying to rid the city of its reputation for "being rude, overbearing, unpleasant and aggressive – not to mention a little prone to conning tourists."

"Now the city’s chamber of commerce and the regional tourism committee have launched a guide for workers who are likely to come into contact with tourists – in the hope of improving the welcome," it continues.
