The Parisians manage to live and survive in one of the most beautiful cities in Europe so I'm sure you'll cope. However, the safety of any capital city (including London, of course) rather depends on the commonsense of the visitor. I know Paris very well and have been visiting since I was 7 years old and can honestly say I've never felt the slightest bit unsafe. I'd not choose to hang around in the banlieues but then you've presumably not got a need to.

Children? What do you expect these feeelthy furriners to do to your children, ffs? I learnt the Paris Metro at the age of 7 and my children did similarly at 8 and 9. They loved Paris and still do. At no time did I get the vaguest impression that they were about to be sold into slavery or meet any similar fate.
