Never put your bag down - never take your hands off it. Even inside a cafe or restaurant. Crooks can create a diversion for 2 seconds and your gear is gone. I was surprised this trip as to how many mobile phones were being dropped in the street - with batteries and sim cards flying everywhere - this IS a diversion trick.  The Louvre was shut on certain days because there were too many pickpockets for security to handle!

Paris is a SICK place for theft. Be really really carefull and trust no-one!

Spent several weeks in Paris last year and year before and nothing happened to me or my gear. Crime in Paris is better than in Italy or Portugal. But at all times being aware of your surroundings never hurts.
