You may have spotted some unusual cars zipping by on the streets of Paris recently. Was it a car? Was it a motorcycle? If it looked like a hybrid of the two, it might just have been a “Twizy” car. These electric cars are two-seated and have an automatic transmission, making them easy to drive if you're not used to manual transmission (more common in France). A new company offers Twizy cars for rent in Paris, and you can choose from a number of different tours that you follow through the streets of Paris with the help of the GPS Audio Guide.
Intrigued by this unique way to see Paris, we couldn't resist the chance to take a Twizy out for a spin in Paris! Olivier was the brave driver. Brave in the sense that he calmly pulled out into the traffic of Paris with his mother in the back seat and after getting his driver's license only last summer. It was a little stressful – for mom and son!

A little tense with mom in the back — but if you're feeling brave, it's a fun way to see Paris! There are different tour options including essential sights of Paris in 1 hour, the Latin Quarter and night tours.
