If you visit Paris by foot during summer, or when the temperatures are really really high, you better take with yourself a bottle of water. The fact is that at certain landmarks the only water you can find is from streets salesmen. They sell you the water not with a 50% price increase, this is still bearable, but with prices that are a few times bigger than the ones in the store. So why pay the unneeded money?
