    • Visit porto area from Calvi

      Calvi Feb 27, 2015 at 12:22 AM

      hi!

      We are going to spend 3 days in north area from Corsica. We think that Calvi is good start point to visit Porto and close beaches.

      I´ve seen in google maps that Porto and Scandola are about 2h from Calvi...Is a long journey from Calvi, isn´t? I mean that perhaps go and come back in the same day from Calvi is too much...

      Could anybody give me an advice?

    • Cycling and vineyard tours in and around Uze

      Uzès Feb 18, 2015 at 12:00 AM

      Hello!

      I am visiting Uzes in September and am hoping to do some (very) leisurely cycling in the surrounding countryside and was wondering if it's fairly flat and there are any nice routes that might go past a vineyard or two?
      I'm also looking at organised vineyard tours in the area and was hoping people might have some suggestions?
      Manu thanks in advance :)

      Hi all,
      I'm going to take a taxi at 21h or so on a weekday, going from Orly to Marais.
      I've read that the rates will include some surcharge for late hour plus luggage, with prices ranging from 32 euros to 70.
      What do you think the actual price might be?

We are travelling by eurostar to Gare du Nord, we've never been to Paris before so any help would be much appreciated. We're hoping we can get to disneyland on a train from Paris & if so which area would be better to stay in.
      NB. I started to post a question earlier but got rather muddled & not sure if it worked - my computer skills are very limited, thanks for any help you can give us.

      taxi to philharmonie de Paris or Taxis to get there?

      Paris Feb 18, 2015 at 4:02 PM

      I am going to a concert at the philharmonie de Paris and I wonder if it would be better ie. safer to book a hotel as close to the philharmonie as possible?

      will it be safe to walk or is it possible to get taxi?

      or would it be possible to book hotel on the city centre and get a taxi to the philharmonie?

      I do not wish to take the underground or metro because it will be late at night

      Thank you for your ideas

    • Need help for unforgettable trip in PARIS

      Paris Feb 27, 2015 at 3:28 PM

      Hi everyone !

      I'm travelling for the first time to Paris (for 6 days) and I really would like to feel the parisian way of life!

      Do you think I should buy a paper guide or only walking in Paris would be enough?
      Should I manage to get internet there or it's well indicated and I don't need google map?
      Do you know any websites with good adresses to go out ? (local restaurant, bars, events, unusual places). Or even better a mobile app which works as a tourist guide book ?
      What do you advice me to do/eat/experience which is typical for Paris (I mean not only for tourists)?

      I've already been in Prague and I regret I didn't know some things like the oppening hours, do you have the same travel experiences as me? What did you regret to not know while you were abroad?

      Thanks for your help and any tips you have :)

      Amanda :)

      Getting to Flavigny

      Flavigny-sur-Ozerain Feb 19, 2015 at 3:39 PM

      Hello there! My son and I will be in France soon and we would like to go to flavigny. We can get to Dijon from Paris by train and from there, go to Flavigny. I was looking for tours(we love tours...more than exploring on our own) and found a half day from Dijon to Flavigny(and other villages around it) by FRANCE.COM. Never heard about "France.com" tours and was wondering if anyone knows about them...or any other tour company(tours to Flavigny and surroundings). The other option is to rent a car...we go to France very often, but never did rent a car. I am not that carefree and always super afraid of getting lost, road condition, traffic, crazy drivers, how to find a gas station, etc. If anyone knows about roads and how simple is to drive(probably it is) from Dijon to Flavigny, please let me know. Thanks!!!!

      Need advice about the wisdom of a late March visit

      by smeans2 Online Now Dec 12, 2010 at 4:22 PM

      I will be in Paris later in March, and I want to extend the trip to visit Bourges and Chartres (by train). I've discovered I could easily visit at least part of the Loire Valley (by car) en route from Bourges to Chartres, but I have to wonder if this is a crazy idea. I don't expect anyone to predict the weather, but is the area (roughly from Tours to Orleans) likely to be at all rewarding at this time of the year? Perhaps there will be a very early spring :-), but assuming there is not, I would appreciate any thoughts on my sanity. I should confess that while I would want to visit a major chateau or two, this would not be my primary interest--landscape, villages, churches are my things. I'm sure there are better times to visit, but I'm working with the opportunity I have.

      by pcsqueen Online Now Dec 16, 2005 at 9:33 PM

      Hi -

      My husband and I are staying in the Loire Valley between 27DEC05 and 01JAN06. I booked a hotel, Hôtel du Bon Laboureur, in Chenonceaux, based on its excellent reviews.
      Found out AFTER the reservation was set in stone (meaning that I'd have to pay, at a minimum, 50% charge to cancel) that the restaurant will be closed on New Year's eve. (Could they have noted that when I called to inquire about a room???????????)

      Since eating on premesis was my goal for the 31st, now I have to find someplace that is still accepting reservations. I've tried three places already, only to be told that they are booked.
      The reservation folks at Bon Laboureru aren't much help, other than giving me names and phone numbers of places in Amboise. I have to call the restaurants and inquire about reservations.

      Can anyone recommend a small, bistro-type restaruant in Amboise. I'm reluctant to drive to far afield; plus, right about now, I'm not in the mood to don formal attire, which is required at many of the booked-up restaurants.

      Thanks in advance.

      Merry Christmas! Joyeaux Noel! Froliche Weinacht!
