      How many nights for Cahors?

      Cahors Oct 29, 2015 at 9:12 AM

      On our slow journey from Collonges la Rouge, we're considering a stop in Cahors. We've looked it up and it sounds great, but when people are doing write ups of their own town they always make it sound great. So this question is for those of you who've been there--is it worth two or three days?

    • Which taxi serice should I hire from Orly to Paris?

      Paris 3 hours ago

      Hello all,

      I am planning to have a Paris trip within a few days. I have travel schedule that I have to land on Orly airport and then go to the city from there. But as I am not familiar with the city and the transportation system, I am planning to rent a taxi from there. So, I need to know about the taxi services in Paris. Is there any meter manipulation practice does the drivers conduct? How is the fare rate? Where and how to book them?

      I went through the internet find a good taxi service but there are many options available. Among them, a service named Taxi in Paris grabbed my attention primarily. Please guys, let me know your experience in the city of Paris.

      Thanks in advance.

    • Restaurants for New Year's Eve in PARIS?

      Paris Nov 26, 2015 at 7:08 AM

      Hello! Me and my husband will be traveling to Paris for the New Year's. I've read a lot of reviews, advice and articles about choosing the right restaurant for the New Year's Eve — and I'm a little afraid to rely on some paid commercial articles offering Top-10 restaurants... The thing is that we do not want an overpriced, super-famous, crowded place. We don't even want any show, no Moulin Rouge or other type of cabaret. We'd love spending this evening in a very cosy, traditional French restaurant. Candles, small, good food, good wine, may be jazz/live music but not like a concert. Budget is around 80 EUR per person. Might be slightly more. I'd very much appreciate your advice.

      Carte Vitale question / Strasbourg / Alsace

      France Nov 24, 2015 at 2:32 PM

      Have tumor(?) issues. Have no Carte Vitale due error of German DAK. Spent countless time to get all the paperwork, only their (DAK) EU form whatever-number is missing, asked already twice: "we will send you it within 10 days".

      The "10 days" passed at least 5 times.

      Still, no EU-form-whatever (and thus no Carte Vitale). In the mean time the doctors in Karlsruhe and Budapest want me to see a surgeon "sure is sure, you probably do not have a cancer - but ethically we may not tell you anything else, just see a surgeon"

      It's not a pleasure to see a surgeon - but:

      1) How should I proceed with French authorities? The doctors want it to be done soon (even that I recall the tumor or what-not) being there for good number of years (if not for most of my life, but not 100% sure)

      2) Any decent oncologist / urologist in Strasbourg?

      3) How the French system works anyway? (Have no idea, except that I need that Carte Vitale what somehow I can't get even that I have a suitcase of papers - one from DAK is missing and they keep screwing it up)

      Sorry, it's not about the travel - I am just kind of busy with all traveling, working, IT stuff, family and other things, have no time for crap like dying or so, neither mood, just in case... would appreciate some help. Thanks.

      Land borders open?

      France Nov 17, 2015 at 9:32 AM

      What is the situation on the land borders with Germany? I am stuck in Hungary (as we know, French government officials asking for extensive paperwork for anything). I was complying with all the paperwork requests from the French government (and this is not very fast in Hungary or RU either).

      While doing so we had the tragic events first with the airplane, than in Paris. The newspapers in Hungary report that the borders are closed - but now I have to travel back (by car) and have no idea, what is going on.

      Will try to call the French Embassy but if any local in Strasbourg and / or Karlsruhe would tell what is the situation on the ground that would be helpful. I live in Alsace.

      Cathedral opening hours

      by Mazely Online Now Aug 20, 2010 at 1:32 PM

      Hello, I intend to be in Amiens next October, and of course I plan to visit the famous Cathedral.
      I've read that the Cathedral is open from 8:30 to 17:30 during October. Nevertheless the Cathedral site mentions that the tour hour (on October) is at 15:45.
      OK - at first, I understood that free visits are from 8:30 to 17h, excluding mass times, and that there is a paid guided tour at 15:45. But...
      on other months (July, June, August...) there are times for "visits" and for "free visits" ("visite libre"). So, what's the difference between a free visit time and just an "open" time?
      Will I have problems to visit (without tour) the cathedral out of the 15:45 visit? I planned to be in the Cathedral during morning, and I didn't want to arrive there just to see the door closed, or access forbidden.
      Thanks in advance, merci.
