    • 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?

      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?

      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?

    • 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 :)

      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!!!!

      I have two bookings in Nancy and am trying to decide which one to keep. One is in the center of the city (rue Pierre Semard) and the other is on the outskirts (Laxou). I'd much prefer the one in the city, but it doesn't have parking (hotel says "Public parking is available at a nearby location and charges are applicable." Can anyone tell me how far away such parking lots are and how much they charge? We would only need it for one overnight.
