I am looking at purchasing a 24 hour Paris travel card, this is for public transit, nothing more. My question is, once it is validated is it valid until midnight of the day purchase, or is it valid for an actual 24 hours which may overlap until the expired time the next day.
My Husband and I will be at the Eiffel Tower on New Years eve. For the people who have been there. How hard is it to get to the metro and back to your hotel from there after ringing in the New Year? Is it a complete madhouse? Should I spend the money for a Taxi and not worry about even trying the Metro.?Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
Couple taking first trip to Paris and trying to experience as much as possible! Arriving into Gare De Nord station & staying in San Germain Du Pres area.
1. Is it best to purchase a Paris (city) Pass that combines museums & transportation?
2. could anyone recommend area groupings for the 'must see' places ?
3. Is it best to take a taxi from train station to hotel, then taxi to CDG upon departure.
I'm unaccustomed to the public transportation. :>(
Any suggestions or strategies for saving money on air travel NYC /Paris round trip.
XL France seems to have a cost edge but owns very few planes. Hate to get stuck at either airport.
Our departure dates (late April) can be flexible. Could one day be "significantly" cheaper than another?
Our first trip (with Gate1) was booked on Air India. They cancelled the NY/Paris portion but Air France carried us - very nice.
Coming home was kind of an adventure. The flight from CDG was the continuation of a 747 Air India run from Mumbai. The temperature in the center section of the plane was -in the 40s Fahrenheit. The rear must have been in the 90s F. It was as if there was a hole in the place. Nonetheless, the crew was great and the food was fun (and pretty constant).
Upon landing, we discovered, Air India flew 2 flights with the same Flight Number which caused our Limo arrangements to get goofy.
That said, I'd go with Air India or a comparable company again if it would save us $250. or $300. per ticket. I MIGHT even consider a 1 stop deal (if it didn't cost too much delay) iOtherwise, would be nervous with a charter. operator.

Just finishing up last minute plans for our trip next month. We will be staying in Montrouge near these two Metro stations. I was wondering if anyone had some recommendations of restaurants in the area. We will be spending most of our days in Paris. But early mornings and evening will be in the Montrouge area before hoping on the Metro to head into Paris. It would be nice to visit some places outside of Paris that are not as touristy.
In dire need of your help.. i am planning a trip to paris april 2014.
still confused about where to stay and which hotel. we are in a budget of around EUR 150/night, staying in paris 3 nights before we head out to barcelona.
paris arrondissiment is a bit confusing to me..we just want to be in the center, near the hoho bus and a place to eat. Been advised to book an apartment but from reviews a 3 night visit not worth the hassle of renting an apartment. also to pay in advance +transfer fee from indonesia to europe is soo expensive.
looking forward for the advice, thanks in advance.
HI, Everyone--I'm nearly one week out of my departure date to Paris--I saw last night that a large Christmas market opened on 11/15 in the Champs-Elysees area---can anyone give me more details and would it be worth my time to check out? Thank you!
Hi. Asking for advice. We’re looking for apartments in Paris for a month I’ve found a really cute place in a favorite area but it is on the 3rd (American) floor above an Irish pub on the first (ground) floor. We’re more than a little concerned about the noise. It is at 28 rue St. André des Arts right around the corner from Place St. Michel. (Yes, I know it is very touristy; we like that.) We also expect lots of people and street noise. What we don’t like is extremely loud music blasting through the night and Corcoran’s Irish Pub has advertised Weds. night rock starting at 9:30 PM, Friday night rock & blues starting at 9:30 PM and Sunday evening traditional Irish starting at 7:30 PM but the photos showed microphones so it is amplified. (Their “acoustic” music probably is also amplified.) We go to bed around 10 so I’m not familiar with the area late at night.
My question is: Has anyone been at Corcoran’s Irish pub and if so, how loud is it? Do they use those huge speakers that drown out a jet airplane? Have you been in that area after 11 PM or midnight and is it still very noisy? Is it just street noise or is it loud music noise?
Sorry to be so long with this, but we spent a miserable night at Hotel Monpensier when some idiot had an incredibly loud party next door until about 4 AM. I can’t handle that 3 nights a week for a month.
Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.
Bon Jour! Going to Paris with my parents, who have never been overseas. I'm a flight attendant with a major airline and have been to Paris a few times. I'd like to know what to do on the weekend with them. I don't want them to remember the horrendous lines and shoving through throngs of tourists just to glimpse at something for 45 seconds. Are there less-traveled 'tourist' spots to visit? Perhaps the outdoor venues?
Thanks so much,
I used to think "packages" to Paris made good sense (I,e, seems like hotel and air travel bundled together saved real money) Lately, it seems the only deals are out-of-the-way tourist hotels and NOT great savings.
Given that I'd like to be in the 6th ARR, should I book my own room.
What are others doing?
