    • Need help for unforgettable trip in PARIS

      Paris 2 hours ago

      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 :)

    • Visit porto area from Calvi

      Calvi 17 hours ago

      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?

      Holiday rentals

      Nice 10 hours ago

      Hi everyone!

      I'm looking to stay in Nice, France for 5 days over the summer with my daughter and her two children (age 7 and 12). We are going there mainly for a relaxing time, and would be seeking accommodation near the beach, and fairly central. I am not fond of the hustle and bustle of hotels in big towns so we'd prefer an apartment or a holiday complex, unless someone has any recommendations?

      Has anyone heard of any good agencies?

      Thanks,
      Lola

      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

      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!!!!

      Entrance to Matabieu Train Station

      Hi, wondering which way to take walking to and from Matabieu SCNF train station? I have not been to Matabieu so not sure where the entrance to the train station is exactly located.

      Coming from Grand Hotel Raymond IV, Google map direction is to cross the river at Rue de Bayard and then right onto Blvd Pierre Sernard.

      If coming from Hotel Riquet, Google map direction is to cross the river at Allee Jean Jaures and then left onto Blvd Pierre Sernard to Gare Toulouse-Matabieu. But there is also a Marengo-SCNF (Metro?) station on Blvd de Marengo if keep going straight after crossing the river.

      Which one is the correct entrance for intercites train?

      Booking trains on SNCF webstie to Lourdes

      Toulouse Mar 5, 2014 at 8:41 PM

      Hello,

      I am looking at the train schedules from Toulouse to Lourdes on http://en.voyages-sncf.com/en/ and find it rather puzzliing as a first time user.

      When I try to book the direct service on Intercites 14243 (10hr09), 14245 (12hr32) etc on 5 April or other days before that, it shows Seat reservation recommended. But when I choose to Indicate My Seat Preference it shows No places available! Does it means that all these trains are fully booked now, practically everyday from now up to 5 April?

      When I proceed to choose the journey the next page says: "On some trains, the place you requested isn't available for the fare you chose. We have reserved you a place with different criteria instead".

      I can still continue to confirm the booking if I choose to, but will I be guaranteed a seat on these trains or there is possibility that I may not be able to get on the train?

      On those services via Tarbes, such as TER 72705 connecting TGV 8585 at 12hr41, it shows No seats reservation required from Toulouse to Tarbes and No places available also. From Tarbes to Lourdes it shows Off peak and Mandatory seat reservation, and seating preference is available for selection.

      I have posted the screen shots here for reference.

      Thank you for your helps.
