I'm looking for high-end/top of the line type of gear for about 5 days. A few places online have "performance" packages for just a bit over 100 euro (for 5 days). I wouldn't mind paying that or even a bit more for good equipment.
Any recommendations as to where to look, and also a place with a decent customer service, so that they can fix any issues that may come up, exchange gear midway, wax boards/sharpen edges if needed?
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.
I've read that there is a performance of Faure's Requiem somewhere in Montreuil on Saturday 14 December 2013. Does anyone have more details - venue, time, how to get tickets?
Trying to find information about an old falling down castle, or large mansion away from town. It was derelect in the late 1960's when I stayed at a friend of our familys house up in the hills a few miles from town. It had a belltower I remember climbing up to, the stairs were falling apart, and were barely hanging onto the walls when Michelle, a boy about my age and I went climbing around in there.
We are staying in Villefranche-sur-mer during Grand Prix 2014. I have heard that not all trains stop at Villefranche on the way to Monaco during Grand Prix due to the crowds - is this correct? Any information on which trains do stop in Villefranche would be appreciated.
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.
We have 3-4 days travelling from Paris to Castelnaudry to join a canal boat cruise. Does anyone know good ideals/contacts for hiring a rental car in Paris and where we could leave it near Castelnaudry? Most grateful for any ideas thankyou!! time of year is June
We will be arriving to Chamonix from Zurich Airport by train on December 24th. We are travelling with a Swiss Transfer rail ticket that allows us to travel all the way to Chamonix but Les Houches is extra. The train we are travelling on to Chamonix continues on to Les Houches. Is there any way to buy tickets directly from the conductor so that we do not have to get off the train and wait for the next one? I have tried to book the ticket on the SNCF website and it should cost 19.5 Euros for the whole family but there is no way to have the ticket delivered to us. There does not appear to be an option to buy online and PRINT the tickets. If I select mail delivery and enter United States I get re-directed to Rail Europe where I will be charged a total of 65 Euros which seems outrageous for the 15 minute journey. Any ideas?
We're two young couples staying in an apartment for free in Paris over Christmas/New Years, but are planning to do a side trip so that we can see more of France. Our plan is:
12/23, 12/24, 12/25 -- Paris
12/26 -- Loire
12/27, 12/28 -- Bordeaux
12/29, 12/30, 12/31 -- Paris
Sound reasonable? We'd rent a car and make a road trip of it.
Any tips on where to stay in Loire? We'd like to see a few Chateaux -- any recommendations?
Any tips on where to stay in Bordeaux? We'd love to do some wine tasting and try out some great restaurants. I've heard the town St. Emilion is cool, but we could also stay somewhere in the countryside...
We're definitely on a budget.
Any words of wisdom would be appreciated, as we are new to France!
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. :>(
I plan a holiday in the Sarlat area and would like an English speaking driver for day trips, vineyard/restaurant visits etc. Does anyone know of such a service that is not too expensive?

First of all, THANK YOU to all those on this site who take the time and trouble to answer questions so brilliantly!
I know I have asked before about this but I am getting very, very confused.
We want to travel to Sarlat from Paris and back again in late September 2011. The hotel we will stay at suggests getting to Souillac by the TEOZ train and then having a hotel transfer from there.
I have asked our travel agent without much success - they seem to think that going by train would require a few changes of trains and are suggesting we go by bus but are very unsure about any of it themselves and don't seem to want to pursue the matter (even tho we would book through them out of courtesy and have spent a lot of money with them in the past).
Help, help, help! There must be an easier way – I have tried looking at the train sites but as I said earlier I am getting confused.
