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?
I would like to know where can I find the best outlet mall in France which offer discounted merchandise on brands like Burberry, Coach, Dunhill, Hugo Boss, Jimmy Choo, Gucci, Versace, Ferragamo, etc. Preferably close to Paris.
I am looking for the outlet which is best in terms of size of the mall, number of branded stores and ofcorse stores with the best deals.
I have seen lavalleevillage. I like it. But is there anything better on offer??
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.
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?
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.
Can anyone advise the best train route from Chamonix to Paris and what is a better time to depart?
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?
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.
Hi. I am planning to visit Taize in June 2008 and this will be my first time in Europe. Is there a schedule/guiding tour for visitors during that period to which I can subscribe? How about accomodation? Is it better to stay outside the community or does the community has available rooms for rent..
Thanks for your help, as I am really looking forward visiting Taize this summer.
We (a couple) shall be visiting Taize in mid-June for a week, and are planning visiting various towns and villages from Lyon to Taize via L'arbres.e and Macon by trains.
Does anyone know any interesting places to visit along this route? Any reliable and clean accommodation?
Since I am a "mature" adult, I'm wondering if older adults can attend Taize workshops or attend the chanting services offered. Also does one need to stay in Taize a certain amount of days in order to truly benefit from the experience? Thank you very much. suzanne
The Welcome Team has implied that we (3) are "requested not to leave the camp" while we are staying with them...we want to be a part of the community but since this is our 1st time in Burgundy Region, we want to 'explore' our surroundings when we feel that we want to slip away in our rental car. Do you see any objections to this? was the WT's suggestion only a suggestion or do they 'frown' upon comings/goings (reasonably, of course) of the pilgrims????
A friend and I are planning to visit taize around the 24-31st March for Easter Holidays. We have been going through loads of stress and desperatly need a break from it all. I have heard taize is a beautiful quiet place but most people have been during quiet months and did not think us wise to go for the EASTER holidays. My friend is a teacher so can only go now, has anyone been during this time? please what are your opinions?
