      Best time of day to go up Eiffel Tower - end of April

      Paris 37 minutes ago

      What is the best time to go up the Eiffel Tower at the end of May?

      I am pre-booking tickets, so its more a question of what time of day is the view the most beautiful?

      Skipping lines - Paris Museum Pass and Pre-booked Eiffel Tower Tivkets

      Paris 39 minutes ago

      We'll be in Paris end of April and will by a Conciergerie Pass (which includes the Paris Museum Pass) and we will pre-book our Eiffel Tower Tickets.

      With these passes/pre-booked tickets you're supposed to be able to skip the lines. My husband has used these passes before, but said that you still wait in very long ques. I think he just used it wrongly tbh :)

      My question is how do you use your Patois Museum Pass and pre-bookes Eiffel Tower tickets to avoid the long ques?

    • personal shopper

      Strasbourg Dec 23, 2014 at 5:06 AM

      I was just in Strasbourg last week at the Christmas markets. I purchased some items at the Cathedral Market at a vendor right by the tourist information shop. I want more from this vendor, but she didn't speak English and I paid with cash. Have tried the Strasbourg tourist dept and got no where.

      Does anyone have any ideas or know of a shopper for hire (in the US, we would call them personal shoppers) ? thanks

      Transport from Mezt town center to Parc des expositions de Metz

      Metz Dec 2, 2014 at 4:29 AM

      Hello all,

      Im planning to attend a function at Parc des expositions de Metz or Mezt Expo in November 2015. I did some readings from posting and blogs in planning this trip (my first trip to Europe, anyway). But there are few things that i would like to confirm to...

      1) is there any bus or shuttle bus that going up to the Metz expo from the town center? and the cost too..

      2) which area is the best place to stay in Mezt for low budget/backpackers traveller? i've looked at Auberge de la Jeunesse de Metz.. but im afraid it would be pretty far from the public transport... for a non-french speaking tourist like me

      your kind replies are highly appreciated. thank u. :)

    • New Year's Eve in Rennes

      Rennes Dec 15, 2014 at 9:52 AM

      Hello. I am taking my partner as a surprise for New Year to France and we are arriving in Rennes early-mid afternoon on the 31st. We are staying in an apartment, so as to give us a choice over eating in or dining out.
      A few questions, therefore :

      1) We are arriving in to Dinard airport on the morning of the 31st – what is the best way to get from the airport to Rennes ? I understand there is a bus from Pleurtuit or are we better getting the train from St Malo ?
      2) What time are shops open on the 31st (in case we need to buy groceries to cook our dinner that evening) ?
      3) Will restaurants be very busy (as it is New Year’s Eve) and should we therefore book in advance ? (Also : any recommendations ?)
      4) What should we seek out (and what should we avoid ?!?) as midnight strikes ?
      5) Any other suggestions or thoughts on what we should see or do.
      Very many thanks in advance.

    • Is it possible to go Taize by myself from 28/12/2014 to 11/01/2015?

      Taizé Yesterday

      Hello,

      I am currently thinking of going to Taize for 2 weeks by myself. However, I wonder the following:
      1. Is it a good idea to Taize by yourself? (i.e. not in a group?) Is it to join other people in workshops, talks, meetings?
      2. Is it possible to during 28/12/2014 to 11/01/2015? On the online registration page, it says there are meetings all year, except from 25/12 until 06/01. What does this mean? Is Taize closed then?

      Thank you very much!!!!!
      And Merry Christmas to you all!

      Hello, my friends!

      We´ll be in France in April 2015. I was checking our schedule and just realized we´ll be visiting Mont St. Michel exactly on the Easter Sunday.

      Is that a problem? Is there any celebration that usually takes place there in this holiday?

      Thank you very much for your help!

      Best regards from Brazil!

    • Visit to Mont Saint Michel in the evening?

      Mont Saint Michel Dec 20, 2014 at 1:25 AM

      Hi, we (wife and I) are planning to visit in May 2015, driving from Paris via Ponfleur, Normandy d-day beaches and so arriving at the Mont late afternoon. Is it possible to 'see the sites' of the Mont in the evening - I have heard about an evening tour but not found details of hours, or what time of year it operates...

      We plan to stay the night, either on the Mont, and nearby on the mainland. Do you have any advice/recommendations?

      Thanks

      Europcar dependability/Saint Pierre des Corps TGV Station

      Tours Dec 12, 2014 at 4:47 PM

      Has anyone had experience renting an automatic transmission car from Europcar at the TGV station in Saint Pierre des Corps? Avis says "sold out," Hertz says "can't book on line--call" (not encouraging), and Europcar offers exactly what I want. Are they trustworthy? Sixt did this to me once (said "yes," had zip). I will not use them again. I know automatics are hard to find in France outside of airport locations, but If Europcar says they will provide one, what are my chances? Many thanks in advance to the many always-helpful VT members. --Spencer

    • Retina specialist

      Nice Dec 10, 2014 at 8:40 AM

      My wife and I are heading back to Nice for three months. Unfortunately, we were delayed due to a torn retina which required me to have laser retina surgery. My doctor said I have weak retinas since this is the second time it happened. In case this happens again I would like to contact a retina specialist during my stay.

      Does anyone know of a retina specialist, not necessarily a personal recommendation but a facility that performs this kind of surgery, in Nice or environs? I have searched Google, spoken to one facility in Nice, Nice Retina at 2 Rue Eugene Emmanuel,  without success. Any help would be greatly apreciated. Thank you,

      Ephraim
