    • Corsica in winter

      Nice Dec 22, 2016 at 12:42 PM

      Has anyone taken the ferry from Nice to Corsica? I have a few questions.
      Are restaurants, shops in geneal and points of interest open?
      What is the livliest city to visit in January or February?
      Does one need a car to get around?
      Thank you,

    • Provence France1 week extra

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Jan 16, 2017 at 11:47 AM

      I will be ending a tour of southern France on a Thursday - end of Sept 2017. The tour will include: Pont du Gard, Arles, Les Baux, and Nice. I will have 7 days (following Thursday night) to get back to Paris for return flight.
      What would be a good trip? I have not seen Monaco, Antibes, Cannes, Marseilles, Aix en Provence, Vaison la Romaine. I would not mind going to Orange again. Prefer TGV rail over driving, but could rent a car for short trips.

    • Summer holiday

      France Jan 11, 2017 at 3:11 AM

      Sorry to hear this site is shutting down.

      I had an incredible summer honeymoon in Switzerland thanks entirely to commenters on this forum. I'm really grateful.

      This question is very broad but I thought I might get lucky again!

      Hoping for a may/June family holiday this year.
      Traveling with a three year old and a one year old.
      Beach, hotel, pools, nature, good food, a nice little town nearby.
      We really want it to be child friendly with food and drink readily available but not too big a complex.
      Also considering Italy and Greece, I'll post over there too.

      Many thanks if you have any thoughts!

      Paris with kids

      Paris Jan 13, 2017 at 6:23 AM

      Hello Paris experts ;-)

      We'll be attending the U2 show in Paris on July 25 and want to add a couple of extra days in and around the city.
      I don't yet know where we'll be staying.

      Our boys - who will be 9 and 11 by then - will be joining us. In fact it was their idea go along to a show and then our oldest one decided he wanted to see the Eiffeltower ... And what's a mum to do then but to buy tickets for the Stade de France then ... anything to keep the young ones happy (and now I can 'blame' them for the trip ;-) ).

      We'll likely arrive there around noon on friday 21st and leave for home again on wednesday 26th.

      Do any of you have a suggestion as on what kids might enjoy doing. The Eiffeltower is a must. Besides that: they don't mind a museum (as long as it doesn't take an entire day), they like history and they're not fussy about walking.
      I've read something about the sewers tour ... do you think that's worth doing with kids?

      As always: thanks for your input!

    • Est-ce que le métro de Paris est encore dangereux?

      Je souhaite une réponse rapide.

      Any must sees or must eats?

      Carcassonne Jan 11, 2017 at 6:22 PM

      We will be spending a few days in Carcassonne in May-June and have things pretty well sorted out. However, it would be nice to hear from you if you have any suggestions for things we should not miss. Also, restaurant recommendations would be welcome for Carcassonne, Narbonne, Beziers and/or Collioure.

      Thanks - this could well be my last question before VT gets the deep six.

      U-Boot pens - is it possible to visit them?

      by Drugness Online Now Nov 18, 2010 at 2:37 AM

      Hello all
      I'm planning to visit Brest next year and i was wondering if it is possible to visit the U-Boot pens that still exist there or are they off limits?
      Does anyone know of any tours available or is there possibly a museum attached?
      If these are not open to the public, then can someone tell me if any of the other surviving pens are? For example, those at Bordeaux, La Rochelle, St Nazaire etc.
      Many thanks in advance

    • Help with concert venue

      by lightchaser46 Online Now Feb 25, 2007 at 2:54 PM

      Hello! I just found out that Alan Simon is taking his new Excaliber II on the road in June and the show will be at Brest Parc de Penfeld. Can anyone tell me about this venue? How does one get tickets to a show there from America? I will be flying into probably Paris and renting a car. Right now the itinerary is Brest on the 27th, Rennes on the 28th and Nantes on the 29th. Anyone know the best hotels? Any advice would be appreciated.
