      What is the livliest city to visit in January or February?

    • 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!

      Bonsoir,

      I am planning a day trip to Dijon and I would like to visit some wineries or small towns nearby by push bike. Does anyone know whether this is possible, ie are there any bike paths and wineries within 20-30 kilometres of Dijon?

      Je ferai un voyage a Dijon pour un ou deux jours et j'aimerais visiter des vignobles ou un autre petit village, préférablement du moyen âge, a vélo. Est-ce vous savez s'il est possible de le faire? Je veux savoir s'il y a des pistes de vélo et/ou des vignobles a court distance de Dijon (entre 20 et 30 kilomètres).

      Thank you!

      Hi all.
      My girlfriend is going to study 3 months, from Jan. 09 til late April 09, at the Uni in Dijon.
      Luckily enough, I'm able to go with her.
      To be abel to drive around in the region, we plan to take the car. (I know it going to be a long journey trough Scandinavia and Germany.)
      What I would like to know, is what the road conditions are like in central Europe in winter/spring ?? (Like if it's icy, slippery, bare roads etc)
      We would also love to visit Geneve and northern Italy. How about the drive there ?
      In Norway, we have two types of tires. Summer and winter (With spikes)
      I need to change from winter to summer tires in Denmark, since spikes is not allowed in Germany. Should I bring the winter tires to France, or just leave them at friends in Denmark ?

      I hope somebody can give me a clue.

      Take care,
      Northy

      How do I book train or bus from Paris to Dijon

      by cup0joe Online Now Sep 27, 2005 at 10:01 AM

      Hello all!
      I am having great difficulty booking train or bus travel from Paris to Dijon. I don't know the exact names of the terminal for departure. The website for booking seems to want exact.
      http://www.sncf.com/indexe.htm

      Maybe I can just pruchase tickets in Paris? If so where? Or London in advance?

      Also is there a great difference in price booking the slow train verses the fast?

      Is it possible to get a quote for slow vs. fast from the same company? Or are they run by different train companies?

      I had read that there is a reduced rate for booking 8 days in advance. Which train company might that be with? SNCF or TVG?

      Lots of questions. Thanks for any help here! And any hints of nice countryside places around Dijon to take a slow bike ride to...
