    • Corsica in winter

      Nice Dec 22, 2016 at 12:42 PM

      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 Yesterday

      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!

      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.

      Where to stay

      Longwy-sur-le-Doubs Feb 28, 2011 at 1:29 AM

      I am planing trip to Trier and Luxembourg in 2 weeks time, and friend who is coming with us suggest Longwy as day out from Luxembourg.
      Now I have done some research about the place and I know is UNESCO WHS.
      But I can not find much. Also here on VT there is no info.
      Now I know there are clusters of 12 fortified buildings in and around Longwy, but I was wondering where to stay the night?
      Is Village nearby or do I need to drive back to Trier or Luxembourg.
      Might be this area is classed under different town/village.
      Can you point me to the right direction?

      Ronchamp Oct 14, 2009 at 5:20 AM

      I am trying to go to this famous capel in Ronchamp as a day trip from Paris. the train schedule is not very convenient. The morning train brings me at Ronchamp around 12:50 in the afternoon. The schedule to return is not very good as train from ronchamp brings me back to Paris around 11 in the night.

      Can somebody tell how far is Lure from Ronchamp and whether there is bus or train from Ronchamp to Lure around 3to4 in the afternoon so that I can catch a train at 5:12 in the afternoon to return to Paris.

      I also want to know whether photography is allowed inside the church. This is very important. If it is not allowed I may have to think whether to go there or not.
