    • Baggage storage in Paris

      Paris Dec 3, 2016 at 10:04 PM

      Hi guys,
      I am heading to Paris in January. On my last day I do not need to be at the airport until about 5 o'clock to catch my plane to Sydney. I obviously want to make the most of this as a sight-seeing day(possibly Disnayland) but will have my luggage with me. Does anybody know of any storage lockers or something I would be able to take my big bag to? Does the airport have lockers for rent? Or does Disneyland have big storage cubes? Or would some hotels offer baggage holding even when you have checked out?
      Thanks

    • Solo woman traveling in Paris on New Years Eve

      Paris Nov 28, 2016 at 10:57 AM

      I am a 54 year old woman who will be arriving in Paris Orly airport on Thursday, December 29 at 5 pm,
      and flying out of DeGalle airport on Sunday, January 1 at 11 am.

      My questions...

      1. What area in Paris should I stay in?
      Since I really only have two days I would like a great location to walk to things in the area and as a base for sightseeing. I would be so grateful for decent, hotel and restaurant suggestions in that area?

      2. What is the best/easiest way to get from Orly to "that area" at that time of day?

      3. Are there any good one day tours?
      I would probably book that for Friday or Saturday, and spend the other day on my own exploring the area around my hotel.

      4. What is there to do on New Years Eve? I don't drink but would love to know what would be safe for me to do alone that night.

      Thank you very much!

      Can anyone suggest a day-trip from Paris?

      Paris Nov 11, 2016 at 7:32 AM

      I will be visiting Paris in a few weeks. I have been to Paris numerous times and know it very well. Equally, I have taken many day-trips from Paris and have been to all the obvious places (and even beyond). Can anyone suggest a new place I might visit? I am looking for a place within a two hour radius by train.

      I like quaint places, and/or places that has a old worldly feel to them. I enjoy visiting places with a riverside setting as well e.g. Moret-sur-Loing. 

      Here is a short list of day-trips I have taken:

      Amiens, Auxerre, Beauvais, Bourges, Châlons-en-Champagne, Chantilly, Chartres, Compiègne, Dijon, Fontainebleau, Giverny, Moret-sur-Loing, Orléans, Provins, Reims, Rouen, Senlis, Sens, Tours, Troyes, Versailles.  

      I have not listed other places I have visisted that are further a way e.g. Caen, Lyon, Metz, Nancy, Nantes, Rennes etc.

      At the moment I am thinking of visiting Meaux (because there is a cathedral in Meaux), but I would like to have a few other places on my list. I thought of trying to get to Avallon and/or Loches, but it appears there aren't any direct (or very few direct) trains to Avallon or Loches.

      Many thanks

      Because of physical limitations my wife and I require a private driver/guide to take us from Paris to Giverny. Does anyone have any recommendations? My initial search on the internet yielded some results but they were quite expensive, and those that were more reasonable did not offer hotel pick-up. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      I was wondering if the Monet garden in Giverny was worth a visit late September (around the 23rd). Will there still be some flowers ?

      Return Train from Giverny to Paris

      by DerryPSU85 Online Now Jun 15, 2010 at 4:35 AM

      I saw several postings regarding the Paris to Vernon train options, however, I'm wondering about the return options. If I'm reading the sncf site correctly, the first train back to Paris has a 4:53 departure---is that correct? It has a bearing on whether we go with the 6:30 or 9:00 seating at the 58 Tour Eiffel Rest.
      Thank you!

      We are arriving in Le Havre on Sunday, July 18 and have decided that we will still be suffering from too much jet lag to make the trip into Paris. We have researched our options (visiting Rouen, Honfleur or Giverny) and are interested in making the drive to Giverny. What would be our best way to get there leaving around noon and returning around 5:00 p.m. Does anyone know of a train, bus or taxi that would be able to take us there? Or perhaps a tour company? Thanks for your help, Stephanie
