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

    • Provence France1 week extra

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur 23 hours ago

      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.

      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.

      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 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?
