    • Baggage storage in Paris

      Paris 8 hours ago

      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

    • How tourist-y is Antibes in January or February?

      Antibes Nov 7, 2016 at 12:32 AM

      How tourist-y is Antibes in January or February?

      I need a get-away soon, but I don't want to be around large numbers of tourists milling around, taking photos, partying. Unlike many tourists these days, I'm not "looking for the action" (excitement) at all.

      I do speak French fluently and have been a francophile most of my life.

      Is Antibes in the winter subdued enough, quiet enough for me to spend two weeks just de-compressing, wandering around, reading (French novels) and listening to classical music in my apartment? Or should I look elsewhere on the Cote d'Azur, somewhere smaller like Vence or Beaulieu, etc.??

    • Menton or Villefranche-sur-mer ?

      Menton Nov 5, 2016 at 11:46 PM

      How would you compare Menton with Villefranche-sur-mer as a base to explore the Cote d'Azur for a first-time traveler (to the French Riviera) for two-weeks? I am looking for a quiet village or small town atmosphere, away from hordes of tourists, and crossed off Antibes, etc. for that reason. Somehow I narrowed down to my list to Menton and Villefranche-sur-mer. I know the latter is much smaller and seems to cater to a more upper-tier clientele, while the former has attracted many French retirees.

      I do speak French and have a degree in art history, with interest in French history and literature. I will not have a car.

    • 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

      Paris - Nantes highway traffic/toll cost

      by mediamind Online Now Jun 3, 2012 at 4:03 PM

      Hello,
      We are plannig a holiday in Saint-Jean-de-Monts from 14th of July. Since we don't just want to sit on the beach we definately want to rent a car. However we are undecided where to pick it up.
      Since the rental cost is the same it makes sence to pick up at Paris airport and drive all the way.
      On the other hand TGV is faster to Nantes and don't need to do the driving. But for 2-2,5 hours the price tag seems to be high. Obviously if large traffic (jam) is already expected than it is another pro on the TGV side.
      When will the holidays start in France? Can we expect a normal flow of traffic on 14th of July from Paris to Nantes? Or is it likely that the drive will take more time than what Google/Michelin calculates with?
      Also what is the highway cost from Paris CDG to Nantes? (to compare apple to apple: TGV price vs. driving cost).

      Thanks in advance

    • getting to NTE airport early Sunday morning

      by xcelerasian Online Now May 16, 2011 at 7:14 PM

      Hi, everyone!

      I will be in Nantes from May 29 to June 19 for a math summer school and conference. I think I have figured out how to get to the Université de Nantes (Faculté des sciences) from the airport by bus/tram/navette, but my flight out on June 19 leaves at 7:30 am. Given that this is an early international flight (NTE to CDG to DTW) on a Sunday, it doesn't seem like public transportation would work. Does anyone know if there is a cheap way to get to the airport this early on a Sunday?

      My default at the moment is to take a taxi, but that will probably be costly. :(

      Thanks for any help!

      by clint04 Online Now May 30, 2009 at 9:23 AM

      Hi guys,

      could anyone suggest somewhere fab to stay over on the way to St Jean De Monts from Nantes airport?

      We need to bare in mind that we'll have two tired children straight off a plane so we only want to travel a max of 30 mins from the airport. If we go somewhere half way or so then we've estimated that we'll only have approx 40 mins of travelling the next day to get to our holiday destination of Orouet, St Jean De Monts.

      Check list required is;

      1. Somewhere 30 min from the airport en route to holiday destination

      2. Somewhere beautiful to wake up to in the morning !

      3. Somewhere that serves a typical French breakfast, has swimming pool (outside)
      and the Kids say 'WOW' to because its so pretty !

      Not a lot to ask for I'm sure.....????
