      What is the livliest city to visit in January or February?
      Does one need a car to get around?

    • 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!

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.

    • Is Calais a safe place to visit

      Calais Feb 21, 2016 at 9:57 AM

      I am planning to visit Calais for a day trip in the next few weeks. I plan to travel by car through the eurotunnel and would simply like to spend 4 hours during the daytime and visit and explore Calais, in particular the old town the Place D'Armes, Lighthouse, Musee Beaux Arts, the Town Hall & Belfry. Ending with a visit to Cite Europe.

      Keeping in mind the immigration situation in the news, is Calais indeed a safe place for a tourist for a day trip?

      I will be traveling from Dover, England on the Ferry and then catching a train to Paris. I believe Paris de Nord is the closest station to my hotel. I am a little confused about getting the train once we get off the ferry in Calais. Can anyone tell me if the train station is within walking distance from the ferry port? If not...is there buses or taxi's at the port? I would like to take the fast train, I believe that is the Eurostar? Thank you for any help.

      Dogs on the beach

      I'm hoping someone knows if dogs are allowed on beaches in or near Boulogne during June.
      I've tried emailing their tourist information office but had no response from them.
      We are renting a cottage 40 miles inland from the coast and hope to spend a full day visiting Boulogne.
      Next week when we are in France is going to be a heat wave (I guarantee it,- lol) so we will be unable to leave our pooch in the car, hence my question

      We're thinking of a week's stay in Normandy and/or Brittany. Could someone advise me about the easiest way to get there from London via Eurostar (to Calais?). Can we rent a car there or is there another place that would be better? Any hotel suggestions would also be appreciated. I think the trip would be in early June, hopefully not a busy, busy tourist time. Thanks for any advice.
