    • Baggage storage in Paris

      by alicepen Online Now Yesterday

      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

      by Lucy4 Online Now 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?

      by Archway Online Now 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

      I am making reservations to travel from Avignon TGV to Paris and I see 2 designations; SNCF or iDTGV with the later a few Euros cheaper. My understanding is IDTGV is a subsidiary of SNCF to offer lower fares and everything must be done online. Is it better to use one over the other for any reasons? Thank you!!

    • UK flyers?

      by veryunoriginal Online Now Aug 5, 2016 at 1:35 PM

      My friend has never flown before and is coming to the USA in late August. As a complete oversight (A regrettable one I fear) he booked a connection for his return flight home at CDG with a connection time of 1 hour and 25 minutes (!!!!!) His return flight itinerary is LIT-ATL-CDG- BHX. Since his connection time in Paris is so tight, I’m worried about any additional things he may have to do before boarding. This is booked on one airline and not a cobbled together itinerary. My question is would he have to reclaim his checked baggage and go through immigration in Paris? I know he will have to do this on his flight into ATL as his first port of entry, even though he has booked with the same airline for the whole trip. BUT since the UK is not part of the Schengen agreement, it seems to me he may have to do this again in Paris. If he does have to do that (Claim his bags, go through immigration, recheck bags) then his connection time is entirely too short and he needs to get a game plan for what he may have to do to deal with it.
      Thanks in advance

    • 2 Days in Paris - First trip - end of September

      by Texasdan Online Now Jul 30, 2016 at 11:14 PM

      My wife and I are heading to Paris Sunday Sept 25th - Tuesday Sept 27th. We fly into Frankfurt, Germany Sunday morning and will be taking a train to Paris around noon that day. We have booked a place to stay with Airbnb centrally located by The Eiffel Tower. My wife wants to see the Eiffel Tower and my number 1 thing to do is the Louve museum. I have looked into a guided tour with the Louve museum as to bypass some lines but have also been told that we are going during off peak times so shouldn't be as busy. Also I was thinking of going to the museum first thing Monday morning with the guided tour then staying and exploring more of the museum that day. Then possibly walking over to the Arc de Triumph. Exploring the Eiffel tower Sunday afternoon and evening. Any suggestions for us as we will only have about 2 days there? Any local restaurants in that area that are a must to eat at? Also any better time for the places we are wanting to see or anything else close we can squeeze in? Thank you for your help and answers.

      Hello-
      We are traveling mid August to Paris with a 3 1/2 year old. We're hoping to spend an afternoon in a quintessential Parisian park. We've narrowed it down to Jardin du Luxembourg, Parc de la Villette, or Jardin d acclimatation, but are hoping for some insights since we probably will be able to visit only one of these parks. Preference would be a park that most locals would enjoy, and where we can try some yummy Parisian treats while having enough unique sights to keep our 3 year old's attention. Thanks very much in advance for any advice!
