    • visiting Villers Bretanneux from Paris

      Paris Jan 4, 2017 at 10:22 PM

      I'm keen to visit Villers Bretanneux while in Paris. I can catch a train to Amiens but need to be able to get to VB for a visit,then go to the Australian war memorial about a mile away. Any suggestions. I don't want to pay the E300 for a full tour of the Somme region. Driving isn't an option

      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!

    • Est-ce que le métro de Paris est encore dangereux?

      Paris Dec 27, 2016 at 12:58 AM

      Bonjour
      Mon ami et moi prévoyons d'aller à Paris dans quelques semaines. Mais parce qu'il est froid, nous voulons prendre le métro. Mais est-il sûr après tous les événements de cette année?
      Je souhaite une réponse rapide.
      Je vous remercie à l'avance!

      Paris - scenic spots like the Alps this Feb

      Paris Jan 4, 2017 at 4:58 PM

      I will be in Paris this early Feb and would like to go to a scenic spot similar to the Alps. Perhaps Jungfrau Switzerland or somewhere nearer Paris or Geneva? I only have 2 days though. Our free time will be Friday the whole day until Sunday morning. We need to leave by Sunday morning (either from Paris or Geneva). Any suggestions?

    • DIY Day Trip

      by ayukee Online Now May 6, 2011 at 1:39 AM

      I'm planning to make a day trip from Paris to Provins with my husband and little boy (below 2 years) via train in June.

      From other visitors' reviews, I understand that we should make the Tourist Office our first stop upon arriving at the Provins train station.

      I'd like to know if the Tourist Office is a comfortable walking distance from the train station. It would be good if you could give me an approximate walking distance or walking time based on your experience. If it's too far a walk, are taxis easily available?


      Thanks a lot!

      TRAVELLING TO PROVINS & FINDING OUR WAY

      by JANICE3242 Online Now Jun 2, 2009 at 7:23 PM

      We will be in Paris in late August and I'm interested in travelling to Provins for a day trip. I believe I can get there by rail. Does anyone know if that is true?

      We speak no French. Once we arrive in Provins, would we be able to figure out how to get to the tourist information center? I can't find any helpful information in any of the guidebooks. We found it easy to navigate in Paris last year but we used maps.

      I would appreciate any information anyone can offer about travelling to Provins. My travelling party is two adults and a 13 year old boy. The idea of a medieval town sounds delightful.
