I'll be visiting Quimper in the spring of next year. I'll probably take a train from Angers. I'm looking for recommendations of a mid range, small authentic hotel which would be walking distance from the best area to shop for Quimper pottery. Love the antiques. . . not sure of pricing. Would love to see lots of versions of this wonderful pottery.
Hi guys, I will be in Chamonix in mid October for 4-5 days. Hoping to do some easy hike around the area. It's the first time that I'm visiting hence would appreciate any information.
- Will there be snow in mid October? Any easy hikes where the trails would have snow?
- I've read that waterproof hiking shoes are required for October? Do I need to bring one or any trail running shoes will suffice (non-waterproof)?
- The weather forecast tends to show between 5-15 degrees celsius for mid October. But I'm not sure if this is taken from the town or from summit or in between? What kind of temperature can I expect if I'm looking to do some hikes. Any trail hikes from Aiguille du Midi stations?
- Any other recommended activities for a first time visitor? Greatly appreciate any information.
Thanks in advance!
Hello, We are 2 adults planning to stay in Avignon for 4 nights in early October looking for a 2 bedroom apartment or hotel with kitchen. I have been looking on various websites but am overwhelmed. Does anyone have advice? We plan to use the train to see surrounding areas and rent a car for one day to see the countryside.
We are wanting to see the whole of versailles or as much as we can! We are going on a saturday 10/9 which we know will be busy but we are willing to put up with this as we would like to attend the night fountain show and the royal serenade also. My question is should we just buy tickets for entry with the shows included and only go during the night which is a tour that includes an hour beforehand to walk around and see the palace OR should we buy separate tickets for entry and for the night show and then just spend the whole day roaming around seeing everything and then see the shows and make our way back?
Also recommendations for best way there and back from paris please.

Would appreciate any recommendations on good B&B in any of these places.
Planning to visit Bordeaux in November. Would like to book a wine tasting tour. Have checked the ones provided on the website - unfortunately there is no public transport connection with those zones. Do you know any more places when wine tasting can be experienced? Or there is no chance to taste Bordeaux wine without a car? :)
I am visiting friends in Saint Raphael next week, and after that visit I need to stay on my own in SR or find another, preferably quiet, low- key beach town to visit. I will have 3 nights free before I need to be in Lagrasse. Any suggestions are most welcome! Thank you!
We need taxi service to take us to Route des Cretes (D141) between Cassis and La Ciotat on 18 August in the afternoon. Have tried calling a couple of taxi drivers in Cassis but they speak very little English and got nowhere with my enquiries. Any suggestions for a taxi driver who does not charge much and who perhaps has an email address (I can write in French using Google translate).
Hi, currently staying at Batignolles with my wife and my 2 kids, we want to store our luggage for our last day on Saturday. Our flight is at 9pm , we want to enjoy the city for the last day;
Does anyone know a place or a locker in Paris ?
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.
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
