I'm a 16 year old, and I'm going to be traveling to Paris alone for a few days this summer between a couple events. I was hoping someone on here would know a good place to stay in the city that is relatively nice and allows minors to stay by themselves (with signed parent permission of course) for a few nights. All the hostels I could find on Hostel International and other similar sites require you to be 18 or traveling with a parent, neither of which match my situation. Thanks for the help.
Hi , I will have 3 full days in Marseille in mid May . One day I will spend going to Cassis and taking the boat ride . How best to spend the other two days ?
Is it worth going to Aix for a day trip ?
FYI I will have to use public transport since I don't drive .
Thanks a lot
PS : BTW , have been to the western part of Provence last year ( Avignon , Nimes, Arles etc )

I'm planning a trip to Provence in May. I thought I'd base myself for a few days in one Provence town and from there do day trips around the area (I won't have a car, I plan to take tours). Does anyone have an opinion if I should base myself in Avignon or Aix maybe? Is one town more accessible than the other? or will one town have more day trip tour options than the other? Thanks.
I have some time to blow before I return to the US from Malaga on May 17th. I will be in Barcelona on May 2 and was thinking of taking the train to Perpignan for a few days as I have not been to that area of France. I have been all over Spain and the coast and someone had told me Perpignan was pretty. Having looked on the hotel booking websites, there don't seem to be a whole lot of hotels in Perpignan to begin with, but I would like to stay under 45 Euros a night if I can. It is just…
I have approximately 10 days to spend in Alsace & Lorraine and I plan on using the train or bus to get around. What would be the best home base to take day trips? I was thinking of Strasbourg, Colmar, Metz, or Nancy or a combination of those. I wouldn't object to having two (or three) home bases if there is more than one town that requires more than a day trip. I like museums, gardens, food halls, shopping, and speak passable French. I will be coming from Paris.
This is the beginning of a road trip around Europe, me, my partner and our dog are crossing France from Calais to Marseille and would like to know the best places to visit on a 10 days route. We are looking for beautiful nature, small towns and villages. We are also very keen on doing some outdoors activities like kayak, climbing, hike and others.
Would be great to have your suggestions.
So the Subject kind of says it all. Can you please give me and my wife an itinerary to travel the Provence area by car in 8 days staring in the Pyrenees?
Good food-wine, good scenery, a bit of history and good times!!! Thank you!!
We're arriving in Paris the morning of April 14th, which is Good Friday. We're staying in an apartment near the Champs Elysees. I'm concerned about shops and attractions being open from the 14-16 and I've also read that Monday, April 17th might be a holiday. Any feedback or insight welcome!
My husband and I along with our 2.5 years old daughter will be making our first trip to Paris this May. We just have 4 days and want to cover some of the top attractions in Paris. We will be arriving on a Monday morning at 8 am at CDG airport and will be departing on Friday morning the same week. We will be staying in the 7th arrondissement, quite close to the Eiffel tower and have already booked our stay.
As we do not want to wait in long queues with our toddler, we plan to buy a Paris…
