Hello, I ask your help to visit the Noisy-le-Grand housing estates by Ricardo Bofill, Espaces Abraxas and Arènes de Picasso. Will a tourist looking at the architecture be comfortable there? What parts are open to the public? Are there special areas to not miss? Is parking available for rental car? Thank you!
I have been given a fully functional iphone 5S (which is not set up with a number or carrier, and which I am told is unlocked), for use during a trip to France and other countries in Europe (including the UK). My intent is to use it primarily, if not exclusively, for its GPS program. My experience with these "smartphones" is non-existent (I use an old "flip phone" mobile for talking only), so please understand that my vocabulary for these things is quite limited. Anyway, as far as I've been…
Heading to Corsica next summer to climb hike and camp.
I'm hoping to not bring too much gear with me because of airplane fees and such. Does anyone know of a good place to rent climbing gear - or buy - on the island or in Nice?
Also would be helpful if anyone know of any good guides on the island or training gyms where I could maybe recruit someone? I speak French.
Thanks so much for any tips
I will be turning 40 in October and a group of 8 of us are going to Paris for one night and some for two nights. I am now at the stage where I am trying to organize a restaurant for my birthday evening. I was thinking of Moulin Rouge for dinner and show but have been warned its a tourist trap, very expensive and not great food.
I do however like the idea of eating and entertainment. Has anyone got any ideas? As there are a lot of us I would like to keep the budget fairly modest…
Hi , there is a lot of discussion on this forum on whether it is possible to travel around Avignon without a car . While a car would certainly speed things up , and let you visit the smaller villages, I just want to say that it is possible to see quite a bit using public transport. Spent a week there last month and did the following by bus / train. Posting details so that others know what is available and so can make informed choices .
a) Avignon to Pont du Gard to Uzes and back . Take bus A…
Hello Fellow Travelers- Myself, my wife and my 8 year old spent the first two weeks of July in France. I kept a personal travel blog for my family to follow along with us (it's not a commercial blog--I make no $ from it). I talk about where we went, what we say, what we ate...I think some of the blog posts will help to inspire and maybe help to shape your itinerary for your trip to France. Cheers!

Hi everybody, I’m travelling in Europe with 2 friends.
Currently in Paris,we would like to store our luggage in a locker because we have to leave our hotel at 2pm and our flight for Amsterdam is at 8pm at Charles de Gaulle airport.
We want to shop a last time.
If anyone has any advice ?
Hello, I will have a day in Paris next week connecting between travel modes (in and out of Gare du nord), arriving at 07:00 depart at 16:00.
I have been to Paris many times so no need to return to the iconic and obvious (which the internet search reveals when one searches "Paris one day").
I intend to eat, shop and people watch plus one museum / gallery.
So I am thinking Bon Marche & surround - bit of luxe shopping and eating, BHV - stocking up on some home essentials, maybe Musee d'Orsay…
Hi! We are a small family travelling from Dijon to the south of France, via Ardèche. We'd like to avoid the motorways and rather travel via the beautiful trunk roads, to experience the countryside and regional culture. Our son likes fishing, so passing rivers is a plus. We travel in a camper van which means we'll stay at camping sitrs along the way. Preferably calm campings close to nature :) If anyone has any ideas to share, we'll be grateful! We will leave in two days (25 july), so not too…
