I will be in Provence in 1 month and will be based in Salon de Provence. We will have a car and our 12 month old. I had planned out the itinerary but the more I read about Provence, the more unsure I feel about where I want to visit!

Day 1: Arrive by Train in Aix-en-Provence and enjoy the city for an afternoon before heading to Hotel in Salon de Provence.
Day 2: Drive along lavender route and maybe visit Lourmarin, Gorges, or St. Remy (which one?!) We love the outdoors but also love strolling…

Off to Paris for a month and was just wondering what is the cost of living there? e.g. a coffee, set meal in a non tourist menu, e.g. what do Parisians pay?

also does anyone know if there are metro or RER weekly tickets? and or special train tickets for the euros?

Hi All,
We are new to this forum, but wonder if anyone can recommend good accommodation in Nice which is not too expensive? Our main requirements are location, cleanliness and comfort, so it doesn't have to be upmarket as long as the fundamentals are covered. We are looking at 23 July for four nights at this point. Has anyone found that special little place in Nice? Thanks!

I was recently in France and bought a SIM card for my iPhone 6 from Orange that was good for two weeks. Can I top-off and re-use this card the next time I go to France? If so, is that cheaper than buying a new card and getting a data plan?

Hello everybody!

I live in Bordeaux, and I noticed that there is a lot of Information about Bordeaux online, but not much about the countryside of the region of Gironde, especially in English. But in this region there are a lot of interesting places and beautiful landscapes. So I tried to make movies about places I have visited. I hope it will be useful to people who are planning to visit this region.

Saint-Médard-en-Jalles: Castle, Château, Watermills
Léognan and Martillac: Vineyards, Châteaus,

Hi,
We are staying close to the Eiffel Tower the end of July and want to buy the paris museum pass.
All the searches i have done are all old and outdated and wanted to know where i can buy these passes without getting stuck in huge lines. Is there any place near the Tower that i can get them from? Our first use will be the Louvre and really don't want to get them from there.
You can buy them online but still have to pick them up at places i have no idea of..

Thanks
Vince

I am beginning to research a 2-3 day self-guided hotel-to-hotel cycling trip for a visit to France next year (May-Jun) and am seeking help in deciding where to go (or, at least, where to focus my search).

-We are interested in easy/moderate-level rides with no more than 20 miles of riding per day.

-We love VARIETY and would like to tour quaint villages, markets, medieval castles, vineyards (wine & cheese samplings), rivers/canals, vistas, caves, and meandering country roads.

-We don't…

Hello:
I'm planning a trip to Corsica in August, and hoping to avoid having to rent a car. I read something about bicycle rental as an alternative to car transport. I want to visit to some of the smaller, out of the way villages. Anyone know if this seems realistic? I'm fit and not worried about having to put in some (even a lot) of physical effort, just wondering if getting around by bike is practical. Also, anybody know of some places to rent bikes?

Thanks!
