Gonna be in Bordeaux for 5 nights and Toulouse for 4 nights I was wondering if there is any cities close by that are worth visiting! Also other than going to the Euro matches in these cities I have nothing planned so if anyone has any good suggestions of things to do in either city I would love to hear it.
spent day at legion b ase in castelnaudary, quaffed a few brews with legionairs. decided to keep the plastic cups as they had the legion base designation on them . that to me is better souvanire than postcard or t shirt there . not available to public unless you get invited onto the base
My daughter (early 20's) and I (father) are spending a week in Talence near Bordeaux in early June. We haven't stayed there before, so wondering if readers have any recommendations of things to do. We like the outdoors, music, sport and culture and will have the use of a car. Thank you.
Interesting ? is putting it lightly. spent the day in the foreign legion barraks . the base in Castelnaudary had a familty day. so with grandkids daughter went there was very worthwhile. viewing the diff pieces of equipment browsing the surplus items for sale tent. its normaly ? a one day event , but this year its for 2 days.. free entry. plenty of parking. getting to mix and greet plus mingle with legionairs not something you can do normaly.
I just bought my train tickets on the SCNF French website. I was having trouble using my US Credit Card despite calling my credit card in advance to tell them about the purchase. My friend suggested trying his credit card to see if his bank was less strict and his US credit card work so I bought my tickets with that card and gave my friend cash. I have e-tickets which I can print for 2 of the 3 legs. However, the middle leg is from Lyon to Grenoble so instead of a reserved seat I believe I…
my daughter took her 2 kiddies to see Captain america in toulouse., she drove to toulouse , and at first turn off took the transit direct to the theatre. upon return the transit ticket permitted her to exit parking lot at no charge . was pleased that transit stop was right at the theatre. capt america opened much earlier than in canada, her older sister rather miffed putting it politely. bragging rights. kids absolutely enjoyed the movie along with there mother. entry tickets 19euros…
Hi, advice and ideas welcomed.
Planning to spend 2 weeks in a small village 20 km from Avignon around the football EURO cup. Apart from few matches we are having most of the time still free. This is a vacation with my extended family, 8 adults and 3 kids (7-12 years). As this is anyone's first time to that part of France what would be the 'must sees and must dos' without spending too much time on the road or feeling rushed? Smaller places and nature preferred to big cities. We are renting…
I will be in Paris this summer and am staying in a hotel near Gare du Nord train station. Can anyone recommend the best neighbourhoods or "Arr's" for nightlife closeby to Gare du Nord? Preferably within a 5-10 minute walk. Thanks.
Is there anybody who knows weather a Eurail pass holder can use it to get on an autocar free?
I have seen autocar on Gare Lyon-part-dieu train timetable but I wonder can I use Eurail pass to get on instead of transferring 3 times to arrive at Chamonix.
P.S. I have written to Eurail but got no responds.
Much thanks to anyone who can inform me the massage.
in may i will fly to the cote d'azur for 8 nights.

So i have 3 more nights to spend. Can you recommend another city between marseille and nice? Is it a good idea to stay one night in toulon and 1 night in feijus?
I speak a few words french and i had no problems last year in paris. But all i hear is that the french people can be very rude if you…
