I'm moving to Lyon in a few weeks and I'm a little nervous but super excited too! I was looking for some advice on finding a place, socialising and learning the language! I also wondered if there are any English speakers out there who would like to show me around or get a coffee when I'm out. I'm a really social person, so my main worry is isolation

I'm looking for suggestions on where to go on my next trip to France (possibly spring 2017). I've been to Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Montpellier and Avignon (and surrounding areas). My trip would be 1-2 weeks and I prefer to make a home base in one town and take day trips via public transportation. Avignon was perfect for this. I like history, museums, wine, discovering cool (food/alcohol) shops, wandering around town, etc. My French is a bit more than passable and I'm in good health, so walking…

Hi,
I'm in Paris for a short business trip. From work location/ hotel it is only a 30min. train ride to Versailles.
Arrival time at Versailles castle might be 10-11am.
What do you suggest?
Too crowdy? Which ticket to buy? Only Park? Only castle?
Cancel visit and visit something else? I know most know sightseeing spots already...

Thanks in advance for your ideas!

Hello! I will be going to France next spring with 4 women. Staring out with 5 days in Nice, ending with 3 days in Paris (which we've all vistied before.) We have 8 days in between and want to visit Provence and one of the wine countries. A tentative plan is below, with questions that I'm hoping some experienced travellers can give advice on!
- Nice 5 days
- Provence 3 days (Arles or Avignon or ??)
- 5 days in a wine country (????)
- 3 days Paris

All travel will be by train…

My husband and I are traveling to Nice in mid-November for 9 days and are looking for recommendations of where to stay, what to do, etc. We know that this is off season and that many hotels, restaurants and shops will be closed; however, we are looking forward to exploring as much as we can. We plan to get a car and explore the whole area (perhaps all the way to Aix). Would appreciate any thoughts on itinerary, activities, etc.

Thanks!

Rent a hybrid or road bike? (forwarding luggage twice)
Azay or Usse? (Have heard Azay... even if scaffolding?).

Other advice?

Monday - bike Chinon to Fontevraud (10mi) then to Breze (7mi) then to Saumur (or other) train station. Saumur (7.5mi) = 25 miles. Train to Tours
(mileage based on google maps, not locally-mapped bike paths)
