Paris

Paris is always a good idea.

  • More about your Oliver: Nina Smallhorn

  • TRIP TYPE: FAMILY / WINTER

  • Ideal trip length: never enough time in Paris... 1 week is a must

 

To & From

  • The way to get to Paris is by train. Eurostar from London to Paris....DIVINE. Definitely spend a little more on the Premier seats with a meal. Views of the countryside are picturesque with little steeples and villages along specs of green.

STAY

EAT & DRINK

DO

  • Buy a Paris Pass. Allows access to most museums and sites. Offers fast track to many. Do note that once you activate it, the days are consecutive.
  • Musee d'Orsay is closed on Monday and the Louvre closed on Tuesday.
  • When traveling with young ones, plan on having a little down time or plenty of stops of Chocolat Chaud or Macaroons. There are Laudurees everywhere that can solve that.

INSIDE SCOOP

  • UBER is the best way to "cab" around. They are plentiful, affordable and very nice.
  • Always try to speak French- even if you can't speak well.
  • Greet everyone with a Bonjour Monsieur/Madame. Bon Soir and A bientot.
  • Always keep you personal items close and zipped in.
  • While the lights are festive at Christmas time, we much prefer visiting Paris in warmer weather when we can walk, walk walk and sit in the park with a ham and cheese baguette.
