1. Go on a Wednesday I would try to do this on a Wednesday, since this is the day in which both the Rodin Museum and the Louvre are open late. The former closes at 20h45, the latter at 21h45. This is to maximise the time available to get this trip done, thus reducing its time-criticality. 2. Reserve your Tickets I can't stress this enough: reserve your ...

The Paris transport operator, RATP has a journey planner on their website. You can input your start point, end point, and start time, and it will suggest routes to you. If you don't want to worry about the bus, you can restrict it to rail (so Train, RER and Metro) only. Make sure you search for Aeroport or similar as your start point however, as France is ...

There is always a difference between what you see in the media and the reality. I live in Paris. The current flood is not common but more because it is happening in June than for its intensity. There are floods in Paris almost every 2-3 years. Usually the avenue along the Seine river gets closed for few days. This is happening usually during winter. Never ...

When I took the Thalys just to Belgium it did cost me the same as when I took that train to Paris, or more as I did not managed to get the lowest price for the tickets. From that point of view, you will pay an extra leg of travel, likely for the Belgium to Paris leg it is easier to find cheap tickets as there are more trains. But all depends on when you buy ...

It sounds like you're looking for raclette: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raclette The dish originates from the Swiss canton of Valais, not far from Geneva, which means the dish is quite common there. For the locals it's a winter dish, but there are quite a few (somewhat touristy) restaurants that serve it all year round, like this: http://www....

Paris is expensive; Paris is full of tourists. The 9th arrondissement, like every other arrondissement (except maybe the 1st) offer a wide assortment of dwellers, lot of families, lot of office workers. There are schools in the area (my way of knowing if it is locals or tourists) , so you know there are families; if there are families, there are proximity ...

You should be careful with what people are telling you about Paris :) From one street to another, the situation can be drastically different. So if you stay in the 9th arrondissement, you will find tourist places but you will also mostly find residential and office areas. People probably tell you that this is a big tourist place because of the retail stores ...

I have found this post about it. It is in French but I'll translate the general idea behind it : http://www.disneylandparis.fr/faq/restaurants/alimentation-boissons-exterieur/ So it isn't allowed to bring with you large bags full of food to organize a group picnic inside the park. They don't explicitly say that it is allowed to bring some water or ...

I can not say for sure since you do not provide info about the flights in question, but what I can infer suggests that they do need a visa, even a full Schengen visa and not only a transit visa since you will need to go landside, i.e. pass immigration twice. The direct flights from Djerba to Orly that I can find are offered by transavia and Tunisair and go ...

'What are the chances': Impossible to say. Probably, if he's going in the general direction and is ok with picking up hikers, the chance of him stopping is good. 'Would it increase my chances if...': Probably. What really increases your chances is to not hold a sign and wait for people to stop, but to make sure you hike from gas station to gas station and ...

You can potentially make it if you walk fast enough and if your luggage doesn't take ages to be delivered... Your flight will probably be on time as you are flying with Lufthansa. But since this is the end of the day, there might be a bit of traffic jam to get to the parking for the plane. Then, let's pick 10 minutes for this. Then 20 minutes to get to the ...

According to La Fourchette, which is a website where you can find all the restaurants in France, the only Vegan restaurant in the 5th arrondissement of Paris is "Le Puits de Légumes". I leave it to you to use La Fourchette to find others! Around the 5th, you have the 6th, the 4th and the 13th arrondissements.

Be aware that Châtelet-Les Halles is a pretty big ...
