Paris to Pontorson is also an option, which is 9km away. From there you can take bus 15 to Saint Michel from the station. So much great information, thanks Anna! Do you know any apps that might be helpful?
The Essential Paris Travel Guide
Hi Anna, First of all, I want to thank you for the experiences told to everybody about my country. This post is reassuring on trips to paris ans some remarks made me laugh! But it is not easy… Your blog is wonderfull and I hope mine will be as beautiful as yours! My husband participates to French wine blind tasting championships and easily organizes initiation and visits. Can we get in touch to discuss this. Anyone interested it would be a pleasure to help for your visit in France. Paris is a really awesome and beautiful country. I love Paris.
I am trying to next year and I use your tips for visiting Paris. I like your blog. Thanks for sharing useful tips. This is a great guide and totally agree! Myself, I would recomment to visit Montmartre which is a very nice neighbourhood in Paris. It will give you a superb view on the Eiffel Tower. Nice information, very helpful… Curious about the Seine River dinner cruises, recommend?
Seems costly. Question is, is the dinner worth it, because you can take an evening cruise without a dinner. Germaine area?
Do you like that choice of area? We first had booked in the 7th, but it seems rather boring.. For the evening dinner cruises the atmosphere is different and can be fun! Have you seen my other post in which I explain arrondissements? I really love your article. I would definitely come back to this article the day I make final plan to go to Paris. Everyone remembers their first trip to Paris.
What's on in Paris
Hi, Anna, I have really enjoyed reading this post and others on your site. You have some wonderful tips, and I think they will be very helpful. I will be traveling in July to Paris from the US with my two daughters. They are both very excited to go on this trip. I am trying to plan our trip so that we can enjoy and not be overwhelmed with trying to do everything, and your post has been very helpful. I also enjoyed reading about Vaux le Vicomte and Fontainebleu as an alternative to the Versailles tour. Although the Mona Lisa would not be our sole reason for visiting the Louvre, my daughter has studied the painting in two art history classes and is hopeful that she can see it.

As she says, there are many anomalies with the painting that make it a fascinating study for an art student. We are not fans of being caught in big crowds and certainly want to see other art while we are there. It sounds as if visiting in the evening might make this more possible? No matter what, thank you for your helpful tips! You could try visiting in the very late evening when the Louvre is open until 10pm on Wed and Fri — it gets less crowded from around 6pm.
Hey — nice post. I lived in Zurich for many years and visited Paris several times, but have only just learned to appreciate it. I would really appreciate more restaurant tips — especially little hole-in-the wall spots that have good, local hopefully inexpensive food. Just a couple suggestions for others from our trips last one July : Holiday Inn Yes! We found food in the Latin Quarter excellent, large portions, and reasonably priced much cheaper than the expensive places on the boulevards around the corner ; not to mention the interesting atmosphere. The one exception I have to your notes, Anna, is the Vaux le Vicomte.
With their feature summer Saturday night candle lit walk and fireworks, I thought this would be a nice surprise for my wife. While the Chateau was interesting — and has a fascinating history, being the pattern for Versailes — it is not well cared for. This was pretty disappointing since the website shows spectacular views. There are only early guided tours so if you are there for the evening show, none and only one tour in English a day, anyway; although the free self-guided tour is good.
The Chateau itself is not air-conditioned and — in July — very stuffy and there are no ushers to answer questions. Also you really need to watch your schedule, since bus back to the train station for Paris are limited. All that said, I kind of enjoyed being at the Chateau, out in the countryside without crowds, but for some who are not used to a little inconvenience like my wife….

Not all restaurants are child friendly though most are. And they can be very direct. French schedules are weird. Always double check hours online. The entire city shuts down in August for les vacances. Also, their chocolate cookie. A great place to grab a quick cup and snap a photo! Loustic — our neighborhood favorite for craft coffee.
