Day trips from Paris

This episode goes into 6 day trips you can easily do from Paris with a little planning and a hunger to see new things. This advice is perfect for people who are staying in Paris and would like to venture out but are unsure how to go about it. Guest Kim Henry tells us how she organized her day trips and shares her advice. It’s important to note that Kim doesn’t speak a lot of French, yet she’s able to get around without much trouble at all. She tells us about her visit to Nancy, Château Malmaison, Monet’s Gardens at Giverny, Saint-Malo, Mont-Saint-Michel, Dinan, Chambord, Chenonceau, Cheverny, and Reims.

Paris Hotel Recommendation from Kim: I stayed at the Hôtel West-End Rue Clement Marot in the 8th, it was very close to Avenue Montaigne and the Champs Elysee and importantly, close to 2 metro stations.  I actually did loads of walking from my hotel over to the 7th, 9th, and 1st districts, it wasn’t far from the Seine either. Yes, I would highly recommend this hotel, the staff were lovely and upgraded me to a room with a view of the Eiffel Tower as I was staying 8 nights.

Places Mentioned on the Show: Nancy, Château Malmaison, Monet’s Gardens at Giverny, Saint-Malo, Mont-Saint-Michel, Dinan, Chambord, Chenonceau, Cheverny, and Reims.

Action-Packed Week in Paris Trip Report with Sergio Ep 104



One Action-Packed Week in Paris

Sergio and his partner Nicolas spent an action-packed week in Paris, September 19th-26th, 2015. They planned this whole trip by themselves, starting with a well-situated hotel at a good price: Hôtel Cluny Square. They also got a Paris Pass which means they prepaid for many of the best museums in Paris and avoided many lines–not all as we will see below!
