Layover in Paris

This episode is all about helping you plan the perfect layover in Paris. Do you want to see the Eiffel Tower, the Mona Lisa and Notre Dame on a very tight schedule? Paris Tour Guide Emmanuel Rozenblum of TripAside tells you how! Emmanuel answers questions about what to do if the weather is bad, where to get a quick feel for Christmas in Paris, some of his favorite walks, and some of his favorite restaurants too!

If you love our approach to travel and want to tour France with us, visit Addicted to France to look at upcoming tours.

And even if you want to take your time in Paris, nothing forces you to visit all those sites quickly. If you have any choice in the matter at all, take your time and enjoy Emmanuel’s recommendations.

But whatever you decide once you’ve listened to the show, do not stay at the CDG airport! That would be bad for your soul, and it is also one of Annie’s most despised airports in the whole world!

Today’s show was inspired by a listener question and revolves around this: what amazing things can you do in Paris if you only have a few hours? Maybe you have a layover in Paris on your way to another destination, maybe you have a few hours to kill before a business meeting, maybe you need to wait for a friend who is going to arrive on a different flight.

No matter how it came up, you have some time to kill in Paris. Don’t waste that time, make the most of it! How? I tell you exactly what to do in this episode. When time is short, having a good strategy is vital or all you’ll achieve is rush around and wave your flight goodbye. So let’s think it through and do this the smart way.
