Whereto?

by afcmalta

Where in Paris is it recommended to go (visit) with one who hates walking and standing on his feet for a long time? Thanks

Re: Whereto?

There are many wonderful parks in Paris.

One of my favorites is the Luxembourg Gardens on the Left Bank. Chairs, which can be moved from sunny to shady spots, are provided for a sit-down. You can watch the Parisian world go by.

Another park is the Tuileries Gardens, just to the west of the Louvre. Again, there are chairs scattered throughout the park.

Even within the Louvre you can find spots to rest and take in the art, both what is hanging on the walls and the art of the building.

Paris's many churches have pews for sitting in quiet reflection, either on life's great and small matters and on the beauty of the surroundings.

Two of my favorite churches are St Louis en l'Ile, on the smaller island within the Seine, located at 35, rue de Saint-Louis-en-l'Île; and the other is the Church of Saint-Séverin (http://www.saint-severin.com/). This church is located at 1, rue des Prêtres-Saint-Séverin.

I would also recommend going on a Seine cruise. You don't get to see everything, but for someone who doesn't like to walk I guess it's still a nice way of seeing the city.

I agree with the previous poster about the cruise on the Seine. Both a day cruise and an evening cruise would give you very pleasant and relaxing views of the city. Also try the Ile de la Cite which is home to both Notre Dame and Sainte Chapelle, one of the most beautiful churches in Paris. The walk between the two is very short, then you could stroll over the bridge to Ile Saint-Louis (truly another very short walk) and sit outside a cafe and people watch for a while. Ile Saint-Louis is very quaint and also home to the famous Berthillon ice-cream/gelato shops, so you have a tasty reward at the end of your walk!!
If you change your mind about walking, and Paris is wonderful for walking, then invest in some extra comfortable and supportive shoes and you might find you enjoy it.

There is everywhere to go in Paris, and a lot to see, but you do not like to walk or stand so the Segway tour would be off. Then the cruise is great up and down the Seine like the last posters said. If you have the money, hire a car and driver to get around to your sites and they will wait for you where ever you may be. Get a guide book and jot down all the sites you want to see and give it to your driver to figure out the route. A friend and I drove a car through Paris during the World Cup 1998 and had a blast. Finding parking space was hard sometimes so we got another friend to drive around while we tour. He picked us up at destinated spots, and we covered a lot of ground.

I was also going to mention the Segway tour ... unfortunately, the biggest treasures I have found in Paris have been walking around from one place to the other, so unless there is a physical limitation I would recommend a little walking. ;-)

Travel Tips for Paris

Eat and drink at every little...

by Robinski9

Eat and drink at every little sidewalk cafe'. The weather was beautiful when I went there so sitting outside an drinking beer, wine, or just San Pellegrino was great. You have to watch out for the birdies lurking in the trees above the cafe's though! Very treacherous! (side note...if you zoom in on this pic, you'll notice a 'good natured' riot. That's supporters of an Israeli football team). :) We met a bunch of people from Massachusetts our last night there. We had intended to go to bed early since we had a flight first thing in the morning. We stayed up until 5 AM and closed the first bar we were at and then opened another for 'dinner' and more wine!!!

Île de la Cité - Prefecture of Police

by kris-t

Prefecture of Police (wish provides the police force for the city of Paris) and Palais de Justice situated on the Cité island. Bullet holes are still visible in the now Prefecture de Police building. They result from the French Resistance forces endeavour to free Paris from Nazi occupation in 1944. The building was then a Nazi headquarters.

The ultimate in Franco-American...

by aemilys

Well I must say that I've had very great success in installing this as a screensaver at work.

The best was when one of the lawyers came in with a little pin an American client had given him with the US and France flags intertwined and I said non, mais non, the true meaning of Franco-American is here...
