Disneyland on Christmas Day

by Rabia118

Hi,

My friends and I are planning to go to Disneyland on Christmas Day. I am aware that most transport services will not run on Christmas Day. Is there other possible transport alternatives to go to Disneyland that day?

Thank you so much for your help.

Re: Disneyland on Christmas Day

I am not 100% certain of the details in Paris but trains do run in France on Christmas Day. If there are no trains, then I suspect that either you will have to drive or take a very expensive taxi ride.

I have looked at the RATP website (www.ratp.info) and I see nothing to suggest that RER line A is not running on December 25th.

I speak under correction, but I think you will find that the Metro and RER will run on Christmas day. In previous years, when I have visited Paris over Christmas, the Metro and RER always ran on Christmas day. It is of course a reduced service, but there is a service.

You can find times for the RER A here - http://www.ratp.info/orienter/f_horaire.php?nompdf=a_sd_mlv&loc=horaires

Hope the link works.

Travel Tips for Paris

Parisian markets

by kokoryko

Notre Dame, Louvre, Sacré Cœur, Champs Elysées. . . . . Yes, all that is Paris, but if you do not spend at least two hours in a marché (market) you missed something which is the real life of Paris and as important as any museum or monument. . . . . .
It is about food markets, the every day’s life markets, where you may catch a bit from local people (I defy you finding real Parisians on Champs Elysées or in front of Notre Dame between 10 am and 8 pm, except shop and restaurant employees). In markets, you hear people speaking French, the Parisian accent, which changes from the upscale 8th or 16th districts to the 19th and 20th popular districts, you see people discussing, bargaining, you can have an idea of what Parisian like to eat, what they buy, and markets are just so lively places. . . . and Paris is very cosmopolite, people from all over the planet live and work here, and in some places, you are in India, North Africa, Central Africa, China, and Central Asia is also beginning to have some districts. . . . that is life, beautiful life of Paris, where all people meet and live together (not always in peace, but not far from. . . ). In one or two generations they will be Parisian and French. . . !
The markets are on the streets, on certain days (in some places, every day), in dedicated market halls, and generally are active from 8 am to 2 pm.
You can of course find every sort of food and products, but be wise a bit, do not look for pork sausages in Muslim corners of markets, or try to find fresh durian in the 16th district. As tourist you may mostly look at all these things and may be here or there, find a Tunisian snack, dry fruits from central Asia, African medicine. . . .
The marché Maubert (first picture), in the St Germain des Prés area (5th district) is one of the oldest Parisian markets, and is now a bit an “upscale market” with luxury products and prices according not to income of people living in the area, but more to the idea people living there make of themselves. . . . . : politicians, journalists, actors, and all sorts of “Parisian night life intellectuals”; so, organic food, and generally excellent products, but hell expensive. (Metro Maubert Mutualité)
On the second picture is Marche de la Chapelle, 18th district, rue de l’Olive, Metro Marx Dormoy; mostly food, with some North African food; familial (and familiar) atmosphere.
The market on Boulevard de Belleville (picture 3) (Metro Belleville) is a very popular one in contrast to the previous one, and if compared to supermarkets, the prices are high, they are very cheap compared to Maubert; and what you find there is almost the same, the atmosphere very nice and popular. The marché Bastille (picture 4), like the previous one is located in the central areas of a broad boulevard; marche bastille, located on Boulevard Richard Lenoir, (Metro Breguet Sabin or Bastille) is about the same style as the marché Belleville. The marche Ordener (picture 5) is a very exotic one, with lost of African food and items to be found; lost of smells reminding some visited places on the planet, or giving the mood to visit these places. . . . (Rue Ordener, rue Myra, Metro Guy Mocquet)
Well, 5 pictures, just 5 different markets. There are more than 80 markets in Paris, and markets are real part of life and to me, at least they are part of a destination when I visit.
The weblink here after is from the official website from the Paris municipality giving the list of Parisian markets, they location, working hours, specialisation, if there is. . . . just learn a little bit French! Travellers are not afraid of (basic) foreign languages. . . . .

You absolutely must walk...

by NineMiles

You absolutely must walk throughout the Opera district -- daytime or night. So much to see and do. You'll find lots of shopping, a number of great restaurants and a ton of site to see. Our first morning in Paris was awesome. We were a bit jet-lagged, but that's the nature of the game, right? We started out by walking from our hotel toward the Louvre (hey, we HAD to see it once). We ate breakfast at a small cafe near the museum. Two things about that breakfast -- YOU CANNOT GET BREAD OR ESPRESSO LIKE THIS IN THE STATES! Awesome, awesome, awesome. I'm getting hungry and thirsty just thinking about how good that meal was.

Oh, and we miss Orangina. I'm sure we can get it here, but it's all over the place in Paris. Anyway, that was a terrific morning. Great start and an incredible vacation. I believe the photo is of Place De La Concorde. We walked there while waiting for The Louvre to begin its reduced price hours.

Sacré Coeur

by GUYON

The Basilic seems to be white when it is lighted by night.
Really, it has a grey colour due to the pollution. When the war with Prussia stopped in 1870, the top of Montmartre Hill was a waste land on which the Garde nationale (Parisian Milice) had hidden its guns.
The 21th March 1871, the French government sent a general to pick them up. The milice resited and it was the beginning of the Commune (one of the numerous Parisian revolution).
The Commune was defeated 3 months later in a river of blood.
The basilic of Sacré Coeur was built from 1876 to 1919 to pay the penalty of the sins of the Commune. For this reason, it was erected at the place where the affaire began.
And it was white to have an image of purity (and also because the Paris limestone is white).

Just moi et toi

by themagiclake

Never our eyes were that close to each other
That close to stick as if for one face
Our eyes are the reality
The truth of the first glaze
That made us fall in love immediatly
Those eyes that smiles next to each other
Like no other lips and mouths could ever do...

Bonjour la France!

by Krystynn

The French are VERY proud of their country, culture and language. :-) Be lavish with your Monsieurs, Madames, Mademoiselles (pronounced as 'Mey-moo-are-zels'), Merci Beaucoup.... and DO greet people with a friendly 'Bonjour' or 'Bonsoir' (if it's after 6.00PM) and NOT - 'Yo, man! How ya doing?!' Not even Eminem can get away with this. ;-)

Some people also say French folks are snooty. I hate to say this - but I'd have to disagree with the critics on this statement. After spending some time in this city and after encountering a most unpleasant situation here, the French people's concern, hospitality and warmth have left an indelible impression on me.

Yes, contrary to popular beliefs, even the most flailing effort to speak halting French will be very much appreciated. Trust me!
