Bastille Day

by zoosue

Do the city buses run on Bastille Day? I've read that the Metro stations are closed then.

Re: Bastille Day

by mariev

Both busses and metros run on the 14 july (sundays' schedule)
The metro stations along the Champs Elyses will be closed in the morning - the others are open.

I was fortunate to be in Paris on Bastille Day. I took the Metro all over. Remember the Metros close around 11 or 12. We had to take a taxi to my hotel because we were too late. Bastille Day is wonderful in Paris.
The fireworks at la tour Eiffel were AMAZING!

I was lucky enough to be there for Bastille Day and found the Metros etc. were running. Watch the night however. Too late and they shut down. We had to get off and take a taxii!

Travel Tips for Paris

Pretend you're Parisian. Put...

by edgarvnl

Pretend you're Parisian. Put away your cameras, backpacks and film vests for one afternoon and just sit in a cafe in the Quartier Latin or along the Blvd. St. Germain. The picture at left shows the Fontaine Saint Michel -- a fountain dedicated by the city to commemorate its deliverance from the Germans. Watching the Eiffel Tower burst into flames on Millenium night. Who says Paris isn't the center of the universe?

Other things:
(1) Go to the excavation exhibit in front Notre Dame Cathedral. Gives you a good flavor of Paris from the time of the Parisii to the 18th century. Every stone tells a story of a different age. Amazing stuff.

(2) Go view the Delacroix painting of Napoleon's coronation in the Louvre. Then go inside Notre Dame de Paris to see where it actually happened. Goose bumps!

(3) Get your hands on a guidebook of Le Marais and do a walking tour of the old aristocratic city houses or hotel particuliers (sp?). They're now embassies and museums, but they used to be private residences.

(4) Spend an afternoon on the grass at Place de Vosges. Best local people-watching spot.

(5) Take the Metro to Les Halles, have a meat-centered meal at le boucher (a restaurant that replaced a historic meat stall in the old market), then visit St. Eustache Cathedral. Impressive stuff.

(6) Another can't miss cathedral is St. Sulpice, by St. Germain des Pres. Next to Notre Dame, it's got the most distinctive facade of any cathedral in the city (in my book).

(7) Have lunch at Place du Tertres by Sacre Coeur on Montmartre. You can get a formule, which is a full menu, including a beer or wine, main course, and desert, for about 40 francs. And the food's good! (Well, it is Paris, after all.)

(8) Okay, this is my thing. If you end up doing this, I'd expect a report afterwards, to see what you thought. On a warm sunny day, pack a stuffed baguette and a bottle of wine, and walk to the park in the back of Notre Dame de Paris. Cross the Seine to Ile St. Louis via that small footbridge with the black metal railings. Take your first right so that you're walking along the river on a street called Quai d'Orleans. Just before the road bends to the left, following the curve of the Ile, there will be a ramp leading to the river bank. Perfect picnic spot. Beautiful view across the river to the right bank and Ile de la Cite and Notre Dame. The Quai itself, with the apartment buildings with flowerboxes is just a classic portrait of Paris.

(9) . Have a crêpe et cidre at Crêperie des Arts on Place St. Andres des Arts in the Quartier Latin. This is a great hangout and you can rub elbows with Sorbonne students during the fall. Nice way to get immersed in Rive Gauche life.

Fountains in the Place de la Concorde

by kris-t

The two fountains in the Place de la Concorde symbolize the fountains in Paris.
The north fountain was devoted to the Rivers. The south fountain, closer to the Seine, represented the seas.
The fountains were built during the time of Louis-Philippe (1773-1850).

La Défense

by GUYON

Spend at least a 1/2 day at La Defense. At only 15 mn from Opera by the Subway (RER) or 30mn by car (there are a lot of public parkings.
3 millions sqm of offices and 60.000 permanent inhabitants. 2 huge malls. A high site of architecture and scupture (on this matter I do not appreciate some of the art pieces). Several kilometers of 'promenade'. 9 traditional cinemas + a 3D cinema (now closed). A lot of restaurants. Some hotels (expensive). See the travelogue 'La Défense'. The picture was taken the 21th June 2003 during the Fete de la Musique.

…And the smells…..

by tiabunna

As many have reported, the French approach to toilets is, um, different. Not before time, there now are free toilets in some streets, but finding a public toilet often is not easy (eg the Halles shopping complex, you may well have to go to a different level): then expect to pay! (In all fairness, the 'pay' toilets were generally well kept). I was suitably astounded at Gare Montparnasse to find the cost of the public toilets 'Pourquoi êtes vous ici: pipi? C’est 0.40€'. Bloody hell, getting rid of a drink costs more than having it! So it is hardly surprising that from time to time, your nostrils will be assailed by the stench of rancid urine as you walk past doorways, laneways or whatever. As I said, accept it, that’s how it is!

Museum of Music

by Kiriel

What a wonderful museum this is! So you have seen the Louvre, visited the Cluny... well now go see something different.

The range of instruments is extraordinary ranging from very early instruments, ethnic instruments right up to the most modern. I have attached some photos that I took inside the museum. When I visited I was lucky enough to arrive during the last days of a fantastic exhibition on the history of music, shown through medieval manuscripts, paintings, sculpture and tapestries.

The normal exhibition is well set out, leading you naturally through the history of the instruments. You will be amazed by the beauty of some and the bizarre nature of others! As a musician my fingers twitched to pick up and play something and as an historian my eyes glowed to see the history before my eyes. And the illuminated manuscripts inspired and impressed me.

I highly recommend a visit to this museum; definitely an "off the beaten track" for Paris.
