Halldis Apartment Rentals

by 1cttraveler

Has anyone used Halldis to rent a Paris apartment? Are they reliable?

Re: Halldis Apartment Rentals

by hawkhead

We used Halldis to rent an apartment in Venice. They are 100% reliable, I would not hesitate to use them again. They gave us terrific service, right from the first contact - they said that while the flat we were inquiring about was available, they would recommend another one much more central - it was much larger and cost less! All the communications were clear and concise, the instructions were accurate and everything went as they said.

What a coincidence - your name and the name of the website are the same!!!

Travel Tips for Paris

I don't speak French. do you?

by irvbur

I don't expect people in whose country I am visiting, to speak English. So, I have the desk clerk of my hotel write the name of those locations that I wish to visit on the back of a hotel card in the native language. I write the name of that location in English, on the front. You can get around by bus or taxi (or even ask directions on the street) by showing this card. It also gets you back to your hotel when you're finished for the day. The cards make great keepsakes if you're keeping a scrapbook or journal.

Visit Chammps D'Elysee and...

by Bavavia

Visit Chammps D'Elysee and walk along the streets, also you must explore by riding Metro, getting off on various stops and just exploring the area. There are metro stations everwhere to get you back if you get lost and very easy to navigate Just exploring the area and visitng stores, looking at the beautiful architecture, and residential streets, eating at the restaurants along the way, all was quite pleasant.

The 10th Arrondissement

by Lady_Mystique

Most of the 10th is... fairly uninspiring, particularly the areas around two of Paris' train stations.

Shoppers looking for crystal, porcelain, and faience, however, may head to the rue de Paradis where the Musee de Cristal de Baccarat is also found.

Perhaps the most interesting neighborhood in the 10th is the eastern portion by the Canal St. Martin built during the time of Napolean I. The quais along the canal are very charming

Strange Local Customs

by Elisabcn

French people have strange local customs! If you wander around Paris (and France in general) you will notice lots of statues without their heads. Strange aesthetic values? A French colleague who recently went to Greece told me that you could also see beheaded statues there. Ahhh, but this is not the same! That was Art recycling: in Roman, Greek times statues were the expression of the reality idealized, the regular proportions, bla bla bla and when an emperor died instead of doing another sculpture they kept the same body and only changed the head, which even if it was also idealized, had the new character’s main features.
Here we could talk about the famous “guillotine”. It is difficult to establish its origins because it has different ancestors that appeared during the XIIth, XIIIth and XVth centuries in Italy, the current Netherlands and in North Europe. We hear for the first time about the mechanical beheading method using the device that nowadays we know as “guillotine” during two speeches in l’Assemblée Constituante (10th October and 1rst December 1789) when Dr Joseph Ignace Guillotin, considered this execution method more « human » than the hanging or the beheading with an axe because the death was immediate.

« Le couteau tombe, la tête est tranchée à la vitesse du regard, l’homme n’est plus. À peine sent-il un rapide souffle d’air frais sur la nuque. »

Furthermore, having only one method of execution was also seen as an expression of equality among citizens (can we apply . . . égalité et fraternité also here?) because before that different execution methods were used depending on the kind of crime and the condemned man’s social condition. The guillotine will be used from 1792 until 1939.
But I have a my theory about this particular French taste for the beheaded bodies . . . do you know who is the saint patron of Paris? Saint Denis!, a Christian bishop, who was martyred in approximately A.D. 250 and . . . decided to wander around Paris with his beheaded head preaching a sermon the entire way!!!! (picture 4)
After all this lucubration and even if hairdressing salons in Paris are well-known throughout the world, I think I will wait until my next trip to Barcelona to have my hair cut!!

Depends on your trip mood

by Yseut

Depends on your willingness to carry more than one bag... at least when you arrive in Paris.
You can buy an extra bag if you need it ! Depends on the season ! Bring your doctor's prescription if you need to buy special medicine. If you forget sometinh : don't worry !
There are supermarkets in France too !!!
