les egouts?

by landlady1999

hi guys! I know there's a sewers museum in Paris. HEard some gossip, people illegally visit les egouts in Paris. Is it true? Does anyone know anything about such urban kind of tourism?

Yes, there is a formal sewers museum and I have been through it. Quite interesting and not at all smelly (I guess they take you through the storm sewers and not the santiary system).

It's unique. We found out, for instance, that Paris has both a blackwater system and a greywater system. Talk about being ahead of it's time.

Here's the website:

You can legally visit the Catacombs of Paris. Here's a web link: http://www.paris.fr/portail/loisirs/Portal.lut?page_id=9675&document_type_id=5&document_id=19970&portlet_id=23835

You may want to check the latest National Geographic magazine. There's an article about Paris underground. It's pretty amazing.

Also, many of the City of Paris museums are free (catacombs are not free). You can check them at http://www.paris.fr/portail/loisirs/Portal.lut?page_id=4693

Enjoy Paris.

Re: les egouts?

by landlady1999

the point is, I've already been to both official catacombs and egouts museums :)
and I must agree with you, guys - they both were interesting and purposeful. But illegal.. it temps as well :)

Re: les egouts?

by GrumpyDiver

Illegal to visit the Egouts and Catacombs; hardly. Quite interesting and legal.

I have heard that there are private (and even initiation ceremonies) at les Egouts.

@ Beausoleil: does the National Geographic article exist online?

Re: les egouts?

by Beausoleil

Elisa, I don't know. I'm old fashioned enough to read the actual magazine; have never looked online. It is their cover article so I would think they would put it online. Surely there will be information related to it.

It's funny. My grandparents had a subscription so I grew up reading the Natl. Geographic and when we married, we subscribed. I have most of them well organized (by my husband) in slip covers from the 1970s. The kids used them in school for papers. One actually cut up one of Mom's Geographics and it took years to replace it in a used book store. LOL

Travel Tips for Paris

Museum Pass

by GrumpyDiver

If you are planning to visit lots of museums, the pass has to be one of the best bargains in town. We bought the 4-day pass and broke even after 1-1/2 days. The next 2-1/2 days were effectively "free".

If you are not planning to do the museum route, don't bother...

Take a walk down the Champs...

by cutexan

Take a walk down the Champs Elysees, see the Eiffel Tower at night, see the Mona Lisa at The Louvre, and visit the Rodin Museum to see the Thinker. I miss the great weather. It was about 70 degrees everyday and cool at night. I miss the friendly people and their relaxed attitude. They aren't stressed out like the Americans, and they enjoy taking several hours for a meal.

go to La Madeleine...
This...

by MVMT

go to La Madeleine...
This neo-classical Church is north of Place de la Concorde at the end of rue Royale. Built in style of a Greek temple, it was consecrated in 1842 after almost a century of design changes and construction delays.
It was started on plan based on church of Saint-Louis des Invalides. A new architect, Couture, razed what had already been erected to begin a building modeled on the Panthéon. All work ceased between 1790 and 1806 as various projects were considered. Napoleon announced that on this spot should be erected a temple to the glory of the Great Army and gave the commission to Vignon.
Once more, the existing monument was razed and building started on the Greek Temple.
In 1814, Louis XVIII confirmed that the Madeleine should be a church.
In 1837, the building was nearly selected for use as a Paris' Premier railway terminal (between Paris and Saint-Germain).
In 1842, the Church was consecrated.

The Church is surrounded by 52 Corinthian columns standing 20 meters tall.
The monumental staircases on the south side has one of the best panoramas of Paris, down rue Royale, to place de la Concorde, across la Seine to l'Assemblée Nationale

Be Polite and Courteous!

by longsanborn

I've heard that the French don't like to speak in English. Well, do you blame them? English is not their language after all. Well, for a tourist like me who could barely speak French, I learn a few basic french words to be polite. How polite you are in French to the Parisians will most likely determine how polite and helpful they will be to you.

Every time you meet someone french, begin the greeting with "Bonjour" and when your conversation is finished and you are ready to leave, end the conversation with either "Merci. Au revoir, Monsieur/Madame". In the evening, you say "Bon soir ". Saying goodbye at night is "Bon nuit".

In my experience, when I tried to ask questions in my very bad broken French, the Parisians will resignly asked me to revert to English ~ just so I don't destroy or blasphemize with their lovely language more... LOL !!

Electricity in France is 220V...

by Chris_Dahlia

Electricity in France is 220V at 50 Hz. Most laptop computer and digital camera power supplies can function on this power and at most you'll need a mechanical adaptor. Business hotel rooms often are equipped with an American-style plug near the desk. If not, the hotel will lend you an adapter.
