I am writing a series of guides to spending holidays in the cosmopolitan cities of Europe. This guide is one on how to spend New Year’s in Paris. Wouldn’t that be romantic? And such fun!
I give you suggestions on how to get to Paris from both the US and from the United Kingdom, then go into great detail about getting from the airport to the city. Of course, if you go by rail you’ll be in the city.
I found a lovely site about which words and phrases in French will be useful, then I found a map of the public toilets of Paris. I always have a problem, so I thought this would be helpful.
There is an extensive list of types of accommodation in Paris, but then I go into the restaurants. The food! I list sites that will guide you to not only the fanciest and most well regarded restaurants in the city, but also the neighborhood bistros and historic places to eat. You might want to have a French 75 at the bar where Hemingway spent his afternoons.
There are sites that will help you get reservations for both New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day and I also give some information on French customs at this time of year.
There are guides to the important landmarks, and to clubs and places for dinner and dancing.
I list ways that you can travel to other parts of Europe.
