More on Senior Travel in France

Apr 22nd, 2010 | By James E Becker | Category: Senior Travel

Just France presents France as the most visited country in the world. It has everything that you could ever want to see on your holidays: a great city like Paris, good beaches, more monuments than any other country, lovely nature, incredible mountain scenery; need I go on?

France is also a very pleasant place to stay. It has good food, great wines and people enjoy their lives. And the best thing is, maybe apart from Paris, living in France does not have to be expensive.

The North of Franceconsists of the flatlands around the town of Lille and the English Channel. This area will remind visitors in many ways of Belgium and the Netherlands. The Grand Place in Lille for example is a lot like the one in Brussels.  Here are some valuable aids for seniors if you have never visited La Ville Lumière (Paris):

Parisfrance.com is a hyper-loaded site. Paris, like New York, London, and Rome, is one of the western world’s most important cultural capitals.  It is a must-see city for globe-trotting tourists – a place everyone should visit at least once in their lifetimes.  Located in northern France along the banks of the River Seine, Paris is the largest city in France with a population of 2 million in the city and 10 million more in the surrounding land.  It is perhaps the loveliest city I know for walking. 

With the Métro (subway) system that can take you just about everywhere in the city with ease, you have the ticket to Paris.  Here is a site on how to use the Métro.  I suggest you buy a carnet, that is ten tickets at one time as it is cheaper and you will probably use them rather quickly. Using the Métro (subway) and buslines is an ideal way to visit Paris, particularly if your time in the City of Lights is limited. Before purchasing your tickets, I would suggest considering the number of days you’ll be sightseeing in Paris and how many times per day you’ll be using public transportation.  There is always more to see and do than time permits in Paris, so plan your days carefully.  Go to GOOGLE and YAHOO and type in: Travel Paris.  You will be busy for quite some time.  Take good notes. jeb
