"Drilling down": some specific questions about our Paris trip

Jump to last reply

I can't help it, I am obsessed. I woke up in the middle of the night in a panic that there wouldn't be an English speaker to help us buy train tickets. So I compiled this little list of nagging questions. I know you can help.

1. Will there be ATMs in the airport to get Euros? We will need them for the taxi.

2. We will be on two early morning trains, to Vernon and to Bayeux. What is the best way to go about buying tickets. I have looked at the website and see the trains we want to take, but would like to wait till we are in France to purchase. Is there a ticket booth with an English speaker in Gare St. Lazare? Can I buy tickets well ahead of time?

3. We are planning Giverny on a Sunday. The plan was to see the estate, then walk back to the village, poke around and have some lunch. Are they open on Sunday? Any recommendations?

4. We are planning two Paris Walks excursions: Montmarte and Marais. Any suggestions for lunch in these areas?

5. We meet our Context guide at Cafe Palais Royal on the corner of Rue St. Honore and Rue de Valois. It would be convenient to lunch there prior to the tour. Tripadvisor has decidedly mixed reviews. Any personal experience?

I have really enjoyed all the research I have done in planning this trip. I know things can and will go wrong, but still .....
