Paris in May

Jump to last reply

This will be our 2nd trip to Paris. Last time, we went around the Xmas/NY holiday and while Paris was lovely, we didn't get to see the flowers bloom or much in the way of outdoor activities. We will be there for 9 days. We have planned a trip to Versailles, Giverny and boat ride on the Seine. Any suggestions on public transportation to Versailles or Giverny? Any specific boat ride? Any other day trips you can recommend?

We visited all the major musuems and sights on our last trip. Any unusual or "off the beaten path" things for a mother and college daughter to do? Perhaps a special tea or lunch? Spa treatments (not too $$)?

We will be renting an apartment at the border of the 6th and 7th from Paris Vacation Apartments (51 rue de Grenelle). Any suggestions for markets, grocdery stores, restaurants, cafes, bakeries, boulangeries, things to do near there would be terrific.

Thanks in advance for your help!
