Paris - When will the rain stop? And some real questions

Jump to last reply

Arriving Thursday morning May 3rd. Will the rain ever stop (rhetorical question)? :(

We will be in Paris 5 days/nights and then driving to Amboise for three nights. We are going home from CDG on May 11th (ninth day) departing 7 pm. My original plan was to leave Paris in the morning and see the chateau in Chambord on our way to Amboise. And on our last day, heading north, perhaps stop in Versailles before getting to CDG late afternoon. I am planning to purchase the 6 day Museum Pass and am wondering if we should flipflop and see Versailles on the way to Amboise because it will be the 6th day of the pass and Versailles admission is included. Does it make sense to stop in Chambord on the last day? Is there another site not far out of the way that you would recommend (like Fountainbleu)?

Another concern, regardless of the order of our itinerary, is visiting a site with the trunk of our car fully loaded. I think someone posted in the last week of a friend's trunk broken into in France despite nothing being visible in the car. I always worry about this, but have been lucky so far. What do you do?

Paris restaurants - is vat and service always included? Do menus say it? Does everyone order bottled water as you would in Italy?

As always, thanks for any input!
