Staying in Versailles - need advice

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be staying in Versailles from December 27 to January 4 (I know its out of the way, but the rooms were completely free) at the Trianon Palace Versailles. My husband has never visited France so we will be seeing all the BIG things in Paris. (Montmartre, Louvre, Notre Dame, etc) My questions are as follows:

1) Should we rent a car the whole week we are there? Or just depend on the train back and forth?

2) Outside of the "normal" tourist destinations in Paris, what are some really cool places to visit or restaurants to try? We love hitting the places where the locals eat.

3) Isn't there a Paris underground tour I've read about? I can't find a link anywhere.

4) Any suggestions on how to spend New Year's Eve in consideration of our hotel's location?

5) Is it out of the question to consider day trips to Normandy or Mont - St. Michel?

6) We love wine, we love food and I love driving through the countryside. In consideration of the season, where should we drive where we could enjoy all of these things?
