Thinking of Paris in September--advice?

Jump to last reply

We were thinking of going to Harry Potter in Florida, but with the exchange rate, Europe is sounding like a better idea.

We went to London and Paris in Mar/Apr 2014. Loved both cities. Husband is thinking of going back to Paris in September. We *were* thinking of Rome/Florence/Venice next year, but that would likely be postponed if we go to Paris.

So, September is still high season, costwise? If we could delay to October, would that be...well, better as in cheaper? Or does it really not make that big of a difference?

How’s the weather during those two months? I know no one can clearly predict it, but typically?

I thought Husband was thinking of a week; come to find out, he’s thinking of TWO weeks. I know, we could do a week in Paris and one in Rome (skip the others for now). If we were to do that, what would be the best way to get there? I’m assuming open-jaw into Paris/out of Rome--but what about between them? Fly? Train?

I don’t know if he wants day trips or what. I’ve bookmarked some websites about that, but will take suggestions. He has said that he would rather not drive overseas; drive elsewhere in the US, fine, but he’s just not comfortable with the idea of driving overseas. So, given that, is there a way we could see any parts of Normandy and WW2 sites? Would we be better off with a tour group for that? Suggestions, if that’s the best way, given our given?

When we were there last year, we stayed at the Hotel Dieu. Yes, it was a very simple room, but Husband really liked the location (and there was a bread festival going on in front of Notre Dame that week). Since they bill in Euros, the price would actually be lower in dollars than before.

Any help would be most appreciated. We have a bit of time, but want to get cracking.

Jolly for us, a friend invited us to visit her this month--in Honolulu. Yeah, terrible. We’re trying to enjoy life before we get too old or our health issues flare (they’re under control now, but who wants to take chances).
