Help in Paris/Loire - Book 2 months early for Notre Dame, Chateaux, etc?

Jump to last reply

I am planning to go to Paris and Loire with friends in early July, travelling from Amsterdam. It seems everything is so tense when booking hotels, car, tickets during the peak tourist season. It kind of forces me to plan and book all visits now with no chance for impromptu, relax vacation. Do I need to book now (2 months ahead) for:

Train ride from Amsterdam to Paris?
Tickets to Notre Dame, Versailles and other Paris Museums?
Tickets to Chateaux in Loire to avoid the lines?

Or can I wait till 2 weeks prior because many tickets are non-changeable in terms of date, maybe time slot?

If early booking is needed, is the venue website better or those third party ones?



I have already booked the Firework Show at Versailles for July and all hotels for the entire trip. It kind of seem silly to book so early but I get worried when hotel rooms are disappearing every few days!!

Thanks
