We are booked for a pre stay at the Pullman Paris Montparnasse 19 Rue Du comm Mouchotte. We know nothing of the area but that it is in the Left Bank area and near the metro. We are 4 active ladies that will be seeing the Lourve with the cruise. What should be do for the day we arrive and the next day. Yes, will go the the Eiffel Tower, take pictures etc. Looking for a Wine/cheese tasting, a cooking class, a good shopping area.
And yes some fine French cusine. If we decide to do a night cruise around the city. Which one is not a rip off and has a good reputation for service?
Also, since the Moulin rouge is so expensive and has mixed reviews suggestions on perhaps another show that is very popular.
We are all seasoned New Yorkers and know just how overpowering a large city can be to Tourists. Really would like to avoid traps and do as the natives do.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Now for the cruise. If you have done the cruise and have found some out of the way places to see or things to do please let us know. It would seem that you have a few hours on your own at each port except of course Normandy. So any suggestions on great
restaurants, bistros, bakeries? Shopping. Places of interest.
So far everyone has enjoyed this cruise, I hope we do too.
