We were four couples who all ride high-end road bikes at home and have traveled extensively throughout Europe, mostly bringing our own bikes. After this experience it is not likely we'll ever bring our own bikes again. Sam's attention to detail and fit were amazing....MoreThank you so much "Team M."!!

This beautiful museum, once a railroad station, now houses a staggering collection of Impressionist art, as well as other items created between 1848 and 1914. In 2011, the museum is running a renovation of the top floor (impressionist gallery). Only ground and medium floor are accessible. The top floor will re-open on the 20th of October. Meanwhile, some impressionist masterpieces are not visible.
On our last full day in Paris we visited Musée d’Orsay. We got there early (and thank god we did) arriving at 09:40 just after opening to join a huge queue which stretched to the corner of the block. It took us just over an hour to get in, but it was worth the wait.
Also being the first Sunday of the month, entry was free which was a real bonus though the full price ticket is only €12 per adult.
On arrival we head straight up to the 5th floor to the only cafe which was open at the time. Worth noting that until 11:45 they only serve tea, coffee, cake and desserts so we ordered tea, a pint of cola and my husband had a Belgian waffle. Once lunch could be ordered I had the Salade Parisian and my husband the Fois Grais.
Both of which was very nice and all in all cane to around €45
We started our visit on the 5th floor after our lunch and it is without a doubt the best section.
With a huge collection of Monet, Renoir you would not be disappointed by the majority of Exhibitions. I particularly liked the Sisley collection.
Having arrived at 11:15 we departed around 14:30.
It’s a stunning museum with a collection which I am sure would have something for everyone.
I’ll be honest, I was very surprised by how much of the art work I really liked. I would never have classed myself as a fan of the Impressionists as our personal art collection is very modern day while quite eclectic to say the least but there were a number of the Monet and Sisley pieces which I found quite stunning.
For €12 each you cannot go wrong with a visit to this beautiful museum which in itself is a piece of art, originally an old railway station, this old building is something to be admired in its own right.
Would absolutely recommend if you can stand the queues.

C La Vigne is a boutique company specializing in vineyards and wineries day tours to Champagne region from Paris. Our tour is intimate as we travel in a small group (maximum 6 people). You will be accompanied by an experienced and friendly wine Professional to discover the Champagne making process, get familiar with the wine tasting technique and, of course, have a leisurely day of fun!
Peggy was extremely knowledgeable. The first two champagne houses were entertaining and personal. The restaurant for lunch was excellent. Our tour of the region was fun and informative. The least enjoyable part was Moet and Chandon which could have been any of the really large wineries in Australia, but Peggy can't help that.

It's an incredible place, seeing the tide coming up so quickly it's mesmerising. The only negative point we found is this one: we wanted to wait for the 20: p.m. tide, after having visited the abbey. We wanted to just sit in a cafe to have a beer or something like that, watching the tide coming up. Nothing, at 6 p.m. every bar or restaurant (but one, internal) was closed. Not a very marketing-clever idea, but maybe there was something going on we didnt' know about.

This performance hall hosts opera, ballet and chamber music Performances.
Grand looking building both inside and outside, excellent place for photo taking. Just one minor issue regards left behind your ID before you can rent the audio guide. Really? That's a bit strange. I would rather to be asked for higher rental fee for it.

This is a must see when in Paris. Even on a cloudy day, the glass was brilliant and beautiful. So interesting to even understand some basics about why it was built- to house some of the valuables the king had. However, he spent more on building this small Cathedral to house them.

This famous Cathedral, a masterpiece of Gothic architecture on which construction began in the 12th century, stands on the Île de la Cité and is the symbolic heart of the city.
Notre Dame is an unbelievable stucture with some of the largest bells in history. You can climb up the towers to the first floor where there are fascinating gargoyls and great views. You must check out the bell tower and see the biggest bell you've ever seen! If you dare you can go right to the very top of one of the towers and get some great shots of Paris.

Completed in 1889, this colossal landmark, although initially hated by many Parisians, is now a famous symbol of French civic pride.
