Dear fellow travelers,
My husband and I will be in Paris for the first time this November. We booked an apartment in the 14th right near the Raspail Metro line. I have travelled all over where I used subway and trains regularly as well as walked a ton. But after reading some of the posts from other TA folks about the time involved in taking the Paris Metro, I'm wondering if my location choice isn't so great. I originally chose St. Germaine area, but my husband saw the apt in the 14th and felt it was close enough for what we wanted to but away from the hustle and bustle. My thought is, we will be in the hustle and bustle all day while touring and once we get back to our apt we won't be...because we'll be alone in our apt. He's going on this trip for me, so I wanted him to have some say where we stay. I didn't want to suggest changing the apt, unless it will take away from the quality of our short visit.
Our planned activities:
Visit the Eiffel Tower
Cruise the Seine
Food Tour in St. Germaine and/or Marais
Wander the streets of Paris discover things
Have some great meals and cheese, cheese, cheese!
Any thoughts on our location?
Thanks so much :)
