    Best answer: France along with England had all their soldiers stationed along the border with Germany. The German tanks broke through their line and just kept rolling all the way across France without much resistance. The French and English forces were trapped with their backs to the sea and escaped on boats across the English Channel to England. Yeah, basically Paris was surrendered without a shot being fired although I am not too sure about the details. It was probably to save the city from destruction. It wasn't long before Hitler flew to Paris to celebrate the victory.

  • I'm under 21- can I ship alcohol to the USA legally?

    I'm going to France for study abroad from September until November. I was wondering if it is legal to ship wine from France to my home address in the USA (my parents live there and are obviously over 21).

  • I am going to Paris, which areas are no-go ? Thx?

    Best answer: Stay mainly in the centre (using caution in la Goutte d'Or and around) and avoid going to the housing estates around the outskirts. Places like Clichy sous Bois, Sevran Beaudottes, Aulnay sous Bois, Trappes and Villiers le Bel are all run down, have a lot of crime and are prone to rioting.

  • If Paris has so much tourism, then why do all Air France passengers go to Paris only for connecting flights?

    Best answer: Is what you say true? What evidence do you have?

    So often when people say "all" they mean "many of the instances which, in my limited experience, I know about".

    I'm not sure exactly what time the Eiffel Tower light display show starts, but think it's around 9pm Paris time.
    Thus, if you visit this link you should be able to see the show live - no sound.

    I appreciate that it does not look very live, but it is, and if you watch the clouds you'll see them move change shape etc.

  • What is the cheapest way to Montpellier, France, from CDG airport in Paris?

    Best answer: The problem is that the lines in the train station office can be really long, especially in the summer. There are machines, but you have to have a French credit card or correct change to use them. It can cost a little more to buy your tickets at Raileurop, but I think it's worth it.

    Best answer: The problem is that the lines in the train station office can be really long, especially in the summer. There are machines, but you have to have a French credit card or correct change to use them. It can cost a little more to buy your tickets at Raileurop, but I think it's worth it. I think you can just download and print out the tickets now (we used to have to wait for them in the mail) but check on that before you buy. There are very clear signs in the airport to the train station- you just walk. Then you have to watch the boards on the wall for the train. It will say the destination of the train- which I think will be Montpellier in your case, but sometimes the train will be going farther than your destination. They will put the track number up on that board shortly before the train arrives. Now- this is very important- when you have your ticket in your hand and you go out onto the train platform, there will be a little yellow machine. You stick your ticket in there and it stamps the date and time on it. You MUST do that. If the conductor comes through and checks your ticket, and it's not stamped, you may be fined. That's because you could use the ticket again if it wasn't stamped. There will be a carriage number on your ticket- the numbers are on the outside of the train cars. In a pinch, just get on the train, and you can walk through it to find your car and your seat- they are assigned.

    In addition if leave airport and return will have to go thru' security all over again. Time spent doing that and going back and forth could result in missed flight connection.

    Best answer: If you choose to go to Paris then I would advise you go there first because it can get pretty cold in December. Paris is not difficult to get around at all - the Metro gets you anywhere you want to go - just study the map or ask the concierge and you will find it quite exhilarating to go down a hole like Alice and pop up somewhere else like the white rabbit.
    Do not be tempted to choose a hotel on the outskirts of the city - they are not much cheaper than those within the city and it will take much of your time travelling into the city; there are great hotels right in the centre of Paris. As far as a day trip to Normandy goes you could go with a tour group or catch the train and do it yourself but make sure you have planned in advance - ie which station - tickets in advance etc - don't just go along on the day. 4 days in Paris ? --yes great but enough - I don't know.
    try my website -www.parisindepth.com for some ideas
    Rome is also a fine city - but have you considered how you would get there from Paris - if you only have 10 days probably a flight from Charles de Gaulle would be best. Don't be fooled by distances in Europe - they are not the same as North America which is where I assume you are from. European distances meander and wander about while N America has straight highways.
    I hope this helps somewhat - but I have to say that 10 days for all you mention is pushing it a bit - don't forget that on the outskirts of Paris there's the Palace of Versailles, Fontainebleau, Chartres, and many other places which are all wonderful day trips you can do by yourselves quite easily. Perhaps you should consider choosing Paris and returning for Roma another day. I once met an an American couple in Rome who were doing what you propose - they were fed up and exhausted.
