Subject: Re: Around Paris
Just back from a quick trip to Paris, Paolo, during which I spent more time in a car than usual ( a friend who lives there was driving - NOT ME!). We have driven into and out of Paris a few times - once you get close to the city, it's hard to find a time when the peripheriques (ring roads) are not quite busy. Most residents strive to avoid them if possible. I'd just echo the usual warning against driving in the city - I still think a car is a handicap, mostly due to parking challenges, but also due to the city traffic. I'm sure you're well aware of that since you live in a city as well. Happy travels- Anne in VA
