Subject: Re: Paris favorites?
Marlene and all Ziners, I am looking forward to your review of that apartment as it is on my short list for a future trip. For Paris favorites, I agree with the person who listed Paris Walks, I have taken several and enjoyed them - they also do day trips as well - I went to Vaux-le-Vicomte with them a year ago. You can check their website when the time is closer. In case no one mentioned it, I recommend the Musee Jacquemart-Andre which is their family home with a wonderful art collection as well as special exhibits from time to time. Brunch there (I haven't had it myself) has good reviews. Another great museum is the Musee Guimet, with Asian art, that reopened a couple of years ago after a modernization. I would definitely think you have time for a couple of day trips outside of Paris. You can think about Chartres for the Cathedral. Malcolm Miller give tours. Or Versailles, I guess, I have not gotten there yet myself. I did a day trip to Bruxelles - 90 minutes on the TGV. Also Rouen is within range, I hope to go there on my next Parisian trip.

Hope this helps, Mara
