Helpful tips for Paris-ophiles

The annual Rendezvous France event hosted by A Tout France, the French Tourist Board, yielded some interesting information. The Louvre is planning to implement online tickets next fall. This is great news if you don't want to purchase a museum and monuments card and don't want to stand on lengthy lines to buy your single admission tickets! I also learned that folks wanting to purchase tickets for the TGV's or other French trains can now go right to the SNCF website and order and print your tickets in advance of your trip. This should help you purchase a less expensive ticket than from other reliable intermediary online sources like Rail Europe.

You can order timed tickets for the Eiffel Tower online now. A major improvement!

The Turner and his contemporaries show at the Grand Palais is getting major accolades. Lengthy lines abound but you can always order tickets in advance from the Grand Palais website.

I'm in Spain now, about to lead a Pays Basque culinary tour. Back in Paris on 4.22. News and photos to come. Safe travels.
