Wineries in France are a trip..

by inaweirdway

Wineries in France are completely different than here (assuming you are in the bay area). They aren't really equipped for tourism. My SO and I bought several books about wine tasting in France, and every single place we tried was (a) disappointing from a wine perspective and if not disappointing than too expensive to buy (b) flat out weird... they had tasting hours, but every place we went, the people seemed stunned that someone showed up. We had to basically talk them into giving us a taste, and they were completely unforthcoming with information. We did a lot of research and it was such a letdown

Best Travel Guide to Paris? (or even France, in general)?

I went to Paris last year and used the DK Eyewitness Travel Guide but was wondering if there's a more detailed one available, it's great for a short trip but I'm looking for one where I could plan a couple months for. Any good suggestions for travel guides??

The Dorling Kindersley Eyewitness Guides have always been best for me for detail and practical information- I would recommend the DK France guide and the Frommer's France guide and Best Loved Driving Tours of France. I have found Frommer's in general has the best restaurant information, but I have been often been confused/lost by their street maps- DK's are easier for me to follow. Frommer's does have interesting historical information that I haven't found in other guides. The only advantage of the other guides I've read are that they contain actual admission prices (at the time of…

Travel to WW1/WW2 Battlefield sites....?

Has anyone travelled privately and used local guides to visit these sites? Planning to travel in small family group, 3 males, and wonder if anyone can give advice, contacts etc.

Get a car, a cross channel ticket, a map and a good guide book..thats what ive done in the past..Ive done the beaches of Normandy, The Dams of dambusting fame, Auschwitz , the channel islands , Colditz , the Ardene and whats left of the Somme...The best bit of advice i can give you, especially in France, is to talk to the locals..Most are only to happy to point you in the right direction and you will uncover things and stories(sometimes eyewitness accounts) that the books dont cover..Its amazing what you can discover just by accessing local knowledge
