    What are some good areas to cycle for recreational riders looking to 1 to 2 week cycling trip in France?

    The Loire valley is pretty exceptional if you want to visit wonderful chateaux, eat great food and avoid steep climbs. Bike tourism is well implemented, with bike-trail signs everywhere and bike-friendly hotels. about 6 years ago

    Sightseeing in Montreal

    Most museums are in the 12$ - 18$ range. The Montreal museum association offers 3-days passes that can include public transit for 5$ extra, which is a good deal. http://museesmontreal.org/ about 6 years ago

    Best way to tour/taste at brandy producers in and around Cognac?

    For Nantes, you cannot miss La Cigale, probably the oldest restaurant in the city. Crêpes are typical of the region and my favorite place is Rêves marins Crêpes marines. After that, the choices are plentiful. Have a look at www.lestablesdenantes.fr. They list the winners of a annual contest in the region. Loof for restaurants listed under "Nantes centre", which should be in walking distance of your hotel, or maybe a short tram ride away. Enjoy ! about 6 years ago

    Ça vaut la peinne aller a Versailles d'autobus??

    I'm not quite sure I understand your question, but I'll give it a try anyhow. Is Versailles worth a visit ? Of course ! Do you need to go with a tour group ? Not at all. From Paris, take RER B (regional train). It's about a 30 minutes ride. The walk from the train station to the entrance is about 10 minutes long. If you are going at a busy time, consider purchasing a Paris Museum Pass. You will be able to cut in front of the line. over 6 years ago

    Best way to tour/taste at brandy producers in and around Cognac?

    The visit of the Hennesy house is very interesting. While it is a large producer, it is very well done and probably easier than a smaller house since you don't speak french. As for driving, plan accordingly ! They include three samples with the tour (when I was there a few years ago) and I could not consider getting back behind the wheel for about an hour after that. Btw, if you need tips on Nantes, do not hesitate to ask. I lived there for a year. It's a wonderful city with great and affordable restaurants. over 6 years ago

    What are some great restaurants in Montreal?

    The new restaurant by Gordon Ramsay is a roasted chicken place and is nothing new. The place has been there for decades. He just bought it and renewed the menu a bit. It probably serves a good burger or chicken, but it's not worth the detour. over 6 years ago
