1. I just saw an Instagram photo of the Eiffel Tower and a Ferris wheel. Is that Ferris wheel there all year round? thanks!
     
  2. If you are talking about the Big Wheel, I believe it is supposed to be temporary (winter).

    Perhaps you mean le grande roue at the entrance to the jardin de Tuileries?

  7. I am so thankful to read that. I have been stressed about this for a week because I thought they were making a decision within the next 2 months or so then I would be at last minute for my trip in June for my teenage son and I! I kept researching online, but found nothing about how quickly it could possibly be implemented.

    I am looking for suggestions for a hotel that is somewhat close to main attractions like Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Notre Dame, or even the shopping area (LV especially) that is safe and not more than $200 per night (USD) if possible. We are going around June 26 to July 1 (fly into Paris on June 23, but going to London for a few days first). Also, what kind of weather should we expect? I read it can get hot, but is it a dry heat or humid?

    Thank you in advance.

  8. Hi paula3boys! I stayed at the Hotel du Cadran in Rue Cler. It's walking distance to the Eiffel Tower, and really close to the Metro. I am not sure of the rate in June, but it was less than $250 when I stayed there last September. Our room was small but clean, and it's located near lots of restaurants. Enjoy your trip to Paris. I wish I could come back this year!

  9. I was there 2 years ago in the late June - early July. The weather was ghastly - several days over 100, highest was 104. Everyone was hot and crabby. But this was exceptional. A couple of years before that, it was in the 70s. One really can't predict - I started checking the weather regularly 2 or 3 weeks before leaving home. If I ever go in the summer again, I will be sure to look for a hotel with A/C - many do not have it.

    A trip to Paris is always fab, regardless of weather! This year I went in January - no heat waves then!!

  11. yes AC is not common in Europe. Not every Hotel has one. Always look out for that when you travel to Europe!
