    It was absolutely amazing no complaints at all. Just go on foot because it can get very busy. Make sure you pack your own food because all the prices go way up. I would definitely go again!

    I ran this in October 2021, after two previous postponements with Covid. It was well worth the wait.

    The route is just stunning. Think of almost any of Paris's many landmarks and the route goes past almost every one. From a start in a packed and pumped Champs Elysee, Le Louvre, Opera Garnier, Bastille, through Vincennes, back along the Seine and with the Eiffel Tower coming out from the sky at around 28k. You finish coming out of the Bois de Boulogne with the Arc de Triomphe in sight. They are testing this route for the Olympics in 2024 and that will be some spectacle.

    I ran in glorious sunshine, and Paris like this is just sublime. If you get that, you will have the race of a lifetime. The course was well stocked with water and food stops, and cake in particular every 5k or so was a big winner.

    The expo is out in Porte de Versailles, but was well organised and big enough. Only gripes are needing to get a doctor's certificate for it, issues with the website/app service. The medal is sadly a disaster: essentially just advertising the sponsor, trying to be kooky (I think(, has little to identify with Paris and is made as cheap and as flimsy as possible. A medal for a city like Paris shouldn't be hard to do well, but this one is the worst I have seen. I'd probably run it again just to get a proper one.

    Nothing but good things to say about the city itself, other than try to stay a day or two after to properly enjoy it. And when booking hotels, there really isn't much difference in size and quality for a lot of them. Booking the location is key; ideally away from the main tourist spots where real Paris still exists. Many of the hotels will be exactly the same anyways, unless you can afford something very special.

    Bot tickets at the last minute on the Roland-Garros website. Name is assigned, so tickets can't be scalped making seeing tennis a reasonable price! Rain and umbrellas a nuisance. The bathrooms at Suzanne Lengren stadium are choas (bottle neck of traffic in this area). Limited options of food. Tennis and venue, however, were great. For all you need to know about roland-garros visit my TA trips page ETBtravelphotography, https://www.tripadvisor.com/Trips/89320353/Paris

    This is my third visit toParis Photo and this year was one of the best. There is almost too much to take in. I spent the entire four days at the venue and saw amazing work, beautiful books, and excellent artist talks. The highlight for me was getting to hear Josef Koudelka speak. He has always been one of my heroes and a hugh=e influence on my work. I would absolutely recommend attending this if you are the least bit interested in photography.

    The key conference centre in paris. As a meeting centre, ok quality and facilities. There’s a small shopping mall, plus restaurants and cafes for the conference crowd. Also many restaurants and cafes outside. The hyatt regency and le meridien hotels are next door

    We happened upon this by chance and it would appeal mostly to youngsters (which I am certainly not). However, we walked the length of the crowded parade by the Louvre and it was quite easy to enjoy a lot of the music mixes and beats but mostly it was enormous fun to watch people enjoying it - there was a lot of singing dancing and laughter which was infectious. There were specific floats by children and older musicians. It did rain, umbrellas were no use in the crowd. The usual festival advice applies, bring water, snacks and waterproofs.
    Police presence was low key and we didn't see any problems at all.

    This was the second time that Nuit Blanche (otherwise known as White Night) was taking place during our visit to Paris. The first time, we identified several activities that sounded terrific, only to find that the lines at each site were way too long to attend. We ended up hanging around Hotel de Ville, checking out the art and music and food vendors. So this time we knew not to get our hopes up. And we were right. So we strolled between several outdoor art installations, enjoying the city night lights along the way. Kudos to Etienne Krakennuhl's Bing Bang sound installation. Awesome!!

    It’s very small maybe about 10 stalls. If you are walking past then have a look but I wouldn’t detour to visit here. It is right next to the metro station.
