I just saw in a travel brochure the Public Holidays for France in 2006 that show May 8 as Victory day.
This is one of my days in Paris...Does this mean that shops, museums and monuments (eg Arc De Triomphe) will be closed on the day? This is the day I will actually be arriving into Paris early morning and had planned to spend at least half the day doing some sightseeing.
I'd really like to know any alternative suggestions of what I should do on this day.
PS What is Victory Day and how is celebrated?
