Transport in Paris

It is a no brainer that one of the most important things to do anywhere you travel is to move around the city. The Paris Metro Pass or Paris Visite will cover all your travel needs in several options to choose from. Covering Zones 1 to 3 or 1 to 5, also available for children!!! It provides unlimited use of all the Paris public system, including RER trains, Metro, buses, etc. You will be able to use it as many times as you want during the validity of this pass. Zones 1 to 3 is the zone range were most attractions and museums are located, while zone 5 area is where CDG AirportDisneyland Resort and Versailles Palace are located.

Dinner Cruise in Paris

homeslider_dinner_cruiseOf course there is nothing more romantic than whatever you plan with your couple, but don’t forget that Paris, the “city of lights” it very well known on being one of the most romantic cities in the world. The Paris Dinner Cruise on the seine, will leave the dock from the foot of the magnificent Eiffel Tower, leading you to enjoy immediately of the astonishing  views of Paris at night. All this experience will be on a cruise covered in glass and transparent side which will allow you to contemplate and enjoy these magnificent sight you will never forget. The romantic atmosphere will be completed by the exquisite tastes the chefs will prepare for you to fill your whole experience with your loved one.
Definitely one of the “must do’s” while in Paris.

Museums in Paris

MuseumPass
Most people know that Paris is the “holder” of one of the most famous paintings in the world, should I say which one? Of course you know it, “La Gioconda” or “Mona Lisa” by Leonardo Da Vinci, so, again, my vote is for the best pass which will cover most museums and attractions in Paris: the Museum Pass. You don’t have to pay  for entrance to get  into the museums, you don’t have to wait in line (except security ones), and there is no limit to the amount of times you can visit them, I mean, this is a VERY good pass! Including in it, the most important museums, like the LouvreOrsayArch of TriumphNotre Dame towers and cryptVersailles Castle and many more.

Moulin Rouge Cabaret

Of course if you think about Paris, other than the Eiffel tower, you will also think about the “Moulin Rouge“. After the movie was launched some years ago, all the glamour and exuberance of this magnificent show implanted one more time in the mind of people all around the world. The Moulin Rouge and it’s famous “Bal du Moulin Rouge” will give you a blast of colors, feathers and costumes with the company of unique music and dancers, mastering the French Can-Can, and international musicians performing in this wold known revue. The energy and entertainment in this spectacle will leave you breathless in this “Paris at its finest” show! Of course, there are other excellent cabarets in Paris, like the Lido de Paris and Crazy Horse, bit I think the Moulin Rouge is the most iconic of them.

Paris Combo Pass

CBPSo I already pointed that it is a no brainer that one of the most important things to do anywhere you travel is to move around the city, so this is my choice for a perfect combination of passes (transport, museums, cruise) between budget/flexibility and comfort on choosing where do I want to start managing my travel: from home or from Paris is the Paris ComboPass®.  One of the abilities of this pass is it can be sent to your home worldwide, or to your Hotel in Paris (pickup locations also available).
You will be able to choose between different options that will suit your exact needs… Including unlimited use of all the public transportation system of Paris, access to the most important museums and attractions, a Seine river cruise ticket, and more.

So that’s it! I hope you found this information useful and you can take advantages of these excellent services.

Welcome to Andorra, the country of the Pyrenees, where the offices of Conciergerie.com are located. An independent state with more than a thousand years of history in the southwest of Europe, between Spain and France.

Andorra is in the heart of the Pyrenees mountains, between Spain and France.  It is the sixth smallest nation in Europe, having an area of 468 km2 (181 sq mi) and an estimated population of 85,000 in 2012. Its capital, Andorra la Vella, is the highest capital city in Europe, at an elevation of 1,023 metres (3,356 ft) above sea level. The official language is Catalan, although Spanish, Portuguese, English and French are also commonly spoken.

Known internationally for its ski resorts, shops with very low taxes and its modern hotel and service infrastructures, each year the country receives nearly 8 million visitors.

Given its relative isolation, Andorra has existed outside the mainstream of European history, with few ties to countries other than France, Spain and Portugal. In recent times, however, its thriving tourist industry along with developments in transport and communications have removed the country from its isolation. Its political system was modernized in 1993, when it became a member of the United Nations and the Council of Europe.

As we commented earlier, this is a great country for skiing. The most important ski resorts are covered by 2 big names in the skiing business, well known in Spain and France, now also worldwide, because of several Ski and Snowboard World Cups managed by these ski resorts.

*************************************************************************************Grandvalira is a resort located in Andorra which covers the skiable areas of two of Andorra’s seven “parishes” (or provinces).

It was founded back in 2003 when two of the Pyrenees’ oldest resorts, Pas de la Casa-Grau Roig (founded in 1956) and Soldeu-El Tarter (founded in 1964), joined together. This fusion gave rise to the largest resort in the Pyrenees and one of the largest in Europe with 210 km of ski run spread over a total of 118 slopes of all different levels, and the creation of one single forfait to enjoy all of the skiable territory.

**************************************************************************************Vallnord is a ski/snowboard resort in the Pyrenees mountains in the country of Andorra, close to the border with Spain at Tor, Pallars.

Vallnord unifies 3 ski resorts: Pal, Arinsal and Arcalis, the “mecca” of freeride in Andorra.

 

It encompasses the linked sectors of Pal and Arinsal (the sectors were linked by a cable car, opened in 2005, from the top of the Arinsal sector) and the Ordino-Arcalis sector some kilometres away.
All the separate sectors within Vallnord contain green, blue, red and black rated runs as well as restaurants and ski schools.
Arinsal is particularly popular with British and Irish tourists, while the Arcalis sector is popular with locals at the weekend

**************************************************************************************Andorra is also a paradise for nature lovers: 90% of the country is forest.

Another very nice place to visit is Naturlandia which is a multiactivities and leisure center from La Rabassa, Andorra. This initiative, inaugurated in 2007, the common Sant Julia de Loria to boost the snowfields of La Rabassa, the only ski resort in the principality and background that looked underused as only used during ski season and also this type of skiing is not as in demand as downhill skiing.

Naturlandia is located at an altitude between 1,960 and 2,160 m with a height of 200 meters.

**************************************************************************************So this is a little bit of our country, where we give service to more than 110 countries from around the world. Maybe you can come one day and say hi! :-)
