RESTAURANTS (the best of)

There are hundreds of kosher restaurants in Paris.  The locals generally don't eat the meat under Beis Din as they don't require Glatt meat.  But they will eat everything else under Beis din.

-Versailles Palace and Gardens. Never wait on line to buy tickets. 1. Use museum pass 2. Buy in advance 3. There are vending machines near the bathrooms (you have to poke around to find them) without lines. (if you go during a really busy time and the line seems endlessly long, go to the gardens first and return to the palace in the afternoon when lines are shorter)

-The Great Synagogue (La Victoria) is beautiful but the main shul is only open on Shabbos mornings for Shacharis, but definitely worthwhile if you're there over Shabbos (Metro: Notre-Dame-de-Lorette -12)

Hotels:
-Park Hyatt Paris (Hyatt cat 7) is an outstanding value for your points. They used to give a phenomenal kosher breakfast but now it's barely even worth requesting.  Still rooms are a decent size for Paris, the Spa facilities are very nice, and the intoxicating smell used throughout the hotel for forever be linked with the romance of Paris. Ideally located between the Opera and Tuileries metro stations.
The Park Hyatt has free parking, though driving and parking elsewhere in Paris is very difficult.
The Park Hyatt has also complimentary bikes for guests.
There is a backdoor for entry on shabbos.

-The Westin (SPG cat 6) is not as luxurious at the Park Hyatt but is located nearby and does the trick if you only have Starpoints and not Chase or Hyatt points.

Shabbos meals:
-Chabad of Champs Elysees has great shabbos meals and you're sure to bump into other tourists there as well to share tips.
It is a 30 minute walk to the Park Hyatt, but the walk is quite lovely via the Tuileries Gardens and the Champs Elysees.
Reservations are required: http://www.chabadchampselysees.com/templates/articlecco_cdo/aid/888847/jewish/Shabbat-at-Chabad-Champs-Elyses.htm
-if you don't/can't eat at Chabad, they suggest getting takeout from Ben & Cook located in the 8th. Hashgacha: rabbinate Lubavitch De France 33 1 45 61 03 95. 35 Euro for 2 challas, 2 dips, meatballs with noodles or veggies for 2. they close at 3pm on Fridays (in the summer). call for more info

There is no eruv in Paris. Consider taking the metro to shul with your talis bag along with return tickets for motzei shabbos.

Transport from CDG:
-If you are going to the Opera area you can take the RoissyBus (pronounced Wahsee-Boos as you will get blank stares if you ask for the Royzee-Bus) which goes there nonstop. You can pay by credit card in the RoissyBus waiting station or on the bus.  The cost is €10.  It is a 5 minute walk to the Park Hyatt.

-There are also train options from CDG: the subway is located in terminal 2E/2F, to get to paris its ligne B (Blue) it should take approximately 30minutes to get to Gare Du Nord
it cost 9€10 each way per person

- Shimon taxi: 0(1133)6 98 27 16 08  Tamidshuttle@gmail.com

- Uber is the best option to get to paris cheapest and fastest
- Blacklane.com has luxury cars for around 50 Euro. Very easy to book online.

Metro:
The subway is fast, efficient, and cheap. A book of 10 tickets is 13,30€ for adults and 6,65€ for kids.
The subway closes between 12:30 and 2am.

Map:
Streetwise Paris cannot emphasize enough, this is really a must. Of course, if you have GMaps and data you don't need this map unless you really like paper.

Other Tips
-If you plan on visiting several of the items covered by the Museum Pass - make sure to check it out and price out your options.  Many times it is worth it to get a one-day or multi-day Museum Pass to save some money and more importantly, time (see link for more details: http://en.parismuseumpass.com/)
-Double check days when museums/sites are closed as many do close on different days of the week.

Hi Everyone,

My wife and I are going to Paris at beginning of Sept 2017. We are planning to stay 4 nights in Paris. I have enough points to book awards stays at Hyatt hotels but wondering if  Dan or someone who is a globalist can help with a reservation through Guest of Honor Approach? I was a Hyatt Diamond but was downgraded to explorist this year :-( I wasn't aware about the final “loophole” for a Mattress run from Dan.

anyone ever try and bring meat products in with them to France. We are a large group and I want to bring in food for shabbos as we can't walk to chabbad for meals (have baby and no eruv - not lazy) and it might be simpler to just bring frozen food with us.

Alternatively, if we can't bring stuff with us - any ideas on where we can pick up all of our shabbos needs (besides baked goods) - such as cold cuts, grilled/breaded chicken, sides etc - must be glatt.  I had hoped to order from the le boxe chabbat I posted several pages back, but they have not answered my emails.

I did not experience screening of luggage I brought in if I recall correctly.

Thanks both of you.  When we booked Paris in January from Dan's link seemed like a wonderful idea - but have had an impossible time planning this with a ;arge group of people going (10 people).

We still haven't figured out which restaurants are actually opened, where to get shabbos food for 10 and how to travel to certain places with such a large group.  Even going from the airport to our AirBnB is a challenge!  Most of the TRs are also pretty old and many of the restaurants are long gone....

@AaronCleveland Where did you buy Shabbos food?

All the eateries mentioned here are open:

I'm planning a Paris trip in January. I want to use my 7 night Marriott voucher. (I can upgrade it for 10K SPG / 30K Marriott per category, so which Marriott I go to isn't an issue).

Has anyone been to a Marriott in Paris that they could recommend? And on Shabbos?

Also, any advice on what to do in Paris during the winter?

Thanks

I will be in Paris on Monday March 19th and would like to travel to a premier Ski area.  I can spend the week on the slopes and return for Shabbat or stay over Shabbat with appropriate suggestions. I must be back in Paris Sunday for a 13:30 Flight.   I am looking for suggestions on transportation, resorts, kosher options etc.  Thanks
