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.

Activities:
-Segway Tour. Please do not PM Ergel with requests for coupon codes. The codes are long dead
-Seine River Tour
-Eiffel Tour (Metro: Trocadero -6,9)
-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)
-Louvre Art Museum (Closed Tuesday) (Metro: Palais Royal - Musée du Louvre -1,7) Shushan/Purim artifacts that can be seen at the Louvre, per the book Purim and the Persian Empire.

-Arc de Triomphe (Metro: Charles de Gaulle - Étoile -1,2,6)
-Operan National De Paris opera house. tours daily 11:30 and 2:30. Admission included in Museum Pass, tour extra
-Montmartre (Great neighborhood to walk around with boutiques, artists, and great views, and a funicular that kids will love) (Metro: abbesses -12, Anvers -2)
-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.

Guidebooks
Rick Steves' Paris 2013
Fodor's Paris 2013 (Full-color Travel Guide)

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.

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

Best way to travel will probably be TGV and than either rent a car or bus. Ski resorts you have tons of them... Courchevel is a fancy one.

So we want to spend Friday-Sunday evening somewhere that has non-stop back to NYC on Sunday evening. Vienna has eruv but no return flight, and not interested in London, Amsterdam, or Rome (as we have already seen those cities).
Any other ideas?

If you need glatt, Darjeeling is the best bet.

All the meat in Kavod is glatt. Izaaki is phenomenal.

I don't know whether Kavod meat is indeed Glatt or not, but it is under the Beth Din of Paris, so make sure to do your research.

We were at Dajeerling during the summer - it was phenomenal.  We were 11 people, tried multiple apps and mains and everything was fresh and delicious.  The two flavored "breads" are a must try also.  Desert was very good - but not necessary.  Biggest surprise was the bill at the end.  I couldn't get over how cheap it was for the amount we bought.

Yes (meat, not chicken)
I don't know whether Kavod meat is indeed Glatt or not, but it is under the Beth Din of Paris, so make sure to do your research.

There's a full time Mashgiach, so you can ask him.

Any comments on shabbos day davening at LA VICTOIRE Grande Synagogue? they have a cantor and choir starting at 9:30, do you think its crazy to plan to daven there and then run to chabad (40 min walk) for lunch at 1:30?
There's a chabad house 2 minutes from there, but I don't know if they serve shabbos meals, and if they do it would be probably be a less touristy crowd.

The grand shul itself serves shabbos meals, but I'm not sure if Friday Night, Shabbos Day, or both.

In any case walking in Paris is always a good idea...

Of course you can easily ask Izaaki or Kavod etc to double wrap shabbos food for you and have the PH or other hotel store and serve you a proper shabbos meal
