I was in Paris for the New year’s Eve last year. I had a Cruise with “La Marina”. It was great ! Unforgettable !

Jamie 08/12/2014 - 6:09 pm

What is a good ‘family friendly’ (13 & 11 yr old) restaurant for NYE, possible view of Eiffel Tower?

stillinparis 08/12/2014 - 8:06 pm

For View on the Eiffel Tower try a diner Cruise on the seine , it can be a little bit expensive.
You can also try the Ciel de Paris on the Montparnasse Tower. “Les ombres” is less “familly friendly” . LA Mère catherine at Montmartre can be a good solution but there is no view on the Eiffel Tower.

American WorldTraveler 12/12/2014 - 3:12 am

For a single female traveling to Paris, what would be the best recommendation for New Year’s Eve? I’m guessing some events or venues wouldn’t be as safe or comfortable attending solo.

stillinparis 12/12/2014 - 2:21 pm

Thanks for reading us, Paris is not really unsafe. Some district could be uncomfortable for single woman like pigalle or place de Clichy.
Being alone in Champs Elysées Avenue for the new year’s count-down could be not very pleasant.
All Events presented there are safe and ok for a single woman. Most of parties take place in select night-clubs

American WorldTraveler 15/12/2014 - 7:55 pm

Excellent, thank you so much for your informative reply. This 30-something lady will have a lovely evening.
