Gina H :

Yes. I know you poor Parisians are tired of answering stupid tourist-y questions about Paris this and Paris that. I am sorry. Lolz. But seriously I NEED to know this... What's the weather like in Paris/Normandy in June? My friends seem to think it will be cold enough for coats and ugg boots but I disagree. Also how much money will I need for 5 days in Paris and 2 days in Normandy? Has anybody heard of the MIJE centre and is it nice? I would be so grateful if you answered :) xx

opi :
"it will be warm- not cold at all. where'd they get that? leave the coat and uggs at home."
Okaydokay21 :
"It will be warm -- after all it is summer there as well as here..."
Orla C :
"Well, how cold you will be in June in Northern France depends on where you are from. If you are from someplace like the centre of Australia where getting cold means you have to put on long trousers, then yes, you will be cold and need a coat in France. If you are from the UK, no, you won't need a coat or ugg boots (not called ugg for nothing. I must be the only woman in the western world who doesn't own a pair) because the chances are you won't be that cold during the day, and in the evening you might want a shawl or light jacket or jumper in Normandy (because that's by the sea, Atlantic winds never stop blowing). Money: Go with the equivalent of €125 a day each. Then you'll have enough to buy whatever you need. Not sure how Ugg boots would go down in a stylish city like Paris, to be honest .... Otherwise, there's this great little resource called Google.com, use it to find out information. Then you're less like to receive MISinformation from people here."
Rillifane :
"The average temperature in Paris in June is 22 degrees celsius/72 degrees farenheit. Average rainfall is 56 mm or 2.2 inches. The temperature in Normandy is usually somewhat cooler than in Paris on any given day because Normany is a pennisula surrounded on three sides by the Atlantic ocean. That also means it tends to be windier and wetter. As for how much money you need that depends on what you mean. Total expenses including hotel and food? Please clarify."
darkvince7 :
"The weather in June in Paris is very hot. In Normandie it can be cloudy or windy but still hot (it's june). For the money I don't know, depends on what you want to do. I would say 500 euros. I don't know what is the MIJE center."

"My husband & I won a 7-day trip to Paris 18 years ago. We were college kids & married at the time. We loved it & it was our first trip out of the U.S. We went up to the top of the Eiffel Tower, saw many street artists, visited many old famous museums, ate at outdoor cafes. The locals were all very friendly & patient with us at our attempt to speak French (I had only 1 semester of college French). We ended up drawing pictures & laughing about it. What surprised me was that little dogs were allowed into the restaurants to be seated with their owners. We walked down the Champs Elyses & saw Notre Dame & climbed the many stairs to the top. We saw the Moulin Rouge & some other shows. We were young & had a lot of energy required to walk walk walk everywhere to see the famous sites & we did one bus side-excursion to Versailles (I highly recommend it!). I would love to go back one day. i hope you also get to visit!"
paris :
"I love Paris, but your question is too general. When this "some day" will come, ask me and I'll be glad to be helpful."
tsuxtra tsulu :
"Paris is one of the most beautiful places in the world.I've been there in summer,it was so great.I visited the Disneyland for 3 days and then I had 5 whole days to enjoy the life of Paris.you will never get bored,there are so many things to do .definitely go to Eiffel tower during night,it's just like a magic.A huge gold tower and is reflected in the seine's water.then we have notre dame situated on a small island in the river seine,the Paris opera and champ Elysee.Versailles were very impressive too,don't miss it,the whole french revolution was based there,you can see the glorious gardens of Marie Antoinette and the luxurious rooms of the king. but Paris has a lot more to offer you than these,you can walk to the narrow streets and enjoy the classic buildings or go to la defense,the biggest economical center in Europe and have a lot of choices for you shopping. Also you can get a taste of the night life of Paris,moulin rouge e.t.c. You have to go one day,it's really great,I had a great time and I'm definitely going there again in the future. It deserves 100% the name for the city of light. i wish you manage to go there sometime good luck btw I forgot to tell you about monparnase,a modern tower in the center of Paris where you can have a view of the city from the top."
Nicoco :
"I live there, and it's just beautiful. Fun? I don't know, you can always go to DisneyLand if you want that kind of fun, but Paris is g r e a t the food is excellent, no wonder why it's the #1 touristic destination in Europe"
Emssssssssss :

If you are going to Disneyland Paris, which airport in Paris should you fly in to Hugo - Try explaining that to my 4 year old daughter!!!!

Wyatt T :
"Charles de gaulle airport its about 30- 40 mins away from Disney Land which is not in the City but on the outskirts. There is a train that runs from the airport to Disney Land I think"
eurocash :
"you shouldn't, you need to go by the eurostar, they pull up right outside disneyland."
Graham I :
"Disneyland is not near any of the airports in Paris, but obviously is a very popular destination and transfers are widely available from Charles de Gaulle and Orly. The low cost airport Beauvais is much less convenient, but still can work - in that case you're best to hire a car or use public transport (shuttle bus to Paris Porte Maillot then RER train to Disneyland)."
Hugo Fitch :
"Of you were going to Paris, why would you willingly go to Eurodisney? It's a "cultural Chernobyl"! Paris itself is wonderful, don't waste your time there on Disney tripe!"
viporlandovillas :
"Charles de gaulle is probably the best one with good transfers to Disney. If you can get cheaper flights to Orly, that would be ok too. The train and transport system is very good, and I am sure trains would go very frequently. The ones into Paris itself run every 15 mins."

Rap superstar 50 Cent has denied kicking Paris Hilton offstage and reducing her to tears during a pre-Super Bowl concert - insisting he "ain't (sic) that heartless".
