On 11/11/10, we left Italy and flew to Paris. We had no problems at the airport. We have business class seats, and went through the security line for business/first class. There was not one person in line. I kept thinking we would have to go through another security line, but no, that was it. We got to the airport too early, so we walked around a little then went the lounge for a while. Our flight was very nice. It's funny I've read a lot of people who really dislike Air France. We've never had anything but very positive experiences with them.
We arrived in Paris, and had hired a car service through A.L.C.S. to pick us up. We got our luggage, gave them a quick call, and our driver was there in less than 10 minutes. How easy that was. We got to our apartment, and the owner showed us around. On first inspection, what you really notice is how small it is. I'll write more about it later, but we've really enjoyed staying here. It has everything we could want, and for how small it is, has tons of storage. And a very large shower. And it's something like 65 euro/night.
We walked around the neighborhood a little, and were very hungry for dinner. At most of the brasseries, trattories, bars, etc., not one person was eating at 7:30pm. We spotted an Indian restaurant where someone was there eating, so we decided to go there for our first night in Paris. Not Parisian food, but it was actually very good. Then it was back to the apartment for a good night's sleep.
