I’m signed up as a solo for the Berlin, Prague, and Vienna tour for September 2024. Now I get to have fun planning out the details.
I have points on Westjet, so it’s the only airline I can fly on. At this point they only fly into Paris or London. Because Paris is my favourite place in Europe (to date), I thought I’d spend 2 nights there and then either fly or take the train to Berlin the day before the tour. Neither the flight or the train goes direct, so the choice is a 7 hour train trip or a possible 3 hour flight.
The tour is jam packed, so the time in Paris will be completely unscheduled. Likely walking around discovering neighbourhoods and parks. I hope to find a not too expensive hotel in the Latin Quarter.
On my return, I’ll fly to Paris from Vienna, and stay at a hotel at the airport to catch my flight out the next day.
I’m intentionally not booking flights to and from Paris on the same day I land and leave. I don’t want to worry over connections.
Any comments around plane vs train, and hotels in the Latin Quarter greatly appreciated. Thanks so much for your expertise.
