My daughter and I will be in Paris before,during and after the completion of the race and I was wondering if anyone else had been in Paris during this time, and what to expect. We are also traveling to Chartres one day and I wanted to check out Chateau de Maisson. Has anyone visited the Chateau? Is it worth the time to take a trip over from Chartres? We will have a full day for Chartres so time is not of the essence. One other question, I would like to take a lunch or dinner cruise on the Seine. Anyone done this? Suggestions are appreciated.
