Can somebody please advise me on what would be the best way to get to and from certain attractions in Paris please?
I'm 20, ( turning 21 on the 23rd Jan in Paris! Sorry but I'm excited at the awesomeness :D ) travelling with my mother; who has arthritis in her hip so, please bare that in mind when giving advice. She is able to walk some distance, but after 2 - 3 hours of continous walking she cannot walk anymore.
We will be staying on Rue du Sommard at the Hotel Marignan. We would like to see, the Notre Dame, St Sulpice, The Eiffel Tower, and the Arc de Triomphe. I would love to walk down the Champs Elysees but would she make it? :)
I'm fine with walking, but like I said, I worry about causing my mother pain. Would it be more suitable to get the metro or do you think the walking distances would be reasonable?
Also, I may aswell ask, since I'm travelling on a budget, does anyone know of relatively cheap places for meals during the day? Cheap cafe or something? I've read somewhere it can cost like five euros for a can of coke!
Thanks a lot for all advice / info.
