I am planning my first trip to Paris in September and I'm interested in renting an apartment from the agency Vacation in Paris with offices in New Jersey. If anyone has used their service, please let me know your experiences with this agency. The apartment is located in the 8th district, near the Arc de Triomphe and it overlooks the Cathedrale St. Alexandre-Nevsky (A Russian Orthodox church.) Is it a nice neighbourhood? Is the area close to tourist attractions by bus or metro? My interests are history and art, not shopping or gourmet dinning. Thanks for your help.
