I already posted a question about taking a train to Paris from the Ramstein area, but I had another question to ask (for some reason, it won't let me post in the original post).
My husband and I are traveling to Germany and staying at Ramstein AFB in August for about a week. Any ideas of surrounding areas we could visit that wouldn't be very expensive?
Since Paris is about 4 hours away, we thought it would be worth the trip for a day. We really just want to do a day trip there, but I realize it will be a quick and rushed day. Would it be less expensive to take a bus or train to Paris? Do you have any of these websites you can list?
Staying overnight in Paris is an option, but we're not too sure since everything will have to be booked last minute. We're taking a military hop over to Ramstein and can't make reservations far in advance for hotel rooms since there is no guarantee we would get on the military flight that particular day (leaving from the US). It might be a week later.
Anyway, I'm not sure if we would even be able to get a hotel room in Paris 2 or 3 days in advance, especially during the summer. What do you think? Thanks!
