On April 2019 we decided to make a road trip with my best friend through some cities in France, our first stop was Bourdeaux on April 2nd, there we arrived at 6:00 p.m., as we were going on a tour, the bus left us at the Mercure Bordeaux Château Chartrons hotel which is one of the most iconic 4-stars hotel and favorably located in downtown Bordeaux, it has a spectacular Victorian façade and comfortable rooms. That same night we went out to visit the main attractions, such as Port Autonome de Bordeaux, the incredible Palais de la Bourse, the beautiful Porte Cailhau, the magnificent Port de Pierre of course and last but not least, the Port de Bourgogne, all these historical attractions are free to the public. I must add, that being a tourist in Bourdeaux at night was a totally different experience. After walking around all these monuments, we went to have a drink at the Ragazzi Da Peppone pizzeria.
On April 4rd we left for Blois, the capital of the Val de Loire. Since we arrived to this city, we wanted to visit it because its infrastructure made us fall in love. After all, its 'Renaissance’ type and the history around the different kings of France also made us jump off the bus and walk. In this tour, we found magnificent artworks, one of them is the iconic Gioconda of Leonardo da Vinci in the Denis Papin staircase by the Denis Papin street.
Finally, we arrived at Coupvray, in the east of Paris, to make one of our dreams come true: to visit Eurodisney or Disneyland Paris, as since we can remember one of our dreams was to visit thisiconic park. On April 6th we woke up very early and took the subway to the Paris - Lyon station where we had to look for the RER A Gare de Marne- Vallée Chessy, this subway dropped us at 11:30 a.m there, this is the fastest and most effective way to reach the wonderful park, I strongly recommend you to buy your tickets for Disney in advance because depending on the season, tickets are very limited. Once inside, all is great, you feel entering into one of your childhood movies and fun-filled moments wherever you see.
PS: If you are staying in Paris it is suggested to take the return subway at 7:30 p.m. to make the subway-transfer on time.
