When I first started to plan for this WYSU trip to France, I knew I wanted to bring my daughter, who would turn 11 just before we left. As I began to research the cost of all the amazing museums and tours available, especially in Paris, I was surprised to learn that for children under age 18, there is no charge at all to get into most museums. NONE! And for adults the price is minimal, especially when considering the quality and quantity of what you can see with a ticket in hand. So here is a schedule of what Lucia and I did and how much it cost:

If you want to know exactly how to do something in a country where you do not speak the language, ask your guide. Of course, not everyone has a guide, but all of us traveling in the south of France right now with WYSU and Go Ahead Tours do have one . Here are some tips from the infamous JJ:

1. No one eats dinner in France before 7:30 or 8 pm. Restaurants are empty at 5 or 6. You did not pick a bad place, they are just not expecting you yet!
