    Icon5 Is there anything to see in Paris in Feb?

    I might be in Paris for a few days next Febuary.
    Has anybody been there recently in winter and found something to to see & do that they would recomend?
    Has the Citroen museum / display been opened to the public yet?
    We may be transitting from Channel Is. to St.Malo and then Paris, on our way home - any advice?

    I don't know if you like football like i do, but i'd always love to see a PSG (Paris St Germain) game, or any football game in the french ligue for that matter.

    We've got heaps of friends over their & i know the nightclubs are meant to be really amazing.

    Have fun anyway i'm sure you'll love it.

    BTW keep you mouth shut when you are looking at them french birds

    I just got back 2 weeks ago from Italy and spent 3 days in Paris on the way home. Hard work eh? On the Champs Elysees Citreon, Peugeot and Renault all have fantastic showrooms with their latest on display. As well as a few concept cars that I guess aern't making the rounds in the car shows. The Renault one especially is fantastic, its a massive multi media showroom with laser lights, computers etc. and a restaurant! The Peugeot one is pretty small and had only 4 cars; an old but immaculate 1930's grand tourer, a modern concept version of the same car, a 307cc and a great looking 2 door touring station wagon, brilliant! Pop down the road and you'll also see the Mercedes one with the AMG/Mclaren with a price tag of about $1 million. I don't know about the Citreon museum.

    Other than that there's not much except the amazing food, great wine, great art, fantastic architecture, gorgeous women........

    My brother's just been around europe, including a week in Paris. I'm picking him up from the airport this afternoon, so I'll ask him what was worth seeing. But it is Paris, I very much doubt you'll have any trouble sorting out a fantastically packed three days!

    The hotel I'm staying in is directly opposite the Louvre

    No doubt I'll go and check all the art and stuff out. I want to see their metric things. Apparently they have a rock that is excatly 1kg, a pole that is exactly 1m long etc. Napoleon was great for some things
