France/Plane trips


I don't know if I am using expedia right and other sites but does it really cost upwards to $1500 for a round trip ticket from Paris to Niagara Falls, NY? Sounds like a trip to Europe for most must be a once in a life time thing?

Hi James -

Unfortunately, prices to Europe have been skyrocketing since 2001, due to gas prices, security taxes, etc.

I did a quick search for you on orbitz. Have you tried flying out of Toronto? I know it's a an hour+ from Niagara Falls, NY, but I found a RT for $716. ( I used Sep 1 - Sep 10 as an example) I always try and fly out on Tues or Weds, as flights are usually cheaper on those days...

See the attached for the example I used.

Hope that helps.

If I can help at all, please let me know.

I travel to Paris each year and I'm well acquainted with restaurants, shops, hotels and the general layout of the arrondissements. I frequently create itineraries for my friends, including what to pack, how to travel, etc. I also frequent many out of the way places that are not in a lot of tour books, but that should NOT be missed.


I visit France each March and stay for two weeks, living in an apartment. I frequent most non-tourist restaurants, bars and socialize with a lot of locals. I have very honest opinions...because I love this city and wish to dispell the misinformation that is out there regarding Paris and its citizens
