Travel tips to Paris for the Chopin Festival
Has anyone here ever visited Paris for the Chopin Festival or do you live in Paris and know about the Chopin Festival? I'm helping out a sweet old lady who adores Chopin. One of her dreams is to visit Paris for the Chopin Festival. Trouble is logistics. She is in her late 70s and will most likely be traveling by herself. I'd like to figure out where she can stay that is close to the festival venues. She would prefer it to be really close so she can take a nap in the afternoon after an early show with the possibility of seeing an evening show. Safety is therefore a huge concern. I'm sure a close hotel with a good concierge service might be helpful but, thinking out of the box, what about finding someone on CouchSurfing who she might be able to stay with or at least go to some of the performances with? Any ideas welcome. I can vouch that this woman is awesome.
