While exploring Paris last weekend, just as we caught our first site of the Sacre Coeur, a group of 2CVs drove past. It was a great opportunity to photograph this iconic symbol of France in front of one of Paris’ most famous landmarks.

My first thoughts were that it was an owner’s club excursion or possibly a race and when I got home I googled the name on the car, 4 Roues sous 1 Parapluie. It turns out that this company owns a large fleet of 2CVs and they offer a full range of guided tours and events for individuals and companies. What a great idea! I have always loved 2CVs. Prices start from  10€ per person (for a 15 minute tour). A tour would make a wonderful surprise present for a special occasion. I’ll have to drop a few very large hints next time I’m in Paris (whenever that might be).

Will the 2CV become as a familiar sight in Paris as gondolas are in Venice? I hope so.

Travel Planning Resources


Travel clothes for women

Check out my guide to all my favourite travel clothes for women.

Book your hotel

Agoda is my preferred hotel search engine. I also use Airbnb ($31 discount) for booking rooms/apartments.

Rent a car

Discover Car Hire is a great site for comparing car prices to find the best deal. They search both local and international rental companies.

Book an experience

When I’m travelling solo, especially to a new city, I use Viator and Get Your Guide to book tours and excursions, in particular, food walking tours or to visit somewhere tricky to get to by public transport.

Protect yourself and your trip

Don’t forget travel insurance! Protect yourself from possible injury, theft, and many other unexpected mishaps while abroad. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 140 countries.
