    Could be a bit difficult if you mean in the city centre . Have seen vans parked down by the Seine but they have blocked quite a few off. Also seen some parked in bays behind the Eiffel Tower area. You might be lucky if your van s not too big.

    We stay at the Bois de Bologne camp site. Is one of the nearest to town but you still need to take the metro into the city.

    Been planning this afternoon - ferry booked for Wednesday! - so a few days in the aires alongthe coast. Then going to head for Cambrai (past Arras) on Saturday found an aire at Bertry & one at Catillon-sur-Sambre both very near the cobbled sections of the race (about 5 kms away) Going to be a great weekend!
