Holt Paris Welcome Service
Paris will always be Paris! But what\'s new in Paris?

March 2003




The city of Paris has instigated a new plan to reduce pollution and traffic on the historic islands of the river Seine: tour coaches will no longer have access to the Ile de la Cité and Notre Dame Cathedral or the Ile St. Louis, which leaves more space for the pedestrians to enjoy the panorama. Is there a finer view than sunset on the buttresses of Notre Dame!
The Batobus riverboat service has been increased and additional stops have been added so that pedestrians can easily reach the islands from the faraway points of the city.



Roland Garros, the temple of hard court tennis, can now be visited throughout the year: the locker rooms, the famous red clay courts, ... After the visit you can enjoy the fine view from the panoramic restaurant while having your lunch, dinner or brunch. Soon after the annual French Championships of 2003, a museum dedicated to the history of this famous tournament will open.

Low cost airlines are becoming more frequent in France: Volare Web from Rome and Venice; Easy Jet from Liverpool, Luton, Newcastle, Nice and Geneva; Buzz from London; Ryanair from Milan, Stockholm, Dublin, Shannon and Glasgow.

Boat companies on the Seine become more numerous every year and 2003 will see a new deluxe \'individual\' dinner boat, the Don Juan, which will leave each evening from the Quai Henri IV.



April 2003 will see the opening of the renovated Grand Hotel on the Place de l\'Opéra: 480 deluxe rooms and suites and the unique Opera ballroom designed by Charles Garnier.

So there\'s plenty new in Paris!
