Cycling in Bordeaux

What is the cycling like inside the town of Bordeaux? I know the region is bike-friendly, but if I rent a flat in town, can I easily cycle around the city and reach the outlying areas? Is there a bike path along the Garonne? Any suggestions on bike rentals or biking destinations would be appreciated as well.

Help make our trip to Europe amazing, Carcassonne edition

Our family will be spending a few days in Carcassonne, France in June. We're traveling with kids, so our plan is for a mostly low-key trip filled with lazily exploring the city. But we're also looking for other unique or special experiences we could do as a family that would really make our trip special. [more inside]

Things to do with long Paris layover besides explore Paris?

I'm arriving at CDG from Seattle around 8 am tomorrow morning and have a subsequent flight out of Orly around 5 pm. I've never been to Paris before. Ordinarily, I'd head into the city with this long of a layover, but I'll be back in Paris later next week and for sappy romantic reasons would like that to be my first time actually in the city. Where should I go for my long layover? Possibly relevant: American, non-francophone, willing to shell out for cabs, and into books/art/music/food/just about everything.

Eating out in Marseille

Your recommendations, please, for eating out in Marseille. Breakfast, lunch, dinner. Panisses at l'Estaque to moderately fine dining. Any kind of cuisine—doesn't have to be bouillabaisse. A bit of an explanation for what's good about the place you're recommending would be great. [more inside]
