Mercedes has designed the Mercedes Marco Polo in a very classy and sophisticated way, so it has become a real eye-catcher. Its very noble design in black and white, with our particular roadsurfer color foil, makes sure it is even more eye-catching. Furthermore, this model has way more to offer such as its trailer hitch, the four wheel drive, and 190 hp. All information about the premium camper can be found here:
The city highway called “le périph” by Parisians, leads around the center of the town with up to five lanes to enter. The Périph is deviating from other highways, which is information that might be necessary. It can avoid traffic jams, because you will bypass the busy roads along the banks of the river. Keep your eyes open for the signs in the city “BP extérieur”, which means the outward direction of the city highway and which runs clockwise around Paris. Do not get confused though, because “BP intérieur” on the other hand means the inner direction of the city highway (I.e. counterclockwise).
Very good to know, that you are able to plan your individual route with your own camper van without being dependent on anything or anyone. Omit the city map and discover a few locations on your own. Maybe you will find your perfect spots that way. Parking in this busy city? We agree, that might be difficult, but there are many parking spaces out on the street. Remember the rules though, because you cannot park anywhere that has a red line on the road. Also, you have to pay for parking so keep your coins close to feed the parking meter and get a suitable ticket. Another pointer might be to follow the signs to one of many car parks which are accessible with vehicles up to two meters in height. Hence, you are well able to enter any car park. Rent your VW California Beach and feel the freedom in this big city.
What is a huge, well-known part of a city tour in Paris? Everyone has probably seen the finish line of the “Tour de France” at some point in their life. Whether while cycling yourself or watching the event back in the past with your grandparents in front of a TV. Get out of your camper van, hop on your bicycle and feel the breeze while you finish the tour and arrive at the finish line. Drive along the picturesque banks of the Seine, past Les Tuileries and the Louvre, look out on the left for Place de la Concorde and the Obelisque. Drive along Champs-Elysées the most famous boulevard in Paris and continue to Place Charles de Gaulle with its triumphal arch. By the way, the roundabout called “Place de l’Étoile” is on the right before you turn to the left, due to the 12 star-shaped streets leading into it. Small anecdote, which is often told in Paris by driving students on their way: Car insurances have created a special rule for accidents due to the rush hour and the situation at this intersection: ever accident is considered as the fault of all the involved drivers.
Discovering Paris with children gives you a completely different impression of the vibrant metropolis. From any small square in the district to large parks, there are playgrounds everywhere. So you can put in a wonderful break at almost every point of your city tour to enjoy some play time. With a sachet choquettes (small windbags sprinkled with sugar) from the next boulangerie to refuel for the next destination, anyone will be happy. Rent miniature sailboats in the large basin of the Jardin du Luxembourg and push them over the sparkling water with a pole. Connect culture with fun? From the Jardin d’Acclimatation with the new Musée Fondation Louis Vuitton for the grown ups and a lot of carousels for the little campers, you can combine both. You still have some energy after all the adventures? Hop on to the Jardin de Tuileries at the Louvre, and jump on the big trampolines. End the exciting day with a picnic on the Champ de Mars, where the Eiffel Tower glistens every five hours from sundown.
The campervan was your companion and home for many nights and hours. At some point of your journey, the end will grow closer. Finish your vacation as it started in the city of lights, which Paris is also called. Enjoy the evening sun and the sunset at Montmartre on the steps of Sacre Coeur and remember the many beautiful days spent of your vacation while looking across the roof tops of the city. You will suddenly feel the rush to rent a camper van again, because it has been the best idea. We are looking forward to you coming back and hearing your stories.
