A duck around Paris!!

4 roues 1 parapluie

Thanks to the Independent’s Travel Section I came across a really neat little website and a novel way of touring Paris. offers private guided tours of the City in a refurbished Citroen 2CV! The company’s name translates as “4 wheels under 1 umbrella” a reference to the fabled 2CV (or “deudeuche”, also known as “the duck” , rather appropriate for our website) with its canvas, retractable roof. With a variety of itineraries, most lasting about 90 minutes, you get an open-topped trip with commentary from a local Parisian, in an inconic French voiture.
It looks like fun, but beware that the 2CV was not built for comfort, and its idiosyncratic suspension system will prove interesting over cobbled streets and at any speed around a bend! And of course, whilst open-topped may be great in Spring and Summer, late Autumn and winter may be rather less enjoyable. as the author of the article in the Independent discovered.
A similar scheme operates in Lyon (69 Rhône, Rhône-Alpes)
