Whilst we all love our vacation time, we all assume that places that thrive on tourist business will be open during the holidays.
That’s not always the case in France where many attractions are closed today because it’s Labour Day (May 1st). Although many people will be eating out today, a number of restaurants choose this time of year to close thus losing considerable business of course.
Even when they’re not on holiday many restaurants stick to the 12 to 2pm lunchtime and we know of one local touristy village which gets tour buses every day from 9am to 7pm yet the restaurant only serves food from 12 to 1.30pm.Copyright © 2004-2014 by Foreign Perspectives. All rights reserved.
