I am Dan with Travel Extras Travel Guides, and this time we are here to help you travel better in Paris.
Going up we have food, transportation, money, some tips from the locals, and more!
But first here is a bit more about the city!
Paris is one of my favorite places in the world. With its great boulevards, friendly people, and first class cuisine, this city really has it all!
One of the best bits of Paris is how close it is!
Paris is connected to London by Eurostar. Trains depart from St Pancras International in London, stop at Ebbsfleet International, and Ashford International in Kent en route. The trains start running at 5.40am and run every 60 – 90 minutes until 20.00pm.
You will need your passport and ticket ready to go through the airport style security and board the train.
However, you can two bags, and there are no weight restrictions to worry about! There is a coffee shop on board that sells hot food and drinks, and modern trains even have wifi. In total, the trip takes approximately two and a half hours.
The EuroStar arrives in Paris Gare Du Nord, from here you can take the metro or a taxi to your hotel. We will have more on the metro later!
Now if you're flying …
There are routes from most airports in the UK, and a flight will take between 1 – 2 hours, you will land at Charles De Gaulle in the northeast, or the smaller Paris Orly in the south.
To get to the city from the Charles De Gaulle airport, you can take the RER line B, the trains take about 35 minutes in Paris Gare Du Nord, where you can find connections with the metro and other means of public transport.
From Orly airport you can also connect to the B line of the RER line. Although you will need to take the Orly Val shuttle service from the airport to the Antony train station first.
However, both airports are served by Air France shuttle buses. There are two lines of Charles de Gaulle in the city, one of Paris Orly and a line connecting the two.
As with most cities, we recommend walking, as well as being respectful of the environment, it is a great way to get an idea of the city.
But enough to keep in mind that Paris is big. Like, very big. A walk from the Eiffel Tower to Notre Dame will take you about an hour. Fortunately, if you are tied up for time, there are plenty of good public transport connections.
The metro system is divided into Metro and RER lines. Tickets will work through both so you can treat it like a large underground network. In our experience, it served a purpose that was for us around town quickly. Not the cleanest.
The subway has 16 lines, each with a different color while the five RER lines are assigned the letters A, B, C, D and E. The RER and subway trains run daily from 6 am until midnight midnight.
As for the tickets a single will cost € 1.90, we have brought a book of 10 for € 14.50. Now there are weekly and monthly passes available, but in my opinion they are just a faff! You need a passport photo, and everything else, so just say a book of ten is the way to go!
