Paris vacationers BEWARE! My husband and I were travelling back from Versailles to Paris on a train when suddenly 3 train officers came on board. At first we thought they were random ticket inspectors. Agent PA131 (very unfriendly and didn't speak a word of English)...More

Very easy to connect when booking the TGV as part of your flight ticket, at CDG just go downstairs and wait for your train

I could not recommend this train highly enough. No delays and only a 9 minute ride from Charles de Gaule Airport to Marne le Vallee (Disneyland Paris). Would really like to go on a longer trip one day to enjoy the experience fully.

We've been riding fast transfer decades in Europe. The TGV was a pioneer in genuine high speed and by now they've been at it a long time. The standard speed is 186 miles per hour, but that's been true for a long time. Some trains...More

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy
Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois
de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make
