France, Paris Guide (B): Paris Travel Guide

Paris is huge, and therefore this blog is going to be slightly different from usual. I’m not going to pretend or allude that this post will even scratch the surface of one of the world’s greatest cities, all I can offer is my short experience there.

Coming from London, another one of these great big cities; I felt equipped to tackle a large amount of Paris in a short amount or time, and I think I did very well, but one could spend weeks walking the city and still not even come close. History, culture and experience run deeper than a weekend tourist can hope to see, so we went without expectation and just dived right in.

Here’s how we spent a weekend in Paris; we were there for the first time, to celebrate Mrs. R&R’s birthday.

We caught the Eurostar from London St Pancras to Paris Gare Du Nord, for £69 (€87) return each, and the train took just over two hours. This was actually our first Eurostar experience and we were impressed; the speed, comfort and convenience of our journey was a great way to start and end our weekend. If you are looking at a similar trip and have found cheap flights; weigh up airport transfers, check-in and departure times with the Eurostar service, as it might be much easier to take a train. ......
