Outstanding cultural and vanguard destination, Montpellier is more than ever a must!
Paris, the capital of France
This is it! You are nearing a visit to the one of the world’s greatest cities, Paris! The capital of France is also known as the City of Light. This enchanting city, at the crossroads of cultures, is the capital of fashion and home to world highlights such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and Avenue des Champs Elysées, to name but a few. In terms of architectural beauty, art history, events, gastronomy and sheer extravagance, Paris is a milestone ahead of any other city on earth.
Beyond the highlights of the city, Paris is the ideal place to discover the French art de vivre. Take a seat in a café and simply enjoy the scene in front of you: locals shopping fresh food from authentic markets, people taking their time for lunch which usually lasts more than an hour, women and men who are well groomed in a simple yet fashionable way… Simple things that make life much more enjoyable.
When it’s time to eat, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Indeed, Paris has a wealth of restaurants serving specialities from every corner of the world. And of course you don’t come to this amazing city without having a morning croissant, lunch in a neighbourhood bistro or dinner in a Michelin-starred restaurants if you wish to have a treat.
Paris has one of the world’s most extensive public transport systems. You can take a taxi if you are not much of an adventurer, but that would be a pity! Metro (subway or underground), buses and city bicycles are much more fun and are very easy to use, even for beginners. Go to any metro station and ask the RATP staff to help you out with the best ticket option. Don’t forget to ask for a free tourist map.
It takes more than a couple of days to discover Paris, but you can plan your visit according to our 3-day itinerary to see the best of the City of Light.
Reviews & ratings Montpellier - Paris
Once again we have used the excellent TGV train service in France. On this occasion from Montpellier St Roch to Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. The trip was fast, the carriage was of very good quality, and we were able to enjoy great views of the countryside as we went. Buying well in advance got us 1st class at a very good price. Highly recommended.
Travelled first class from montpellier to paris withe my wife. Great experience,715km in 3.5 hours including being able see the countryside
Recently I travelled from Montpellier to Paris on the TGV, purchasing a Class 1 Ticket. The seat was comfortable enough over the four hour journey. The 'dining' carriage was in another area up a few steps and positioned in the most appalling way - we all had to lean against the side wall to let people go by whilst I waited nearly 25 minutes to get to the counter and order an extremely dry and horrible sandwich that was not worth the wait nor the money - by th etime I got back to my seat and discovered this I couldn't be bothered having to go through it all again to return it. VERY dissapointing considering it could have been a nice experience if the food was better and there was a proper dining car. My travel through Italy on their trains was an altogether different and enjoyable experience. I think I will fly next time.
We took six train trips in September 2013, a mixture of first and second class tickets. The train journeys were very enjoyable. It was far less stressful than driving while following GPS directions and watching for road signs in French. The only negatives were the last minute posting of the platform number for the train and the confusing order of the carriages. Sometimes the carriage number signs on the carriages did not match the signs on the platform display. Both these contribute to a free-for-all rush carrying luggage up and down stairs.
I was impressed at the comfort and ease at using the train across France.
The TGV express from Montpellier to Paris offered speed, comfort and a magnificent view of the French countryside. Highly recommended for tourists as a major event on their itinerary.
Disappointing that the train was delayed by 45 minutes due to an issue at Nimes. The range of food available on the train was not as extensive as as provided on other train services (such as Barcelona to Montpellier).
Our return journey from Paris to Montepellier Monday 24 June and Saturday 29 June was fantastic. Coach was clean, there was plenty of leg room and the seating was spacious and comfortable. Toilets were clean and roomy. The trains ran on time. Only complaint. There could be more room for luggage. The coaches were fully booked and the passengers had plenty of luggage which soon filled up the baggage space in the coach. Made it rather difficult for the last passenger on to find space. Would certainly travel this way again.
We were disappointed with the times of the trains, as it meant we could not leave until the afternoon. The journey itself was good and was comfortable. We found the areas to store suitcases were very limited and due to travelling for 7 weeks we were using big suitcases.
I really enjoyed the trip! Such an amazing place.
A very pleasant journey. Only discomfort was handling luggage up tight stais to 1st class seats. Service could be improved by at-seat refreshment service -as in airplanes and Chinese high speed trains!
Using the website to make the booking was extremely difficult and confusing. Some timetable slots would disappear as you were trying to complete the booking and then reappear when you logged in again, resulting in us making a booking that we then wanted to change. Because we hadn't seen the option to receive tickets online, cancelling and claiming a refund for the ticket we didn't want was very difficult (and we didn't get full refund). Once we eventually found our way to the access point for the train at the station, the trip was very comfortable and relaxing.
Very convenient way to quickly get from Paris to le Midi. Could use public transport at both ends.
