Travel inspiration in Paris and Brussels
Paris, the capital of France
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. 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.
Brussels, the capital of Europe and Belgium
Brussels, the capital city of Belgium, is home to several European Union institutions and many international organisations. Being a trendy city, Brussels is ideal for weekend getaways and holidays. Its famous and delicious chocolates as well as its great variety of beers are the delight of every visitor.
The city is also known for its famous attractions, the star being the Manneken Pis. With its numerous institutions, museums, galleries, beautiful parks, fascinating walks, trendy restaurants and bars, Brussels justifies its name as the capital of Europe.
Reviews & ratings Paris - Brussels
"Very enjoyable"Robert Douglas k.
Great journey from Paris through the alps to Italy. Quite a long time in a train but worth it for the views.
"Surprised"Robert Douglas k. 24/04/2014
The Italian train system is really good, possibly even better than the French system!
"Too Easy"Vicki h. 22/11/2013
After a pleasant breakfast at the delightful St. Pancras station, we checked in with our pre purchased tickets in Australia with ease and efficiency, and boarded the punctual Eurostar for our comfortable and scenic trip from London to Brussels. As it was a 9am journey of only a 2 1/2 hour duration, we did not need to use the dining car.
"Relaxed and Entertaining"Rosalie p. 20/11/2013
Travelling by myself from Australia, and not speaking anything other than English, I couldn't have been happier with my experience on the fast train from Amsterdam to Paris. I chose the first class option, and believe it was a very good choice. The presentation of the carriage, the professionalism of all the stewards, the quality of food, the range of wines and the attention to requirements by the carriage host could not be faulted. I loved the experience. Thank you so much :-)
"Convenient and fast Eurostar "Ling y. 20/11/2013
The trip from London to Paris via Eurostar from St Pancras International to Gare du Nord station on 21st October 2013 was convenient and fast. Food served on board was good, service was great and we were all welcome on board with friendly faces by the chief and other stewards. I must say the journey 2 over hours was not long as I expected. It was pretty relaxing and fast. Printing online the tickets enable us to move in quickly to get our immigration cleared and finding our train cabin was alright. I will suggest to first-timers travelling from London to Paris to use the Eurostar and get it on promo sale prices to avoid the peak hours and traffic from using local airplanes.
"First Timers."David w. 19/11/2013
Why on earth would you travel from Paris to London any other way?? Leave from the centre of town and arrive in the centre of town. No transfers. Service and refreshments did not disappoint us.
"Excellent"Judith m. 19/11/2013
We traveled from Amsterdam to Paris first class, which is a 4 hour trip. Thalys made the journey feel short as it was so comfortable. The staff were friendly and always around. There wasn't a lot of baggage storage space so we put our suitcases above us. There were a lot of older people who had difficulty with the baggage storage.
"Great train journey"Judith m. 19/11/2013
This train was clean, comfortable,fast and on time exactly what we paided for.The only complaint was the lack storage for luggage items at the end each carriage. St Pancras terminal is so much cleaner and better laid out Paris Nord.
"French TGV Trains"Andris v. 18/11/2013
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.
"Great way to travel"Robert j. 14/11/2013
We recently travelled Europe by train and found it so easy and convenient to do it this way rather than any other way. Our trip from Paris to Amsterdam was great but was disappointed that after Italy there was no wifi to use on the trains. Would definitely travel by train again.
"Don’t miss the train!"Raymond h. 11/11/2013
With more than ample time to make our train, our local taxi driver got lost on the way to the station (AIX EN PROV), so we missed the train. We had to purchase a new ticket at a huge increase over our original 1st Class ticket. The TGV was 47 minutes late which caused us to miss out flight from CDG to DXB and connection to SYD. Not a great way to conclude a wonderful two-week holiday. The Rail Europe service to purchase our origin tickets in Australia was very good.
"Train Travel Paris to Munich "Barry c. 07/11/2013
I would recommend this mode of transport from Paris to Munich. Excellent trains, reliable clean and fast. As the train station is near the centre of the city transport to hotels is quick and easy.
"Trip from Avignon to Paris "Catherine t. 07/11/2013
I was extremely pleased to complete this trip by TGV in a comfortable seat on a train that ran to schedule. On the day of travel I had to change my itinerary from starting my trip from Marseille to Avignon but was still permitted by the ticket office to do this easily, using the same ticket. Booking my ticket on-line also saved me from having to have my ticket validated by machine before commencing my journey. I was very happy with this result and would not hesitate to book with your company for my next european train trips. Thankyou very much
"Paris to Avignon"Janelle w. 07/11/2013
Travel bt TGV was quick, convenient and comfortable. Access to Wi-Fi would make it perfect!
"Great trip, excellent value."Janelle w. 06/11/2013
The seats were comfortable, the journey was fast. An excellent way to get from London to Paris - no hassle of getting to the airport early etc.
