Travel inspiration in Paris and Dijon
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.
The capital of Burgundy is easy to reach thanks to daily TGV connections with Paris (1h35) and other main cities including Lyon (1h45), Strasbourg (2h), Basel (1h25) and Zürich (2h25). Dijon, which is listed as a City of Art and History since 2008, brims with fascinating history, vineyards and fabulous food!
Reviews & ratings Paris - Dijon
It was Christmas Eve and our train was late leaving so we missed our connection but easily got onto the next train.
We were travelling from Interlaken in Switzerland to Dijon and from Basel to Dijon was via TGV with compulsory reservation. The reservation from Basel to Dijon was so high I tried catching a regional train to the next stop Mulhouse and booking the reservation from there to Dijon. This worked but required an extra connection...very inconvient. The TGV was also very late and old seats and we were in 1st Class.
Our TGV trips to Djon and back from Chalon to Paris were excellent.
We recently purchased a 1st Class Saver France-Italy Pass hoping for true flexibility and freedom of travel at a reasonable price. Unfortunately, many of our trips were on TGV and Freccia trains, which require reservations and involved extra costs added to the price of the pass. SNCF don’t seem to issue reservations on line for pass holders, so going through a booking agency adds further costs. In our case, reservations and booking fees added almost 50% to the cost of our pass and made it more expensive than buying point to point tickets. As the reservation process, is the same as buying a point to point ticket (which includes a reservation in the price), it is just as easy to buy the ticket online. The Rail Europe site was easy to navigate, we were notified when the reservations went in the post and they all arrived promptly. Having to make reservations took away the true flexibility that Eurail passes offered in the past. We ended up being tied to a particular train and time for the majority of our trip. But, the first class travel was fantastic (2nd was often crowded and noisy) and we always knew we would have a seat on those longer journeys. Regional train routes is where the pass really shines; fill in the date and jump on the train. Next time, we will book point to point tickets when a reservation is required and a pass for all the journeys on regional trains. My advice is don’t rush to buy passes or tickets, plan your route and take into consideration those jour
Loved the trip, quick, quiet and comfortable. Station signs and platform easy to work out. Its acually worth the little extra to go first class. Loved it.
Passengers were very pushy to get on. A kindly old gentleman let me sit on his walker seat, but we were packed in like sardines. Very uncomfortable trip.
out trip from Caen to Paris as well as Paris to Dijon was a great experience.
Always take care with baggage as too much is a real hassle. Not sufficient space to store suitcases so end up in isles.
A great way to see France. I travelled alone from CDG to Dijon where I connected with a canal boat tour. The train journey there and back from Paris was a bonus. Highly recommend it and 2nd class is fine. Pre book from home for the best priced fare, you can print the ticket or it can be mailed to you if time permits.
It was disappointing that all our advance bookings gave us backward facing seats.
Impressed with the service. However, there needs to be more provision for luggage storage.
Duplex carriage had no room for luggage downstairs
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.
this is the most fantastic way to travel around France, the only hassle is that most people who are travelling have luggage and there is just not enough space allocated for suitcases. This applies particularly to upstairs carriages where it is impossible to 'lug' a large suitcase up the narrow staircase.
We booked the trip over the Internet but only just made it onto the train. We tried to collect our tickets at the automatic machine but our documentation only had the booking reference number which was not the correct number. Thankfully the staff at the ticket office were able to retrieve our tickets and we just made the train in time. Otherwise everything else was great.
