Travel inspiration in Paris and Luxembourg
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 Paris - Luxembourg
Excellent Journey although the Train was late arriving
Trip was very comfortable, on time and good value god money! I was very impressed!
The train was very clean and tidy and the staff member who checked my ticket was polite. However, it was very difficult to board the train with a large suitcase, given I had to lift it up several steps, and I was not offered assistance when slowly lugging it onto the train. Also, the rack/holder for stowing luggage was situated above the seats, which was not convenient for me; I had a very large heavy suitcase and would not have been able to lift it up alone without a man nearby kindly offering me assistance. The airconditioning was far too high, making the train very cold. The train drivers/announcers also only spoke French for most of the trip until the end; luckily I understood some of what they were saying but I had hoped for an English translation. I also felt the wifi ought to be complimentary - given that I already paid quite a bit for the journey, it seems fair to be granted even just 30 minutes free use of the wifi. Luckily the train journey to Luxembourg wasn't too long.
We travelled from Luxembourg to Paris Est on the TGV. We booked the tickets on line from Australia on the day that future bookings were available. We were advised that the best price would be obtained if you book well ahead. This was our experience with trains in USA and we thought it would apply in Europe. We discovered that we could have booked the day before for less money, obtained a seniors discount (not apparent on line), and saved the extra costs of a booking fee and delivery fee for the tickets. The other issue was the seat allocation. Having booked so early we expected good seats. Not so! The allocated seats were the ones without the window. We have learned a bit and adopted the local approach and sat where we wanted hoping to not be asked to move by the person holding that seat allocation. It worked. Tip for others- book in country and save the booking fee and delivery fee.
