Travel inspiration in Paris and Toulouse
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 - Toulouse
Travel by TVG was fantastic. Fast and beautiful country side. 1st Class is the best!
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.
Everything went well on this trip. I bought an e ticket which meant I didn't need to get another ticket or validate it. The train was on time, clean and comfortable. Enough luggage space for my suitcase.
There needs to be someone to tell you which carriage to get on. There were 2 trains travelling as one until Bordeaux where it split and went separate ways. Well we were on the wrong half of the train. There were no signs or conductors anywhere to set you in the right direction. Apart from that stress the train ride was very pleasant
Oh how I wish my country had such efficient transport. A slight problem with the printed tickets was sorted out with a smile. Friendly staff, relaxing journey
The trip was only a couple of hours. Safe, comfortable, clean and on time. Great value for money. Beats driving hands down.
We made three train reservations for travel in France recently. From Paris to Brive la Gaillarde, from Toulouse to Marseille, and from Marseille to Paris. Easy to book with RailEurope. We had two sets of tickets mailed and downloaded the other. In the case of the downloaded tickets, some of the printing was iprinted over, making the coach number unreadable. This could have been an inconvenience on the platform! So we emailed RailEurope who helpfully gave us the information needed before we left Australia. Many thanks...smooth travels.
We were very happy with our train travel around France.
Paris to Toulouse ...Love watching the countryside go by .. Best way to travel. Cup of tea, a good book ... Just bliss! Getting to the station from the Metro is difficult because with luggage, all the steps between platforms is exhausting ... More lifts please. Compulsory seat allocation is a good thing. Could we have more travel information in English please. Our train was not the cleanest.
Very good service with respect to time table and very clean train
Train station was hard to find we went to the wrong part first then have to go around the back and thankfully some locals helped us otherwise we might still be looking to the a4 size sing to get to the platforms! Train. Was late and food on the train was very expensive.
The TGV is far faster than I imagined. Great seats and amenities, and the people in the bistro cart are fabulously efficient. I moved seats to sit in the direction of travel. The canal du midi is remarkable. I managed to get work done and relax. Better than airports by far. My preferred way to travel now.
