Travel inspiration in Paris and Strasbourg
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.
Strasbourg, the capital of Christmas
Strasbourg is the largest city of the Alsace region in France. Its old town centre known as the Grand Ile is nowadays a listed and protected UNESCO world heritage site where one can see its timber-framed houses, colourful window shutters and multi-storey steeply angled gables. Strasbourg is world known for its Christmas market, the biggest in Europe and one of the most imposing in the world. Inside the city itself, with its 12 Christmas markets spots, Strasbourg invites you to a pleasing stroll. Strasbourg is also home to the European Parliament, Council of Europe and the European Court of Human Rights.
Reviews & ratings Paris - Strasbourg

"My Nice-Paris trip"Prasad Janardan s. 22/04/2014
It was really good...
"loved it.....board early "Annette c. 21/04/2014
We loved travelling from Paris to Avignon on the TGV. Smooth comfortable and roomy. The platform the train leaves from is announced 20 mins before departure....try to board as soon as possible especially if you have luggage as space is limited to store the luggage. My husband had to lift our large heavy cases over head high to fit them in a space.
"Why travel any other way?!"Gina s. 20/04/2014
After an extremely intense couple of weeks in Germany, I was so relieved to be able to sit back and truly relax on this quiet, efficient, comfortable train service to Paris with excellent seating, good food, polite and professional service and perfect timing. Europeans may take this type of travel for granted, but for a visitor it is just brilliant.
"Journey was comfortable"Md. Nazmul Hossain c. 19/04/2014
Travel from Zurich to Paris was very comfortable. Food in the train was also very good. Altogether it was a nice experience.
"Excllent"Md. Nazmul Hossain c. 18/04/2014
I have travelled from Paris to Interlaken Ost, it was the best travel of my life,the comfort of seats, dinning in the train compartment is a very good experience, and the behavior of staff is very polite and very cooperative. I would like to travel again and again.
"From London to Paris"Jonathan g. 17/04/2014
The train ride from London St Pancras to Paris Gare du Nord was a smooth ride. The train took off on time and even arrived slightly ahead of time in Paris that was expected. The seats were comfortable and staff were very friendly. On my way, back from Paris, the staff showed unlimited concern to an elderly passenger who was sitting around me. Very impressed.
"Amsterdam to Paris train"Noor Soffalina s. 16/04/2014
The train arrived on time. Staffs at the train station checked if everybody have the right tickets, and usher them to the correct area on the platform based on your carriage number. So you dont have to run all the way back if your seat is at the last carriage. However, they should have advise us earlier what to so with big luggage. We only know afterwards that we should take another door which have the bag storage racks. We got our seat and the train starts departing Amsterdam CS. After a while, announcement was made that the cafe was open. Since we didnt have breakfast, we went there to buy some food. We had to wait quite a while, the staff wasnt even ready. upon returning to our seats, we were surprise to find people in our seats. After a while, we figured out that we had the correct seat number but wrong carriage number. That was super confusing! There is no where in the train to know which carriage number it is. And every carriage has the same seat number?? It would be beneficial to have those clearly written. As the train make stops along the way to take passengers, so once you are in your seat, do not think it's definitely yours, you might get it wrong like us.
"Fast and efficient!"Emily y. 13/04/2014
We took the train from Paris to Reims for champagne tours and it was quiet, comfortable, fast and fun! I recommend!
"A great train trip"Willa s. 12/04/2014
As on previous CDG trips, this one was great- arrival and departure right on time, comfortable seating and the wonderful convenience of leaving from the airport., Our only problem was in booking - I didn't take note ot the site I booked (and paid ) on so when an email of confirmation did not arrive, I was unable to track our tickets and had to re-book and re-pay.
"Zurich to Paris by TGV"Vaughan h. 12/04/2014
Nice fast trip in comfortable seating. Good range of food in the dining car, helpful staff.
"Paris long weekend"Stewart g. 10/04/2014
Easy to book, fast and reliable the TVG was exactly what you would expect from a premier rail service. The return journey on the ICE was good but not equal to the TGV experience. I would and have happily recommended the service to friends.
"Paris to London"Leslie a. 10/04/2014
Fast, courteous service. Will use again
"Train from Rennes to CDG "Barbara m. 13/12/2013
I booked in advance and managed to obtain return first class tickets at a good price. The journeys were fast, smooth, warm, quiet and comfortable. I look forward to many more train journeys in the future.
"Trip from Paris to London"Xuan Tian s. 11/12/2013
Booking a Eurostar train from Paris Gare Du Nord to London St Pancras was easy and fast. However, we were unable to choose our seats and we got a back facing seat. It was quite uncomfortable and we didn't like siting back facing. It would be good if Rail Europe allow choosing of seats on the website.
