RE: cost of taxi from auxerre tro paris
R you loco ? or should I just say r u FOU ?
From where in Paris ? from Roissy CDG ? if so, count AT LEAST, AT LEAST 200 Euros ! and I might be far from the right one. How many r u ? many luggages ? They sometimes charge extra for that.
There are train from Paris to Auxerre. Much cheaper.
oops. I answer the way round...but same the other way :)
RE: RE: cost of taxi from auxerre tro paris
Well, in a calmer mode, I will ask, "Do you mean 'Auxerre', the town 169 kilometers southeast of Paris?" If so, I can't imagine why you would want to take a taxi...but perhaps you meant something else...
Look at www.sncf-voyages.com for rail solutions...there appear to be 3 direct trains to Paris Bercy a day, and a number of solutions that involve one or maybe two changes...
Travel Tips for Auxerre
Wander the Old Town
The old town of Auxerre has much that is similar to Rouen: old churches and a cathedral, a 16C Horloge and bell-tower, many half-timbered houses. But atypically one also encounters quaint modern polychromed statuary of famous townfolk by Francois Brochet such as the poetess Marie Rouget (Marie Noel). Its ambience
Polychrome figures around the town
Adding character to the lovely place also are polychrome figures of notable personalities from around the town - particularly the ones made by local Auxerre artist Francois Brochet who has a display of works in the Auxerre Museum.
Notables such as the local writer Nicolas Restif de la Bretonne in 1806, where he began his professional career in the neighbourhood with the regions great printer Francois Fornier, whose statue sits together with his wife near the clock and bell tower.
And also one of France's famous 20 th century poetess Marie-Noel (1883-1967), who lived and worked in Auxerre. Her polychrome statue stands on the other side of the clock and bell tower outside the Town Hall/Hotel de Ville.
Place St Nicolas
This is where the passenger barges landing stage was located here on the river in front of this square. Passenger barges transported travellers and goods from Auxerre to Paris several times a week and interestingly apparently often included the young Napoleon Bonaparte who wouldve been travelling from Brienne to Paris and then later when he was older during his 'hundred day' attempt to regain power after his exile.
The large building with the statue of Saint Nicolas, the patron saint of catholic bargemen and their assistants, seems to have existed since the 17th century and the polychrome statue form the 18th century.
The Saint-Loup parish's brotherhood of Saint Nicolas begged from travellers here until the disbandment by the Revolution.
The fountain that you see here was built in 1832 by an italian artist for a square elsewhere but transferred here in 1909.
The large restaurant that you also here in the square, before the Revolution, was the passenger barges' warehouse and offices with stables on the ground level for the horses that hauled the riverboats. The stables were converted into the neighbourhoods wash house for a period of time during the 19th century.
surrounding wall and tower of the St Germain Abbey
The surrounding wall is apparently the only medieval fortification element that can still be seen above ground in Auxerre.
The current crenallated walls and tower were constructed in 1320. A windmill was built in the tower during the 15th century.
the covered passageway 'Passage Manifacier'
The walking tour guide calls this a fine building of shops - it is certainly has a rather attractive facade to it - a neo-Renaissance stone facade built by architect George Roux in 1869.
this is apparently one of Burgundy's rare covered passageways! (along with that of Autun)
