Travel from Marais District, Paris to Eiffell

by Lucyfong1

Hi There, How far and how long would it take for me to walk from Marais District, Paris to the Eiffel Tower? Can I catch a direct train, if so, what train to catch and from what station? thanks Lucy

Hi,
About an hour, but there are many distractions between the two places that could increase this amount of time.
The Paris Metro has a variety of ways to travel between the two places depending upon which Marais Metro station you start at. Metro maps are posted in every station.
Have a good trip,
dromo

Walking wise it is probably around 5-6 kilometers. You can get pedestrian walking instructions using the following website:
http://www.viamichelin.co.uk/tpl/hme/MaHomePage.htm or mappy.com, I use the older version. If you walk across the river to say Gare d' Austerlitz, you can take the RER C line to Champ de Mars Tour Eiffel. While technically a suburban train, within the city center it functions as an additional metro. There are tons of ways to to ET using metro (if you don't mind making a change or two) and/or bus or walking. I prefer a long, easy walk. Karl

Hi Lucy. We're in our 60s and have walked from Marais to the Eiffel Tower without any problem. I must admit we have never done it without being distracted so I can't tell you how long it takes walking directly.

We can't give you names of stations for the Metro without knowing where you are starting. The Marais is quite large and has many Metro stations. Unless you an get across the Seine to the RER C, you will have to plan at least one change of trains but that is easy to do. Pick up a free Metro map when you buy your ticket so you know where to change. There is a Metro map above the doors inside the trains so you know exactly where you are. The stations are clearly marked as you enter them.

Even though I have taken the RER trains (e.g. Paris to Versaille, Paris to CDG) I could never quite understand the system of automatic (clicket-clack or electronic) scheduling boards announcing the incoming / departing trains . I would always have to ask someone "Is this the right train to ....". Whereas the metro / subway is simple and straight forward and operates like most other city subway systems. But like one other replyer said, it may require a change of subway route depending on where you are getting on. That might serve you well though in the sense of getting accustomed to the metro system for your trips to other areas of the city.

Travel Tips for Paris

The stairs in front of the...

by Rahel

The stairs in front of the Sacré Coeur is the most wonderful place I know in Paris (I'm sure I don't know them all!!!). When the sun is shining there are often people from all over the world sitting around, some play guitar and sing. I love the atmosphere there.

Basilica Sacre Coeur

by matcrazy1

The Sacré-Coeur Catholic basilica was built at the end of the 19th century at the top of the Montmartre hill in Paris. Its famous white pastry like architecture is dominating the city.
.
Great place to visit, admire the views and meet the people from all over the world.

The Latin Quarter

by kris-t

The Latin Quarter takes up most of the 5th arrondissement, and part of the 6th.

The Latin Quarter has been a haven for budget travelers, international students, and artists for quite a long time.
It’s not as cheap as it used to be, because now it’s also quite trendy. But you will still find lots of great and inexpensive places to eat as well as plenty of bars and night clubs for socializing after hours.

What to do and see in the Latin Quarter:

The Pantheon in Paris
The Sorbonne
Markets of Rue Mouffetard
Musee du Moyen Age (formerly known as the Musee de Cluny)
Musee de la Prefecture de la Police
Church of St-Severin
Church of St-Julien-le-Pauvre
Church of St-Etienne-du-Mont
Shakespeare & Co. Bookshop The lively and social atmosphere which dominates this part of Paris to this day.

Latin Quarter Metro & RER Stations – Cluny/La Sorbonne, Maubert/Mutualite, Cardinal Lemoine, Jussieu, Place Monge, Censier/Daubenton, St. Michel, Luxembourg

Latin Quarter Bus Lines – 27, 87, 86, 24, 21, 47, 87, 84

French chic

by kris-t

Truly, only french women know how to use a small black dress, and indeed - only french women are able to get on a bike wearing one... And yes, I mean it!

I agree: "French women really do have that certain something that you always hear about. They are not necessarily wearing something amazing; it’s that they innately know how to put the entire "ensemble" together ".

Versailles

by Blombossie

I loved this palace, but unfortunately we did not see much of the gardens or any of the smaller palaces on the grounds. That is the one drawback if you are with a tour group, time is always limited and you only see certain things that they deem most important.
