Train from Paris to Amboise

by doughall82

Hi,

I'm having a short break in Paris and Amboise this Summer. I'm planning on travelling by train from Paris to Amboise. Does anyone know how much more expensive it is to buy tickets on the day of departure compared to ordering online? I could order flexible one-way tickets for £54 for two people or £19 for non-flexible.

Thanks.

You need to check train times and fares on the French railway website here:

http://www.voyages-sncf.com/billet-train/horaires

In French, but easy to work out.

One-way tickets for Monday are from 28.20 euro, but for a Monday in May they are cheaper.

I think you may have problems buying from the site as you are a UK citizen, but it is worth trying because two tickets in May are definitely less than £54....I saw fares around 40 euro (for 2) or less.

So it is be a matter of checking prices for the departure you want and perhaps trying to buy your advance tickets from voyages-sncf.

I don't know if you know the answer to this, Pedmar, but wil they take cards from abroad? Or is one automatically whisked to the Raileurope version (and fares)?

Thanks.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for the OP ....and hope we find out the answer on this thread.

I haven't booked French trains from here, only German ones via bahn.de, so would love to know.

Travel Tips for Paris

Wandering the streets

by Robertvp

Just wandering the streets on a Sunday morning or visiting the Markets.
Stopping at a cafe for a coffee and Croque Monsieur soaking up the ambiance. The thing I miss most about Paris are the wonderful patisseries that can be found there.

At a lot of places behind...

by yellowstar

At a lot of places behind walls, you suddenly find a little parc for the people to recover from the metropolitan noise. There they have a little place of quietness and calmness.
The most well known probably is Parc Monceau (17eme arrondissement) although this picture is made in the 7th arrondissement.

Why I am always telling you to look up!!

by shrimp56

I guess I look "up" more than the average person, because I HAVE to in order to see you! But there are two reasons I recommend that the rest of you, who are not vertically challenged", look up.
.
1. You don't have to look at all the tourists around you.
2. There's interesting stuff "up there".
.
These two shots were taken on a visit to Ste Chapelle. The top one was taken while I was waiting in line -- it sure beat what I was going to see if I looked around me -- lots of people in line -- this way I have a private view of a beautiful site.
.
The bottom photo might be entitled "look beyond" -- we had just exited Ste Chapelle and were in the courtyard of the Palais du Justice when I looked beyond the gold tipped fence and saw this beautiful dome with French flag flying. If I had just been paying attention to exiting the site I would have missed it. Of course it didn't hurt that it was a beautiful day!

Manifestations

by Nemorino

If you cycle around Paris for a few days you are bound to come across a demonstration of some sort. This one in Avenue Victoria was in front of the Public Hospital Administration, to protest the closing of a nursing school.

Unlike some demonstrations in the suburbs which can turn very nasty, this one was totally peaceful and even joyful, but to prove they were serious about their protest they stayed here for over four hours chanting and singing.

Second photo: This girl has written the slogan on the back of her shirt: No to the closing of Necker.

Packing List

by debankh

Back-pack or rolling suitcase It gets hot in the summer so shorts are recommended. It can also get pretty cold in winter- if you go in February you want to bring a heavy jacket, gloves and hat.

I should note that if you are American and do not want to be instantly noticed as an American by the way you are dressed to leave the sweats, jeans (especially ripped ones) and T-shirts home. Europeans overall dress very nice- even on a very casual basis. Although some of the younger Parisians may sport T-shirts and jeans, they definately are of a European look. Basically if you go wearing sporty 'Nike' style clothes, Seattle-grunge style clothes or Levi-and-T-shirt style clothes, you will just scream 'American'!

Bring good walking shoes that are well-broken in!!! The sights in Paris are spread out so you will do a lot of walking as well as having to take the metro between points. There are also countless places where you get to pay to climb endless stairs to get up to lovely views! ;-) Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triumph, Sacre Cour, etc... No special items needed- just bring what you would for travel anywhere in the U.S. that you would bring. I definately recommend sunscreen if you are traveling June through August. A camera, a journal and a good map or guide book (i.e. 'Let's Go Paris!')
