Getting to this place

by Glen30

Hi there,

I was wondering if this place in paris still exist:
Petite Ceinture (an abandoned railway line in Paris) .
If it is, how do I get there with the METRO.

Cheers
Glen

This article in Wikipedia will help you

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemin_de_fer_de_Petite_Ceinture

It includes a map. The tracks ran more or less around the line of the old city walls and therefore you will find that many metro stations are within a short distance of the old line.

Most of the route is no longer used but a small section is now part of RER Line C as you will read.

Thank you for your reply...

Yes, it does exist still. I think that place was preserved as a historical heritage on that part of France. In fact, more and more people come to visit it. To give you more details, you can take a virtual tour of the place. Just click this link. http://www.v2asp.paris.fr/commun/v2asp/v2/environnement/baladepc16/index.html

I also read that some of the old stations are converted into bistros etc a very useful transformation!

This rail way was initially devoted to supply troups and shells to the bastions of the Paris defense. During the peace, it transported passengers.
There is a part of the remaining line open to the public between Gare d'Auteuil and La Muette.
You can see a portion of the rail way (but without access)near Cite Universitaire. A visit in the this area is pleasant because you can visit the Parc Montsouris which is upon the RER and which is very beautiful. Nearby there is also the Cite Floral : some streets in which the owners must adorn their house with flowers. Best time to visit : end of spring (now!)

Travel Tips for Paris

Hes only having a laugh !!!

by neilward

At Sacre- Couer theres normally an entertainer or 2 larking about,helping people cross the road,taking the mick out of them,a few people took it the wrong way,but most of us enjoyed sitting on the steps taking it all in. Best memory of Paris,.....................over looking the whole city from The Eiffel Tower and seeing for miles,and wandering round at night.

Paris Parks

by June.b

1) There is a nice garden park at the back / passing through the Arch Du Triomphe Du Carousel which is in front of the Louvre Museum.

2) Like already mentioned above - the Sacre Coeur. Wait for the sunset sitting on the stairs in front of the Sacre Coeur.

3) Parc des Buttes Chaumont - 61 acres of hilly land in the 19th arrondissement in the northeast of Paris. Two Métro stations are at the edge of the park: Buttes-Chaumont and Botzaris on Line 7b. Another station, Laumières, is a couple of blocks northeast of the park on Line 5.

4) Jardins et Palais du Luxembourg

5) A leafy haven beckons to lovers out for a stroll. The Square du Vert-Galant, perched on the western tip of Île de la Cité in the Seine, was named for the dashing 16th-century king of France, Henri IV, known as the lusty gallant. Today the garden is a popular spot for marriage proposals.

*** I found this one at (and many more suggested romantic parks) :

Enjoy your trip!

Montmartre

by Norali

This is a place I like, as many tourists would. :)

I didn't know at that time why but I know now.. because it was so picturesque. After days seeing the boulevards, Tour Eiffel, Arc de triomphe, how wouldn't you love this place ?

It's irresistible ! You can't escape it... Not only to "Sacré-Coeur" and the great view on Paris. That's classical.

Place du Tertre ... with the painters who would portray you in minutes... I discovered there too the "fusain technique"... Of course, my game was checking whether the painter was good or not.. checking whether the artwork resembled the model. I was a kid. Who wasn't ?

There are other things I like there. What I liked most were the fabrics shops in the area. I think it is Marché St-Pierre. There was an upslope street with haberdashers, fabric shops. I remembered I was once there with my Mum... We entered a café (in this little upslope street, I think) and had some good time eating crèpes (?).

Right now, writing to you, I would like to see this marché Saint-Pierre again... and riding funiculaire... oooh!

OK.. something to be done once in a while, not everyday. Like a pilgrimage, in fact... Same as for going to Brussels Grand-Place. One hour sitting there to admire the place in awe, looking at the beautiful buildings... Not to be done every day.

There a lots and lots of such signs. I found this pamphlet, written by the General De Gaulle, calling up all the French to join him in the batte for freedom, on a wall at the Place Louis Lépine.

So better bring some of these---------------------------->Paris is EXPENSIVE...

Lately the Euro is beating the bejaysus out of the yankee dollar,
making the simple pleasures of Paris much more costly than in the past.

In '01 it was 1.12 Euros/dollar or really ~7 francs to a buck (those were the days ...)

Now (Mar '08) $1.58 dollars = 1 Euro
Paris costs at least twice as much after 7 years
HUGE difference!

grrrr ... political rants are not allowed on vt
