Is it better to pre book a taxi to take us from Gare du Nord to Gare de est or is there a taxi rank outside the station. Any ideas how much we should expect to pay or would it be better to walk and if so how long would it take on a working day at about 10 in the morning. If walking can anyone suggest the quickest route. THanks all

The two stations are about half a mile apart, so unless it's raining I would walk. Shouldn't take more than 10 minutes, even allowing for crossing the busy roads.

Google Maps reminded me of the names of the roads, a while since I have had to do that one.

Come out of the Gare du Nord and turn left (to the east) then

take Rue de Dunkerque for about 180 metres
2. Turn right onto Rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis
350 m
3. Turn left onto Rue du 8 Mai 1945
180 m
4. which brings you to the front of the Gare de L'Est after about 160 metres.

There are plenty of taxis at the Gare du Nord if the weather's bad.

I hope that helps.

If you're arriving on a train and have luggage and need to get over to the other station for another train, I don't see any sin in taking a taxi, even if it's not raining. Of course, when I was 19 and broke, I would walk (I also traveled light). Now that I am older and with the OSU (Official Spousal Unit), the taxi is the way to go. It's your choice.

All over Europe, you will find taxi ranks at train stations, no need to "pre-book" one at all.

Thanks very much sounds cheaper than trying to hire a taxi. Had a quote to prebook 62 euros one way. What a cheek!

thanks pedmar we will probably walk as we will need to stretch our legs going all the way to interlaken by train unless its pouring with rain.

Travel Tips for Paris

Sightsee on Your Own!

by jclymer

All sightseeing in Paris can be done on your own. There is a Hop-on/Hop-off Bus that takes you to all the "must see" sites.

Never take a bus tour. Your time is not your own, and you don't always hear what the guide is saying. If a site has an "self audio" tour like the Louvre or Palace of Versailles, pay for it.

Take the elevator to the top of the Eiffel Tower for the view above Paris, and use the Metro (subway system) for getting around below Paris, when not using the Hop-on/Hop-off Bus! Visit the Latin Quarter for its narrow cobblestone streets, colorful quaint old-world buildings, and delicious little greek cafes. You'll feel like you stepped back in time.

Toilets at Altitude 95

by ChicBaby

We were a bit disappointed by the toilets at Altitude 95. They were very dark, the paint color and lighting was dim, dirty and it smelled like urine. One of the toilets in the women’s room could not flush and the floor and counter by the sink was wet. I suppose no one was attending to the bathroom that day, but I was hoping for at least a clean floor or dry counter to change a diaper on my son.

Bargains in Paris

by jumpingnorman

The "soldes" or sale is what you have to look for...also important terms for the savvy shopper to know include stock (overstock), degriffes (when designer labels are cut out), and depot-vente (resale)...

Which arrondisments to go to for bargains? At the Right bank in 8e, 16e and 17 e is where you'll find the resales. And street stores are also nice to window-shop at or really get a bargain --- at 6e is the Rue St-Placide (Metro: Sevres-Babylone) for shoes, Rue Paradis at 10e (Metro: Poissonniere) for porcelain, and Rue d"Alesia (14e, for overstocks)

But then again, don't spend too much time shopping because you'll miss the other beautiful places to go to in Paris!


by Hamster_Huey

One of the most stricking differences for overseas tourists, especially Anglo-Saxons is the conception and importance of privacy.

Paris is a very densly populated city. People are always surrounded by other people, and it is not rare in a restaurant or bar to have to share your table with a total stranger.

The Parisians will completly ignore you. This is often misunterpreted as being snob or snotty. For a Parisian, it is a mark of respect and politness. Privacy is very important, because there is so little of it...

On the other hand, if someone talks to you in a restaurant or bar, it means that he/she really means it!

Packing List

by Aragina

Depends on how you are travelling, but suitcases or rucksacks are fine, but they dont have a lot of porters anymore and you will be expected to carry your own stuff. Airports have luggage carriers though :-) Paris can vary in temprature but in Summer tops and shorts are fine in winter good warm clothing. BUT!! no matter what time of year, keep you eye on the weather forcasts and get an Umbrella, :-) it can appear even on a nice sunny day. Just use good common sense and you can't go far wrong. You can buy everything you need in Paris, but make sure you have enough prescriprion drugs with you to last, if you do not belong to the EU as Medical costs are high and a lot of meds can't be bought over the counter, Paris can deal with any of your Photographic needs it may be a little more expensive than the US and Canada though.
