Can someone give me infor on Cacasonne? How to get there from Paris. We only have 3.5 days for touring,should we save our time for Paris? We'll be there Nov. 1-4.
I assume you mean Carcasonne - it's 400 miles / 600 km south of Paris. You would spend a good part of a day getting there and the same getting back. Driving time is about 8 hours each way.
With only 3-1/2 days - stick to Paris. You'll barely scratch the surface there.
Hi. I'd save the time for Paris. Carcassonne is very far south. The quickest train leaves from Gare Montparnasse and takes 5 hours. It would take longer to drive. The other trains all take more than 5 hours. That's a bit too long for a day trip.
There is so much to do and see in Paris; spend your time there and save Carcassonne for a future trip. It takes a full day to see all of Carcassonne and you would be sorry to have to rush back to catch your return train to Paris.

Carcassonne is fascinating but much too far for a day visit from Paris. You will need an overnight stay.
If you only have 3.5 days altogether then you clearly need them all for Paris itself. But if by 'touring' you mean that these days are 'extra' then you might consider Carcassonne.
You can find train times, details and fares in French (easy to use) here:
Do not choose the English language version, it will take you to Raileurope which is a ticketing agency. It does not list all departures and charges commission on fares. The journey takes 6.5+ hours and costs around 96 euro one-way.
On top of that 1st November is a bank holiday here, and as it's a Monday, that means long weekend = loads of people on the roads and perhaps fewer trains. So much to see and do in Paris and the region, not worth wasting almost two days in travelling.
Please excuse my misspelling.
Thank you to all that replied, I will take your suggestions.
Enjoy your trip.
Travel Tips for Paris
This is gooood...!
You will find them all around town. These small creperies they seem to be able to squeezn everywhere. And they are popular for a reason. These pancakes are a delicious and fast meal, whether you're going for lunch or just a sweet snack. Mostly you can choose from a wide selection of combinations, and make them add exstra stuff if you're willing to pay for it. You'll watch them prepare your pancake right in front of you so this is fresh-made, and the best thing is that many of these creperies are open late-night, so you'll be able to grab a snack on your way home from the local pub... :) My favorite combinations are pretty classic; Ham & cheese and the sweet nutella & banana
This is what happen in Louvre ..if
Sorry sir , i cant resist butto take a picture of ya !
Well going to Louvre is about enjoying the work of art , but if you dont plan properly ..this will probably happen to you - sleeping inside Louvre or you will leave with the Stendhal syndrome - a term used for confused or rather bewildered tourist because of too much artistic stuff occupying their brain .
So do like keny does and you will leave Louvre with a smile on your face !
