Hotel Vintimille - Rue de...

by twiga

Hotel Vintimille - Rue de Vintimille just between place de Clichi and Opera. ** though not bad. The room was somewhat little.
Nice personnel (at least at the time I was there)
Slight breakfast included in the price

Nope, that's not the TGV

by mariev about Le Train Bleu

Inaugurated in april 1901, le Train Bleu (called after the Paris-Vintimille train), has been classified as an historical monument in 1972 : the ceiling is indeed spectacular : the 41 frescos retrace the journey made by the trains of the PLM railway network at the beginning of the 20th century - Many people in the wold have catched a glimpse of it (in a scene in Luc Besson's film "Nikita").

You come to the Train Bleu to see the deco, to talk, to meet people (i had my first VT meeting there, Thanks Beatchick) and even to eat.
It's a place where the time is somewhat slower (like the service) - a bit of the past in a TGV (bullet train station).

The food (traditional, slighly south-west french cooking) is perfectly decent (no double somersault of joy but no disapointment - maybe a bit too expensive for what is in the- well presented - plate) is a bit secondary.

PS : The restaurant is obviously geared toward tourists (no wonder in a railway station) and is aware of USAmerican tourists' idiosyncracies : i had to ask for a french menu : the one i got first was in english (with german and spanish subtitles) and it was the first time in my life were i got butter on the table beside the bread ( served on a plate with a knife) in a french restaurant.

Restaurant : Open everyday of the year 11:30am-3pm & 7-11pm

Bar (le Big-Ben : a tribute to the British people who, on their way to the french riviera at the beginning of the 20th century used to have some alcoholic 'refuel') open Monday-Friday 7:30am-11pm What i tried :
Saucisson chaud pistach?, Cabillaud plancha and baba au rhum (huge) : not extraordinary but good (and since the company was great....)
All in all an enjoyable,unhurried, moment.

cote d'azur train

by S2000Lee

we will be staying in madelieu la napoule (cannes marina) for 2 weeks in june. can anyone tell me about the train that runs along coast, i have heard into italy?
we will be driving (from uk) but would like to spend some days touring using public transport so we can eat lunch and drink lots of wine! im trying to find out if train is part of usual rail service, or especially for tourists? also, any info on restaurants in mandelieu area would be welcome for the evenings we dont want to drive, just to walk to (again so we can have wine!)

thank you

Re: cote d'azur train

by Hamster_Huey

The train line running along the coast is used both by high speed trains (TGV) and local subburban trains (TER).

You can hop on a Paris-Vintimille train (going to Vintimiila in Italy) in Cannes or Nice.

for trains going to italy, check www.voyage-sncf.com
for TER schedule, check http://www.ter-sncf.com/

You could walk down to the Rague harbour, and have diner in the scenic restaurant.

Here is a list of restaurants in Mandelieu http://www.ot-mandelieu.fr/otmandanew/4services/hebergement/restaurants/restaut2004.pdf

Take the train (20 mn ride) and have diner in the old city in Cannes. It is a bit of a tourist trap area, but it is pretty anyway :)

Check my Theoule pages to have an idea of what is waiting for you in this beautiful region.

Have fun!

Re: cote d'azur train

by Waoife

I agree - the SNCF have an English version of their site (www.sncf.com - you may be able to access from the websites above too) so you don't have to practice your French to check out the details - unless you want to ;-)

Happy travels,
Aoife

If you take the train to Theoule, I recommend le Magellan on the beach.
Further up, a3-5 kilometers from the train station up the scenic road: l'air du temps. Breathtaking view on the Cannes bay.

How do i take the train from Paris to Nice, Nice to Florence, Florence to Rome? Is the TGV the same as the Eurorail?

Re: train travel

by matfzapofqq

You should take a train at 'Gare de Lyon' in Paris heading to Vintimille or Nice then change for italian train. I am not able to say more.

Re: Re: train travel

by jamesfmunro

The TGV is the Train a Grande Vitesse - France's high speed train. Eurorail is probably a rail pass. Eurostar is a train used in the Channel Tunnel crossing and in Italy. Probably some other places too.

Re: Re: train travel

by rogan

From the Gare de Lyon in Paris take the High Speed Train (TGV) to Nice.

From Nice you can take the stopping train that to Genova or Milan.

From there there is a change to Rome.

Eurorail is a cheap travel ticket system that must be arranged before you leave your home country. Check if the SNCF has an office in your capital city, or wherever you live.You can buy cheap travel for any length of time and for a variety of countries.

For the most detailed info about European train travel take a look at www.seat61.com - that guy knows everything.

Have fun !

Travel Tips for Paris

BRASSERIES.

by breughel

In most countries a brasserie = brewery is a place supposed to brew beer. Not in France where a brasserie is a place where one can drink beer, wine, coffee, sodas all the day but also eat breakfast, lunch or dinner.
The difference with a restaurant lies in the fact that the food served in a brasserie is generally (with exceptions) rather simple, less elaborate. Most served are salads, omelettes, toasts and steak frites. Nothing complicated to prepare especially at noon time when the brasseries are often full because employees have lunch there as well as people doing their shopping in the centre.

Do not assimilate the food of a brasserie to that of a Fast Food; there is an ocean of difference. A cultural difference and a dietetic difference. The problem of overweight is linked here to the "Burger" type food and the Parisiennes and Parisiens are, from what I observed, keen on staying slim especially in the areas with luxury shops like around La Madeleine or Place Vendome
You will see in a brasserie that most women eat salad. There are usually a dozen different ones on the menu. But even salad is not cheap in Paris, often around 12 € for a "Salade Caesar" type.
To be slim is a necessity when eating or drinking in a brasserie because the seats and the tables are so terribly close to each other.
Inside is non smoking; outside on the terrace is for smokers.

Looking backwards...

by sourbugger

France is firmly in Euroland, the new currency accepted right across Europe (except for the UK and Switzerland).

Some French however hanker back for the days when the French Franc was the only currency in town. Hence a few relics remain, as in the picture. It will however only accept the new-fangled Euro's in it's tills.

This shop (if you really want to buy some cheaply produced tat) is just north of the Gare St Lazare on Rue Amsterdam

The Water Lillies in Monet's garden

by bpacker

The inspiration for some of Claude Monet's finest pieces of art comes from the lillies in his beautiful garden at Giverny. So keen was I to see this garden, that I went on a cycling trip to Giverny , 13 hours after I landed in France from Singapore! This day trip cost me about 50 euros but it was worth every cent as it quelled my need for exercise and the French countryside is as beautiful as it is reputed to be.

If you're wondering whether I cycled into the pond due to my jetlag, click here to see my Giverny page. It's the #1 Giverny page for the time being and it's been described by my readers as a visual gem.

Details for the cycling tour agent are found at the weblink below.
