Paris central station and hotels around there

by Janemei

Hi all

Can someone please confirm if Lyon is the central station in Paris? Is it the same as Gare de Lyon? If so, can you recommend a budget hotel to stay within close proximity of this station?

Gare de Lyon is an important station is Paris. Paris has several stations so there is no CENTRAL station. Depending on where you are arriving from you may encounter various other stations.
Lyon on its own is one of the great cities of France, 400 miles southeast of Paris.

There are lots of stations in central Paris. The Gare de Lyon is a bit farther out than some. Notre Dame-St. Michele or Chatelet would probably be the most central.

If you want to stay in the central part of Paris, you should consider the Latin Quarter. It's busy, safe and pretty inexpensive. There are lots of restaurants and hotels and you can easily walk to the Louvre, the d'Orsay, the Cluny, Notre Dame, Ste. Chapelle and the Ile de St. Louis. There are several Metro stations you can use depending on where you stay in the Latin Quarter.

If you need a hotel, try and use their search engine. You can search by district or price and it covers all ranges. We always book in Paris on and have never had a problem.

If you can handle 60 euros for a single, try Hotel de la Sorbonne in the Latin Quarter. I have a review on my Paris page under "tips" if you want contact information. also has a button on the right side of your screen for hostels. I've noticed several inexpensive hotels listed there too. Also check Guyon's VT home page. He's a Frenchman who has excellent Paris suggestions.

Good Luck!

Arc de Triomphe
metro:Charles de Gaulle-Etoile
RER:Charles de Gaulle-Etoile
Commissioned in 1806 by Napoleon, shortly after his victory at Austerlitz, it was not finished until 1836. There are four huge relief sculptures at the bases of the four pillars. These commemorate The Triumph of 1810 (Cortot); Resistance , and Peace (both by Etex); and The Departure of the Volunteers, more commonly known by the name La Marseillaise (Rude).
La Marseillaise by François Rude; One of four reliefs on the pillars of the Arch. The day the Battle of Verdun started in 1916, the sword carried by the figure representing the Republic broke off. The relief was immediately hidden to conceal the accident and avoid any undesired associations or interpretations as a bad omen.

Engraved around the top of the Arch are the names of major victories won during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic periods. The names of less important victories, as well as those of 558 generals, are to found on the inside walls. Generals whose names are underlined died in action.

Beneath the Arch is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and eternal flame commemorating the dead of the two world wars.
Here every Armistice Day (11 November) the President of the Republic lays a wreath. On 14 July - the French National Day (refered to as Bastille Day everywhere except in France) - a military parade down the Champs Elysées begins here. For important occasions of state, and national holidays, a huge French tricolor is unfurled and hung from the vaulted ceiling inside of the Arch.
Inside the Arch there is a small museum documenting its history and construction (price included in the FF31 to the top of the Arch).
From the roof of the Arch there are spectacular views of Paris. Looking eastwards, down the Champs Elysées, toward the Louvre, there is the Place de la Concorde,, the Tuileries Gardens, and the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel. In the opposite direction - westwards - in the distance is its larger and newer cousin, La Grande Arche de la Défense.

French people can seem to be...

by NadiaMarie

French people can seem to be cold at first time... but if you just make the effort to say Bonjour/ Merci/ Au revoir... they'll smile straight; especially if you are British or American.. it sounds so pretty ;) (personnal point of view)... At first, French don't like much American for their behavior of superiority... but if you avoid speaking loudly and eating everywhere you'll be better welcomed. Also, in the streets, it can be difficult to find someone who speaks English properly... I've met several travellers lost in the metro and unable to find anyone to help them... try to ask students rather than people in their 40ies/50ies they have forgotten their English at school a few years back in time :)

Train trip to Vernon - check out the Siene

by Roadquill

On the way back from Giverny we stopped at a park in Vernon on the Siene River. There was the remnant of an old mill, complete with one remaining house, along with ducks and geese. It would be a great place to picnic, as one couple was doing, enjoying lunch and a bottle of wine.
