Paris to Calais
We will be driving from Paris to Calais to catch the chunnel to England. I need to know how far and how long it will take to drive from Paris to Calais?
Re: Paris to Calais
To get time, distance, and even a route, use Michelin's route planner:
They suggest 285 km in 2 hours 52 minutes (you'll get an even more accurate answer if you give your starting address in Paris).
Re: Re: Paris to Calais
Via michelin tend to work out their timings assuming you will be travelling at the maximum speed all the time, If I remmber rightly it usually takes us nearer 4 hours to get to Paris from Calais.
Travel Tips for Calais
History of Calais
Calais came about because of its geographical position. Flints in primeval tombs found on the heights of the Calais show that this part of the continent was lived in since prehistoric times. The origin of the name Calais is obscure, the popular version is that Calais is called "Caletum" on a former map, and that the Calèteses came to help the Morins to oppose the Roman invasion, they established themselves here and founded a colony to which they gave their name. Over a number of years this changed to become Calais.
The genius of Auguste Rodin
The figures are of intense emotion, insecurity, fear and bravery all at the same time.
Rodin had meant this group of statues to be placed on the market square of Calais, so that people could walk between them. Placing them all at the same level as living people he wanted to express equality and humility. But the town council decided it should be on the traditional socket.
Calais...beyond the booze cruize.
Ok, so I've never had a particularly good impression of Calais. The first impressions I had of it were arriving at the port having crossed the channel on the ferry (or the hovercraft...remember those?) It wasn't until a few years later that I actually visited the town. I'ts really quite pretty.
