    hi there i am going to provins in August and having looked at all the good info posted here my only concern is which pass to get. i believe you can get a combined ticket for the attractions ie tithe barn etc and also for the shows. however as mentioned before i believe that there may be some clashes does anyone know more about this and also travelling from paris PROVINS is in Zone 5 i think it it worth buying a 1-5 zone ticket for trips like this from paris ?
    We would like to use the train alot

    if you cross the road from the train station , walk right for 50 yard and then turn left you will find an english speaking cafe
    the chap who owns it is v ery helpful
    alternatively as you come out of the station bear right until you get to the level crossing, cross over it and turn right and you end up behind the station
    carry on down this road about a quarter of a mile and you come across mcdonalds and a car hire place if you need one called rent a car tel:0164602988 who are english speaking
    carry on about another quarter of a mile and you come across a massve shoppingmall and supermarkeet
    in the same area is lidl and numeros restaurants
    a reliable taxi service is 0620257284 who speak some english
    if you require quicker access to the mall and supermarket
    then get off the train at the stop before provins

    Provins station
    2 more images

    Provins is an easy and enjoyable day trip from Paris via Gare de L'est. The journey takes about an hour and 20 minutes. In October of 2007 we paid just under E 20 each for a round trip. There are multiple train times so scheduling is easy. Just remember in Provins to check return times. You wouldn't want to miss the last train back. Or would you?

    If you're coming to Provins by train, read below! I arrived without a map and felt so lost. There was no map at the station and the people did not understand me.

    From the station, cross the street and walk up Rue H Moreau. At the end of it, turn left and go up Rue du Four des Raines. After walking a bit, turn left onto Rue des Marais. Turn on the 3rd right to Rue Victor Garnier. At the end of it, you will see Place du General Leclerc.

    Exit the plaza on your left by Rue du Val. This will lead you onto the main road of the town.

    Provins, Jouy gate

    However cars are admitted inside the ramparts, the Medieval town was not at all busy. There are several gates in the ramparts. The main gate is getting refurbished actually and closed for cars.
