(Paris UT+2)

Your arrival by train

Paris can be reached by train in a matter of hours from elsewhere in France and all major European cities. All 7 stations bring you right into the heart of the city. Centrally located and each with specific destinations, they offer smooth connections with the public transport network (metro, RER, bus).
Make sure you don’t forget to validate your rail tickets by punching them in the orange machines located in the concourse and in front of the platforms.
Certain stations provide left-luggage facilities: Gare du Nord, Gare de l’Est, Gare de Lyon, Gare d’Austerlitz and Gare Montparnasse. Luggage can be left for a maximum of 72 hrs and the cost, the same in all stations, ranges from €3 to just over €7 per day, depending on the size of the locker. They are available from 6.30am to 10.45pm. Warning: this service may be closed at any time for security reasons.
