Three airports connect Paris to many European and International countries, as well as many other charming French cities. Travel to Paris Gare du Nord station, staying at our Campanile Paris 10 - Gare du Nord Hotel for maximum convenience by the Eurostar from London , Brussels and other French cities, such as Lille and Calais . On a budget ? Travel to and from many destinations by Eurolines and Megabus coaches - book early for cheap deals. While travelling around Paris use any number of public transport systems. The city has a great and extensive Metro and RER lines or SNCF and Thalys mainline routes across Europe, Paris and France. Bus routes cover the city, and velos, bicycles, are available to rent. In suburban areas, tramlines also run.
Considered to be the food capital of Europe, an exciting array of fine dining to market food awaits you. Many Michelin star restaurants sit comfortably on the city's streets; try, L'Astrance or Guy Savoy, for cuisine at its highest. Boulangeries and patisseries constitute a large part of French high steet culture, full of deliciously just baked baguettes and cakes to make your mouth water - Le Marias area, Metro Saint Paul, is especially recommended. And if you like early mornings, wander round many Parisian markets on weekdays or weekends - such as Bastille's Metro Bastille, on a Sunday morning.
Events throughout the year, there's something to do no matter when you visit Paris. A traditional holiday, Bastille Day, 14 July, celebrates all things French with military parades and parties around the city. And many literary, musical and performing arts festivals fill the months, such as, Lefestival Chorus mid March, which is free (gratuit) like many Parisian cultural celebrations. A country and city with maybe more bank and public holidays than most, it's important when planning your trip to check when these are with tourist information as you'll find most things closed on these days: shops and tourist attractions included.
Paris actually has another cemetry of sorts underground. Over six million civilians' remains line the walls of the Catacombs of Paris - once a mine, now a tribute to 12th century transported Parisian burials, poorly treated and abandoned - go and visit for yourself !
