Travel inspiration in Florence and Paris
Florence, the capital of Tuscany region, Italy
Florence (Firenze in Italian) is nestled within the Tuscan region of northern Italy and surrounded by rolling vineyards and olive groves. Visitors are just as beguiled by the beauty of the city itself as they are by the paintings and sculptures found in its many museums. The city was home to many well-known artists, writers, explorers, and scientists. Amongst its most famous residents were Leonardo da Vinci, Donatello, Raphael, Michelangelo and Galileo. Famous for its rich history and considered as the birthplace of Renaissance the city is nowadays a popular tourist destination and is ranked as a UNESCO World heritage site. Many of Florence’s churches are works of art in themselves. The most famous of the city’s churches is the Santa Maria del Fiore, known simply as the Duomo.
Paris, the capital of France
One of the world’s greatest cities, Paris! The capital of France is also known as the City of Light. This enchanting city, at the crossroads of cultures, is the capital of fashion and home to world highlights such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and Avenue des Champs Elysées, to name but a few. In terms of architectural beauty, art history, events, gastronomy and sheer extravagance, Paris is a milestone ahead of any other city on earth. Paris has one of the world’s most extensive public transport systems. You can take a taxi if you are not much of an adventurer, but that would be a pity! Metro (subway or underground), buses and city bicycles are much more fun and are very easy to use, even for beginners.

"Excellent trip"Eileen c. 26/11/2013
Very relaxing journey between Florence and Rome. The staff on the train were very helpful and polite and the train was on time at every point. Station facilities were excellent and booking the trip online was very straightforward.
"Comfortable train ride"Nurhuda Binte j. 25/11/2013
It was the first time taking Thalys from Amsterdam to Paris and it was a nice experience. It was comfortable. Since we booked our tickets in advanced, it was value for money and we were allocated to seats that we wanted.
"confusing"Lynda Marie w. 22/11/2013
T he train we got on at Lille was two trains joined together which made it very confusing when trying to find the coach we were in nearly missed the train trying to find the right coach. and when we arrived in Paris the signs for the underground trains are really poor we expected better from such a large city. Arriving back at St Pancras in London the difference is startling even if you are a visitor and don,t know much of the language you would find where you are going much easier.
"Delay appallingly handled"Teong l. 20/11/2013
The train to Paris Gare Lyon was to leave Figueres Vilafant (where I boarded) at 5:20 PM. it left the station punctually enough. However, when we got to the next station (Perpignan), we were told that strong winds had caused disruptions to power lines and, as a result, the track from Perpignan to the next station was not prperly set. The solution was for everyone to alight from the train at Perpignan and take a bus (provided) to the next station to continue the journey. To my understanding, the track at the next station had been amiss since 3-ish PM (2 hours before the start of our journey). Despite that, Rail Europe had arranged only one bus on standby at Perpignan to transfer the passengers. Needless to say, one bus was barely sufficient. So the bulk of the passengers waited at the Perpignan station for just over 2 hours for the next train to arrive hoping that in the meantime the track at Perpignan would be set right. All along, it didn't seem anyone was really in charge - there were sometimes conflicting indications from the rail employees. It really was quite an appalling state of affairs. All in all, the total journey was delayed for between 2 and 3 hours and arrived in Paris way past 2 AM (not including taxi queueing time!). If you take Europe Rail, cut yourself some slack as delays (for all kinds of reasons) happen more often than you'd expect and, frustratingly, quite a tolerated scenario, especially in France. The delay was unfortunate as everything else was good.
"Excellent Service"Tausif k. 18/11/2013
Me and my family travelled to on Train from paris to London and Rome to Venice. Bought the tickets on line from Pakistan, every thing was very convenient and excellent service.
"value foe money"Tausif k. 14/11/2013
All ok i am happpy trip rail train . milan paris. value for money
"An experience"Tausif k. 13/11/2013
The staff was great. The linens were fresh. The supplies were convenient. My suggestion would include an updated train car. Toilets were smelly. Berth was well designed but had seen better days. We paid for a first class berth, but felt more like a very used hotel room. Air conditioning was nonexistent. It was a good way to travel from Pome to Paris while viewing some of the countryside, but just had to keep focused on that rather than the accommodations.
"Great train trip"Kasia w. 13/11/2013
Easy, cheap and comfortable! This train from Bologna and Florence is extremely convenient and I would recommend it to anyone!
"lille to paris"Paul l. 12/11/2013

"Comfortable train travel"Elton m. 11/11/2013

"Zurich to Paris by train"Elton m. 10/11/2013
