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.
"Great first experience"Efendy e.
My partner and I enjoyed both trip from and to Paris. The seats were comfortable, it was 1st class anyway. The only trouble was that we had to carry our heavy luggage (after doing quite some shopping in Paris) to the 2nd floor (where our seats are located). We assumed it wasn't wise to leave it on the 1st floor considering the increasing rate of crime in Europe at this time. Over all the experience was great. Nice view and we enjoyed the scenery on the way to Paris. It rained almost the whole trip to Nice so the return trip made up to it. In my opinion, the choice at the bar should have more variety. And I couldn't ask for hot water even though I'm more than willing to pay. Instead I was offered to buy a bottle of mineral water, pour it into my instant noodle cup and the attendant heat it up in the microwave, which is not exactly hot enough. Value for money Convenience
