Travel inspiration in Venice and Paris
Venice is a unique experience for every traveller and certainly a must for lovers. Few people know that Venice is actually an island-city with a train bridge connecting it to mainland Italy. This romantic city actually has no roads at all! To move around there are 150 canals and over 400 bridges! Venice has also beautiful churches, squares and museums. The southern part of the Venice has a certain village feel. Perfect to wander around in the little alleys, get lost and finally reach the Santa Margherita square. Ideal place for its lively bars!
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.
Reviews & ratings Venice - Paris
"Journey was comfortable"Md. Nazmul Hossain c.
Travel from Zurich to Paris was very comfortable. Food in the train was also very good. Altogether it was a nice experience.
"Train to Venice"Priscilla e. 18/04/2014
We thoroughly enjoyed this train ride, from first boarding in Vienna with the goodie bags set out for us through arrival in Venice in the morning. The ride was comfortable and the porter was friendly and helpful. We look forward to taking this train again.
"Excllent"Priscilla e. 18/04/2014
I have travelled from Paris to Interlaken Ost, it was the best travel of my life,the comfort of seats, dinning in the train compartment is a very good experience, and the behavior of staff is very polite and very cooperative. I would like to travel again and again.
"Enjoyable trip"Raymon C D s. 17/04/2014
I used Austria Night Train from Wien Westbahnhof to Venezia S Lucia with my wife and daughter. We took the T3 Sleeper. The cabin in seating position is a little bit small and cramp - not leaving extra space inside the cabin. We had 4 cabin size luggage and we were feeling lucky that we have the cabin size luggage because otherwise it will take up so much space. Once the seat changed to bed mode, then it is more comfortable. We can lie down and take a sleep. I was surprised with the amenities, we got water, slippers, tooth brush and sparkling wine. However, they were quite bulky and take up so much space. Overall, the bed is comfortable so we can sleep throughout the night. In the morning we got some breakfast but they were all very minimal. The staff was very friendly and make the trip become more enjoyable. So, I would recommend this mode of transportation: 1) you save your airfare cost and 2) you save on your one night hotel because you can sleep in the train :)
"From London to Paris"Jonathan g. 17/04/2014
The train ride from London St Pancras to Paris Gare du Nord was a smooth ride. The train took off on time and even arrived slightly ahead of time in Paris that was expected. The seats were comfortable and staff were very friendly. On my way, back from Paris, the staff showed unlimited concern to an elderly passenger who was sitting around me. Very impressed.
"Amsterdam to Paris train"Noor Soffalina s. 16/04/2014
The train arrived on time. Staffs at the train station checked if everybody have the right tickets, and usher them to the correct area on the platform based on your carriage number. So you dont have to run all the way back if your seat is at the last carriage. However, they should have advise us earlier what to so with big luggage. We only know afterwards that we should take another door which have the bag storage racks. We got our seat and the train starts departing Amsterdam CS. After a while, announcement was made that the cafe was open. Since we didnt have breakfast, we went there to buy some food. We had to wait quite a while, the staff wasnt even ready. upon returning to our seats, we were surprise to find people in our seats. After a while, we figured out that we had the correct seat number but wrong carriage number. That was super confusing! There is no where in the train to know which carriage number it is. And every carriage has the same seat number?? It would be beneficial to have those clearly written. As the train make stops along the way to take passengers, so once you are in your seat, do not think it's definitely yours, you might get it wrong like us.
"Fast and efficient!"Emily y. 13/04/2014
We took the train from Paris to Reims for champagne tours and it was quiet, comfortable, fast and fun! I recommend!
"A great train trip"Willa s. 12/04/2014
As on previous CDG trips, this one was great- arrival and departure right on time, comfortable seating and the wonderful convenience of leaving from the airport., Our only problem was in booking - I didn't take note ot the site I booked (and paid ) on so when an email of confirmation did not arrive, I was unable to track our tickets and had to re-book and re-pay.
"Zurich to Paris by TGV"Vaughan h. 12/04/2014
Nice fast trip in comfortable seating. Good range of food in the dining car, helpful staff.
"Paris long weekend"Stewart g. 10/04/2014
Easy to book, fast and reliable the TVG was exactly what you would expect from a premier rail service. The return journey on the ICE was good but not equal to the TGV experience. I would and have happily recommended the service to friends.
"Paris to London"Leslie a. 10/04/2014
Fast, courteous service. Will use again
"Train from Rennes to CDG "Barbara m. 13/12/2013
I booked in advance and managed to obtain return first class tickets at a good price. The journeys were fast, smooth, warm, quiet and comfortable. I look forward to many more train journeys in the future.
"To Venezia with comfort"Viacheslav s. 11/12/2013
Very pleasant trip by your train
"Trip from Paris to London"Xuan Tian s. 11/12/2013
Booking a Eurostar train from Paris Gare Du Nord to London St Pancras was easy and fast. However, we were unable to choose our seats and we got a back facing seat. It was quite uncomfortable and we didn't like siting back facing. It would be good if Rail Europe allow choosing of seats on the website.
"Aachen to Paris"Marc p. 10/12/2013
We traveled to Germany with my husband on business. It was very convenient to get to the Aachen train station and then to Paris. The train station in Paris was 2 blocks from our hotel. The ease of taking the train helped make the trip memorable. The train was clean and neat and the seat have adequate room if you have to travel for long periods of time.
