HOW TO GET AROUND IN PARIS

To show where Paris is on the map

You can go by train, bus or ferry from London & Dover, England:

When going from London to Paris via train, the Eurostar is by far the fastest but you'll need buy the tickets in advance.

A cheaper but longer ride is on the Britrail (train) to Dover, England (2 1/2 hours), a bus ride to the ferry terminal (10 minutes), check in at the ferry terminal, a 5 min bus ride to the ferry, ferry ride (1 1/2 hours), bus ride to town of Calais train station (10 min) and train ride to Paris (4 hours)--not to mention the waiting, which can transform this very unpopular trip to 12 hours!
