French Train Schedules

French train schedules may be daunting at first because they are--you guessed it--in French. Once you really take a look at your map and the giant schedules, you should be able to figure things out fairly quickly. The good thing is that most of the trains are always on time. This means you won't be stuck in a train station for hours being upset because you could have gone to one more gallery.

If you want to spend some time in France and really see what the country is all about, I suggest starting at the top and working your way around. If you are starting from London, take a boat over to Calais. You can grab a baguette with chocolate for a pre-lunch snack (that's a popular snack in France) and then head off to Paris. Spend a few days in Paris.

There's so much to do in the City of Lights. It's a good idea to take a bus tour right away. This will help you familiarize yourself with the city; you will also find it helps in choosing a few places that you want to take a closer look at. Obviously, it is recommended that you go to the Eiffel Tower. The view is amazing. Bring your camera. Also, you will probably want to see the Louvre. Even if you don't like art, this is a world landmark.

French Train Schedules and You

Heading south into the countryside of France, you will come across the town of Cahors. It's a fascinating historical town where everyone seems to have hands for doorknockers. I'm not kidding. I started to notice this as we took our walking tour. I began taking photos of the many hand doorknockers. I don't know why it is, but I know it's there. When you are willing to step off the beaten path, you can be rewarded with some of the best memories of your entire trip.
