  • Gare du Nord is a well appointed station. It is the best way to arrive in Paris from the UK. Straight into the heart of the city and well set with Metro and overground options.  more »
  • As soon as you get to Paris I recommend that you go to this station and get the Voleto Navigio you can access all means of transportation, for as long as you stay. To the Funicular.

  • Fast-service burger chain. Decent if you are heading to the Eurostar without much time.
  • My fries were cold and the burger very small and nothing like the picture. I will go to the MacDonald's next door next time.
  • Far superior to McDonald's
  • Food, milkshake taste bad, couldn't complete it. Macdonalds is better and cheaper!
  • Unwelcoming staff, clearly they didn't like me asking if they had pomotions for students. Hm ok.
