      Car Rental

      Paris Jan 25, 2017 at 3:02 PM

      I want to visit Auver Sur Oise when I am in Paris next time (April) and was thinking I might rent a car to drive there and back. I think there is only one train in and one train out per day (direct on weekends). What location would be the best to rent the car so that I can avoid driving through the streets of Paris? I don't mind taking the metro to get to the car rental place, I just want to find a location on the outskirts of Paris in the direction of Auver Sur Oise. Thanks in advance.

    • DIY Day Trip

      I'm planning to make a day trip from Paris to Provins with my husband and little boy (below 2 years) via train in June.

      From other visitors' reviews, I understand that we should make the Tourist Office our first stop upon arriving at the Provins train station.

      I'd like to know if the Tourist Office is a comfortable walking distance from the train station. It would be good if you could give me an approximate walking distance or walking time based on your experience. If it's too far a walk, are taxis easily available?


      Thanks a lot!

      TRAVELLING TO PROVINS & FINDING OUR WAY

      by JANICE3242 Online Now Jun 2, 2009 at 7:23 PM

      We will be in Paris in late August and I'm interested in travelling to Provins for a day trip. I believe I can get there by rail. Does anyone know if that is true?

      We speak no French. Once we arrive in Provins, would we be able to figure out how to get to the tourist information center? I can't find any helpful information in any of the guidebooks. We found it easy to navigate in Paris last year but we used maps.

      I would appreciate any information anyone can offer about travelling to Provins. My travelling party is two adults and a 13 year old boy. The idea of a medieval town sounds delightful.
