    Reach Paris by train

    Travelling to Paris by train can be a great alternative to flying if you are coming from continental Europe or from the UK. The TGV bullet train cuts travel time down by half.

    From London, the Eurostar train reaches Paris (“Gare du Nord” station) via the channel tunnel, a thrill to experience, foregoing endless airport lines.

    Paris has 7 train stations linked to 20 European capitals.

    To reach the Congress venue directly, we strongly recommend using “Gare du Nord” station (it’s the nearest to reach the venue).
