    Changed reply in topic of Which Paris Main Train station is closest to the Latin Quarter. I'll be coming from the Amsterdam Airport. by Jeff to Hi,<br /><br />I'm not sure how you are seeing multiple stations, because the trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/amsterdam-264" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/amsterdam-264">Amsterdam</a> only arrive into the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/paris-gare-du-nord" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/place/paris-gare-du-nord">Nord station</a> in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow">Paris</a>. In a city with numerous rail stations (such as Paris) the station a particular train arrives into depends on the region or direction its coming from. Therefore, travelers are generally not be able to choose the station they arrive into for a particular trip.<br /><br />Trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/amsterdam-264" rel="nofollow">Amsterdam</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow">Paris</a> are high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536" rel="nofollow">Thalys</a> trains, and there are <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536">Thalys</a> trains that run direct from the station at Amsterdam Schipol Airport to Paris.<br /><br />You would purchase tickets by searching the route under 'Book Train Tickets' on the homepage of our website, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>. For the trains that depart out of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/amsterdam-schiphol" rel="nofollow">station at the airport</a>, you would have to type 'Amsterdam Schipol Airport' in the field for the departure city. For the most comfortable journey, 1st class is recommended.<br /><br /><a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536" rel="nofollow">Thalys</a> trains can be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure date. If your intended departure falls outside of this time frame, you would have to enter an earlier date (a date within the next days from now) just to get an idea of the ticket costs and schedules in the meantime.<br /><br />After you arrive into the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/paris-gare-du-nord" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/place/paris-gare-du-nord">Nord station</a>, you can use the local RER or Métro to get to the Latin Quarter. The RER/Métro stop for the Latin Quarter is Saint-Michel. You should just be able to take RER Line B, which runs directly between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/paris-gare-du-nord" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/place/paris-gare-du-nord">Nord</a> and St Michel. To take the RER, you would just pay locally upon arrival..

    Changed description of We are coming from Amsterdam Airport. The route gives us several Paris stations to choose from. Which main station is closest to the Latin quarter? I understand we may also need to take a local train. <br /><br /> The 3 options they are giving me are Paris France, Paris est, and Paris nord. <br /> Also are these high speed trains? <br /><br /> Of those which would be closest to the Latin quarter? and would I need to catch a local train as well? <br /><br /> Thank you by T Rowan to We are coming from Amsterdam Airport.

    Changed reply in topic of Luggage allowed on train from Barcelona to Madrid by Jeff to Hi Susan,<br /><br />The above stated policy for <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/spain" rel="nofollow">Spain</a> applies to both 1st and 2nd class. With that said, there is more space in 1st class in general, so there still might be a little more room for luggage if you opt for 1st class.

    Changed reply in topic of 1st class vs. 2nd class from Paris to London? by Jeff to Hi Melisa,<br /><br />On trains in Europe, 1st class offers larger and more comfortable seats with more leg room. With fewer seats per train car, 1st class will also be less crowded and quieter than 2nd class. In 1st class on the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow">Eurostar</a> (the train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow">Paris</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow">London</a>), the seats also recline and a meal would be served to your seat (included in the cost of the ticket). For the most comfortable and satisfying journey, we do recommend 1st class.<br /><br />You would purchase tickets from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/paris-londres" rel="nofollow">Paris to London</a> by searching the route under 'BOOK TRAIN TICKETS' on the homepage of our website, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>.

The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/heathrow-express-8031" rel="nofollow">Heathrow Express</a> arrives into the Paddington station, so you would still have to commute from there to the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/london-st-pancras-international" rel="nofollow">St Pancras station</a>.<br /><br />The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/heathrow-express-8031" rel="nofollow">Heathrow Express</a> departs once every 15 minutes throughout the day. The ride to Paddington takes about 15 minutes from terminals 1, 2 and 3, and 23 minutes from terminal 5.<br /><br />To get from Paddington to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/london-st-pancras-international" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/place/london-st-pancras-international">St Pancras</a>, you can take the Circle Line of the Tube.

For the Tube, you would pay to board locally.<br /><br />You also want to keep in mind that the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514">Eurostar</a> requires passengers to check-in 30 minutes before departure.<br /><br />At the airport itself, the time it takes to get from the gate to the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/heathrow-express-8031" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/heathrow-express-8031">Heathrow Express</a> platforms can depend on several factors. I would just recommend allowing a time that is comparable to the amount of time it would take for you to walk through a typical major North American airport and retrieve luggage. It is also recommended that you allow an additional hour to get through customs if your flight is arriving from overseas.<br /><br />You would want to keep all this in mind when choosing your departure time from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/london-paris" rel="nofollow">London to Paris</a>..
