Which Paris Main Train station is closest to the Latin Quarter. I'll be coming from the Amsterdam Airport.

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.The 3 options they are giving me are Paris France, Paris est, and Paris nord. Also are these high speed trains?Of those which would be closest to the Latin quarter? and would I need to catch a local train as well?Thank you

    I'm not sure how you are seeing multiple stations, because the trains from Amsterdam only arrive into the Nord station in Paris. 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 able to choose the station they arrive into for a particular trip.

    Trains from Amsterdam to Paris are high-speed Thalys trains, and there are Thalys trains that run direct from the station at Amsterdam Schipol Airport to Paris.

    You would purchase tickets by searching the route under 'Book Train Tickets' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com. For the trains that depart out of the station at the airport, you would have to type 'Amsterdam Schipol Airport' in the field for the departure city. For the most comfortable journey, 1st class is recommended.

    Thalys 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.

    After you arrive into the Nord station, 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 Nord and St Michel. The ride would take about 15 minutes. To take the RER, you would just pay locally upon arrival.
