How To Reach France
One of the most open and forward thinking societies of the world, France is a country that began trailblazing way back in history. A European country that crops up in every English history class, the French are known for their wines, women and clothes. The lover’s capital Paris is the capital of France and Eiffel Tower dominates its symbolism. From many small and big towns, coastal seaside resorts of the French Riviera and islands that are simply gorgeous - France is a spellbinding trip. Already planning? Here’s how you can reach France to start this adventure.
Charles de Gaulle airport of Paris is the most important and iconic international airport of the country. It is also the home ground of the country’s national carrier Air France. The next major airport is Orly (South of Paris) and helps in fielding international traffic. You can also land at Lyon, Marseilles, Nice or Bordeaux. From Indian cities (Mumbai, New Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai etc) you have regular direct and stopover flights to France with Jet Airways, Gulf Air, Air India, Air France and British Airways.
India to France is a long road, virtually quite impossible to traverse. However, you can take a road trip to France from other nearby European cities. Buses, shuttles, cars, taxis and even bicycles run between these countries. The best route is between Kent in England and Calais in France. The French countryside is probably a different kind of beautiful than English countryside, and breathes with the sweetest of sighs of vineyards and olive trees as you go south.
The Eurostar is a dedicated railway service shuttling passengers between France and other European destinations like London, Brussels, Belgium, Amsterdam etc. Domestically also you can travel by trains in France and make an interesting picturesque journey of your trip. There are also ski trains between London and the French Alps during the winter months. You will not need to pre-book a long time in advance usually in France, but make sure to do so at least a day or two before departure (especially in tourist season).
