Bien desservie

Versailles has excellent train and bus links for greater Paris suburbia!

And, does Ms. Cieldequimper commute into Paris for work or does she stay out in the burbs?

T. Becque said...

And I've experienced this excellent link first hand! :)

Indeed, the links look quite thorough. They must make it easier than driving a car and waiting in traffic to get around the town, which is what we do in little ole Charleston.

Bob Crowe said...

And we can't wait. Which RER line takes us nearest to the palace?

Regina K said...

Jack's comment has me attempting to think of Versailles as a suburb. And know I am curious if you take the 5 line into work?

Randy said...

I would be the one looking like a lost soul wondering the city.

Malyss said...

Ou comment mettre Versailles au centre du monde! :o)
Comme quoi tout est question de point de vue!
Bon dimanche!

cieldequimper said...

@ Regina: well... yes, it's a suburb, part of sprawling Greater Paris.

Do you know the statistics of how many use public transportation vs privatel transportation.

Kaori said...

Now I'll know how to get there if I ever visit to Paris :D

Woody said...

It's nice to be near the hub, you can get anywhere and it looks well organized. They are attempting to rename our trains but the new names are not taking.

Jacob said...

I'm so jealous! We have nothing like this and everything is so spread out that to go anywhere or get anything one has to get in a car and drive!

Re your questions:

Yes, that frame is made of wood; no, you wouldn't want to pet one of those cats; what? you don't like dogs? Your mind is somewhere south like Tim's; and I think there was one other comment which I'll have to check.

Hope you're having a good Sunday!

A suburb... with a grand palace! :)

I am intrigued by your map as I have not seen more than the 170 bus line and the RER C... I need to expand my horizons, oui?

Bises,

These maps always remind me of mazes for rats.

Une situation revee pour beaucoup.

VP said...

We can confirm that! Transportation (when it works) is much better than here!

Halcyon said...

No shortage of routes there!

It looks so neat and tidy this system Ciel, we drove from Paris to Versailles when we came to see the Palace, oh I wish I was there again!

Virginia said...

I love this. I have a friend making me a small necklace with a small map of the Metro stop I love.

One of the many things I enjoy about visiting European countries: Highly developed mass transit systems. Americans aren't so good at that sort of thing.

One day, I will be back....
