When you hear ‘Monte Carlo’ what pops into your mind? For me, every time I think of Monte Carlo, I can only think of –
As you can see, all the things that comes into my mind are so mixed-up and ridiculously different from each other! Of Grace Kelly married the Kind of Monaco, so her connection is obvious. The movie was supposedly shot in Monte Carlo, so it do have some link with Monte Carlo… The Grand Pix is the new identity of Monte Carlo… Finally, the sea front definitely represents Monte Carlo to its core.
You look at all those yachts and wonder quietly how will you reach this beautiful land, because yachts costs money! However, here is the good news for you, you can reach Monaco by train! Yes, by train!
Every day a direct train departs Gare de Lyon station of Paris for Monaco around noon. It arrives around 6.5 hours later at Monte Carlo! Monaco’s only train station is at Monte Carlo and travels adjacent to the water’s edge and easily within walking distance of the harbour. This train service is a double-decker TGV Duplex train and you should utilise this opportunity to take a seat on the top deck for some great views! I heard that the cheapest fares are the non-flexible ‘Prems’ fares. Tickets come on sale 3 months in advance. A single ticket should cost you about $ 42 and Return ticket should cost you about $ 83.
So, catch a train to Monte Carlo in your next visit of Paris!
