Getting From Paris to St. Jean Pied de Port


New Member
Hi all,

I am hoping to fly to and stay in Paris for a little bit before starting the camino in St. Jean Pied de Port. Is there an easy way to from Paris to there via train? I do not know French, but in my attempts to look online it doesn't look like St. Jean has a EuroRail station.

Anyone have any advice for this?

Thanks so much!

If you don't have anywhere to stay in Paris, you could try the Village Hostel - 24 euro in a dorm or 30 euro double with breakfast included.
