Paris to SJPDP

Time of past OR future Camino
April 2023
Another boring question from a novice! I need to travel from Paris to SJPDP on April 11 and am a little confused about the best way to get there. I would prefer to catch a train rather than fly to Biarritz. As I’m already going to be in the centre of Paris, I thought it might be more efficient just to head the the central train station (first time in Paris and travelling this bit solo).
 
Ideal pocket guides for during and after your Camino. Each weighs just 40g (1.4 oz).
Brendajoyce,

From the Gare Montparnasse take a high speed TGV train to Bayonne. You must have a reserved ticket for the TGV. The price of the ticket is cheapest the earliest you book it. You can book on line and at the same time book a local TER train to Saint Jean Pied de Port.

Use either Trainline, or the SNCF site to book online.

The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.
https://www.thetrainline.com and https://www.seat61.com/train-travel-in-france are two sites I’ve been using to plan some near future train travel. The first one, as mspath mentioned earlier, is for searching, comparing prices and buying tickets; the latter is a good guide concerning all facets of European train travel. Buena suerte y enjoy some time in Paris, too. Great city! And, of course, buen camino.🤙🏽

Thank you so much! These sites are going to be very helpful.
 
Get a spanish phone number with Airalo. eSim, so no physical SIM card. Easy to use app to add more funds if needed.
The first edition came out in 2003 and has become the go-to-guide for many pilgrims over the years. It is shipping with a Pilgrim Passport (Credential) from the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela.
