Paris to St. Jean

Hi everyone. I'm flying from Toronto to Paris in three weeks, and plan to start the Camino in St. Jean a few days later. Any ideas on the best way to get from Paris to St. Jean? I assume it will involve a taxi at some point, but what might be the nearest train station?

I will try to get my answers in this topic then.

We need some help with trains.
Landing on CDG 18august at 11.55 am. We would love to get to St. Jean the same day in the evening. I know, there is few options allowing that, but train changes are a bit tight- that's why I need some advice.

The best option we have found so far is 13.37 train to Bayonne (13.37- 19.48) then change to 19.58 to St. Jean. Help me!

It could be faster for you to fly from Orly to Biarritz and get a train to St Jean from there.
Dep: 14:55 Paris, Orly (ORY) Arr: 16:10 Biarritz (BIQ) - France 01h15mn £ 43

If you choose to go by train, the TGV leaves CDG at 13h37 and arrives in Bayonne at 19h48 Costs From £53.50
PARIS CDG AIRPORT(AEROPORT CDG 2TGV) TO BAYONNE -
LEAVING ON Monday 18/08/08 - JOURNEY TIME 6h,11m
Departure AEROPORT CDG 2TGV - 13:37
Arrival BAYONNE - 19:48
Train TGV Interconnexion

From Bayonne you can get a bus to St Jean. The last bus to St Jean leaves at 21h06 and gets to St Jean at 22h18

Bus timetable to St Jean here:

Hope this helps.

Thanks Sil! Now we know almost everything. 99% chance that we will go for a train (enviromental freaks).
I don't think, that a bus ticket to st.Jean is online bookable- is it?
Thanks. Kuba.

Thanks Sil.

I have just received a message from Tim (http://www.errecaldia.com) and he's saying that 21.06 from Bayonne is a TRAIN. I guess, we will have to wait till tomorrow evening to be absolutelly sure:))
I will try to ask about it on the train from Paris (just hope that someone will speak english).

And we are so excited and happy for that journey. We are both packed under 10kgs (incl.1ltr of water), so it's all good. I will let you know when we get there.
Buen camino to us and hasta luego to you guys;)))
Kuba.

Buen Camino Kuba.
Yes, there is a train at the same time as the bus.
Take it easy the first few days. Tread softly, drink it all in, be kind to all you meet.
Abrazos,

Hi Kuba
21h06 is a train from Bayonne, but #4 explain"beginning 25 august"
so: the last train from Bayonne is 19h58 to SJPP 21h11. That means 10 minutes for the Bayonne
connection. Why not...?
