Going to Paris on your own is another task by itself. If you are known to Europe bahn, then the navigation becomes easy. And if you are not so known to Europe, So, in that case, Europe Bahn maps will make it easy for you. Make sure you take one of the map from Paris est station. They provide you all the information on the train station too.
I was travelling from Stuttgart-Haubthnof metro station to Paris est in a Bullet train. My Destination was Paris Est Train Station. I walked till my hostel, all the buildings and towers of Paris looks all the same. I got lost almost thrice in the same lane. Since most of the people don’t know English, navigation becomes hard but it is fun to get lost in the lanes of Paris. Some people who look like Indians, are actually Pakistani/Afghans/Mexicans. However, they try to help you. The only food chain which was common to me was Mc Donalds, Vegetarians beware here.
Cities commonly travelled to from Paris Est Train Station:
I had booked a hostel which was nearby Sacre Coeur.
Note :- Most of the hotels do not accept Amex Cards, And the credit cards become a mandate.
Travelling to Eiffel Tower is easier by metro station
The closest Paris Metro station to the Eiffel Tower is Champ de Mars / Tour Eiffel on-line RER C. Other Metro stations close to the Eiffel Tower include Ecole Militaire on Line 8, and Bir-Hakeim on Line 6.
I would prefer Tour Eiffel, as you can see the tour from the train too. It is a tourist station so guys beware of thugs/Pick-pockets. Do not gamble on glass ball games, they make you fool very smartly.
Make sure you go till the top of the Eiffel tower even if it is worth 15 Euros. Also make sure you see all the floors which include first floor, second floor and top floor. Also, the night view and evening view of Eiffel is remarkable and must feel.
The best view of the Eiffel Tower is actually from the opposite side of the river Seine at the Trocadéro, accessed by station Trocadéro on metro line 9 and line 6.
