|Subject: Re: Giverny train times|
Helio, I found my brochure from SNCF that the ticket seller at Gare Saint
Lazare gave me.
Train times are for weekdays 30 March - October 2002:
Depart Paris 8:16, 11:03, 12:04 and 14:23.
Saturdays at 8:39, 12:04, 13:45, 14:23.
Sundays and public holidays:
Depart Paris 8:06, 9:32, 10:44, 14:25.
The bus meets the train, for example, there is a 9:15 bus from Vernon (Train station) to Giverny arriving at 9:30.
buses at 14:10, 17:15, 18:55 with arrivals in Paris at 15:44, 18:48 and 20: 10. Saturday buses at 14:10, 17:15. No extra bus scheduled for the 18:43 train. Sunday buses at 14:45, 16:45, 17:25.
Bike rental possible at Vernon Station.
Train fare 1st class round trip 31, 40 euros; 2nd class 21 euros.
Taxi during the week is 10 euros for 1-3 people with an extra euro for the fourth person. A few euros more on Sundays.
Bus fare, 1 way, was 1, 90 euros.
Entry to the Foundation 5 euros.
Trains are crowded sometimes because it comes from the coastal towns.
You can reserve seats for non-TGV trains - for a few euros. If standing is definitely a problem, ask about that. Take a look at the sncf train page - this is a new service. Go to http://www.voyages-sncf.com/ Select flag for English and select Passenger's Guide from the grey box.

Hope this helps.
