As a few months ago I celebrated a significant anniversary, and
my grandmother (a new one) started walking five miles a day when she was sixty, she's
ninety-seven now, and we don't know where the hell she is...
So, I'll be reasonable to all Seniors: it will be a 12/14-kilometre walk
or option 10/12-km if you take a bus to reach the RER station Noisy-Champs.
Mobilis ticket or Navigo is preferable.
The walk will take place along the beautiful banks of the Marne and its
We'll visit the parc of the "Château de Champs" with its garden "à la
Française", one of the finest in France, set in a park in the English style.
* Possible visit of the chateau from 1:30 pm till 5 pm.
RER A (direction Marne-la-Vallée), stop at NEUILLY-PLAISANCE (zone 3).
Your train passes through Châtelet/Les Halles at 9:40 arriving at
Neuilly-Plaisance at 9:56.
I suggest you travel in the last carriage of the train.
Return from Noisy-Champs on the same line, but in zone 4.
Purchase a single ticket or a Mobilis.
About possible strike (and toilet) -- Normally there are many RER on this line but you never know, so perhaps you could take an earlier train depending on the situation. Toilet only in a café.
Meeting is outside the station. MAIN EXIT, place de la Gare.
Bring your usual picnic lunch, water and appropriate clothes.
See you soon! Vivement mercredi!
