France Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan & Jane Fisher   Transport for Saint-Quentin, France
Train is the fastest and easiest way to reach Saint-Quentin from Paris, but driving is not bad. Beauvail-Tillé is the closest international airport.





Saint-Quentin is connected to Paris's Gare du Nord by Intercités and TER trains, with at least a dozen trains daily. Most trains make the journey in 1 hour and 20 minuts to 1 hour and 45 minutes.

The Gare de Saint-Quentin SNCF is a red brick building on the south side of the River Somme, 1.3 km (8/10 mile, about a 15-minute walk) south of the Basilique (map). City buses connect these two locations.


The A26 and A29 autoroutes connect Saint-Quentin with Reims and Amiens. The 170-km (106-mile) drive between Paris and Saint-Quentin takes just over two hours on autoroutes A1, A3 and A29.

There is a large pay car parking lot beside the Basilica, across the street from the Ibis Hotel.
