    Default Several questions on getting around- 7 1/2 hours in Paris!!

    Hello- If you could please help me with the following details:
    1) Getting from Austerlitz to Gare du Nord. We arrive at 0715 from Spain.
    2) Storage lockers at GdN?
    3) Getting to Pere-Lahaise Cemetery from GdN?
    4) Getting to Eiffel Tower from P-L Cemetery-- have 1130 tickets for ET
    5) Back to GdN after Eiffel Tower-- Have Eurostar tickets at 1615- want to be there getting our luggage at 1515.
    I need a mixture of speed, ease and not overtly costly. I don't mind a taxi to make it easy/quicker in some instances. This will be for my husband and I and our 6 year old son. We will be coming off of a month in Italy/Spain, so besides not speaking ANY French (sorry!), we will have travelled a bit before arriving in Paris.
    Thank you so, so much for your help and detailed instructions. I really do appreciate it!

    To get from Gare Austerlitz to Gare du Nord:
    Take Metro 5; Direction: Bobigny-Pablo-Picasso
    Exit at Gare du Nord

    There is baggage storage at Gare du Nord; near car rental agencies.

    To get from Gare du Nord to Pere Lachaise
    Take Metro 5; Direction: Bobigny-Pablo-Picasso
    Exit at Stalingrad
    Take Metro 3; Direction: Nation
    Exit at Pere Lachaise

    From Pere Lachaise to Gare du Nord (for Eiffel Tower)
    Take Metro 3; Direction: Pont de Vallois-Bacon
    Exit at Republique
    Take Metro 5; Direction: Bobigny-Pablo-Picasso
    Exit at Gare du Nord

    For convenience, I would taxi from Gare du Nord to the Eiffel Tower and taxi back to Gare du Nord from the Eiffel Tower to make your Eurostar connection.

    The Metros run every few minutes for each leg of your trip (Austerlitz-Gare du Nord-Pere Lachaise-Gare du Nord). Each trip take about 15 minutes, so you should have plenty of time to maintain your schedule.
