History

On 7 July 1899, a part of the territory of Villiers-sur-Marne was detached and merged with a part of the territory of La Queue-en-Brie and a part of the territory of Chennevières-sur-Marne to create the commune of Le Plessis-Trévise.

Transport

Villiers-sur-Marne is served by Villiers-sur-Marne – Le Plessis-Trévise station on Paris RER line E.

Twin towns

Villiers-sur-Marne is twinned with Entroncamento in Portugal and Friedberg in Germany. Until November 2011, it was also twinned with Bishop's Stortford in the United Kingdom, when the English town controversially cut its links with Villiers-sur-Marne, as well as Friedberg.[1]
