Overview

France’s high-speed rail network also connects to neighboring countries.

All major French cities are connected by TGV, the high speed train network which travels at speeds nearly 200 mph. Considering that France is the size of Texas, your destinations are now just a “whirl” away.

In no more time than the average New York commute (or about 45 minutes), you could hop from Paris to Reims while marveling through the magnificent vineyards of Champagne. Just two hours takes you from Paris to the cultural center of Nantes. There, you’ll ride along the Loire, watching local fishermen boating on the “royal river.” In three-hours, TGV journeys to Marseille and the Mediterranean Sea. Here, you’ll discover gorgeous geography and fascinating history, traveling through Burgundy’s medieval villages, along the tumultuous Rhone river, and through Provence where you’ll pass by the Pont du Gard—a 161-foot high Roman aqueduct, still overlooking lavender fields a mere 2,000 years after completion.

What’s more, France’s high speed rail network also connects to neighboring countries. And you can be in many North-European capitals in a few short hours from Paris. Why fly when you can enjoy the comfort, speed, and convenience of train travel ? Not to mention its environmental friendliness.

If you plan to travel just once or twice on TGV, you should purchase tickets. Or, if you’d rather an in-depth exploration of a particular region via the local train service, choose a France Rail Pass. The pass lets you hop on and hop off local trains (which run frequently and are very comfortable). Just be sure to make a reservation to secure seating on longer-distance trips.

    "It was my first experience on the rail, schedule to meet so was very worried if I could make it on time but it all went well and the station master was very helpful. The ticket validation was a bit frustrating as it wasn't clear where the yellow machines were but people where very helpful. Very good system ! "

    "Bought 1st class ticket. No seats for the family in 1st class cabin. There were no seats for 2nd class cabin too. My family and I had to stand for 1 hour before we can find any seats (left with one station to our destination). Extremely terrible experience to be shared wit friends and relatives. It wiped off the positive experience in the earlier trip. Will not take rail travel again. "

    "The train trip was very nice, relaxing and the scenery was beautiful. The food onboard is just a bit expensive. The comfort of the seats could be better, but definitely much better than flying and much more convenient saving a lot of time, only have to be there 30 min before. "
