Value for moneyConvenience
"Getting around France by rail is relatively easy, even if you don't speak the language. Just be mindful if you are tagging around with heavy luggage as you have to haul your luggage up and down the stairways. Also, check your confirmed seats to ensure that they are conveniently allocated especially if you are travelling with elderly folks, although most passengers would be graceful to exchange their seats with you. It would be ideal if TGV can extend its line to the airport as it is costly to commute from Lyon Part Dieu to Lyon St Exupery airport. "
