Train Paris → Aix-en-Provence
Duration 03:04 - From $30
An effortlessly chic moveable feast Effortlessly chic. An effusion of culture, couture and cuisine. A place whose name alone conjures up images of whirlwind romances and infamous scribes : This is Paris. Whether you’re arriving to or departing from Paris by train, you’ll get to travel through one of the seven train stations currently in use. Paris’ train stations are spectacular buildings, which have been immortalized by generations of artists such as famed French painter and impressionist pioneer Claude Monet. Gare De Lyon, built for the World Exposition of 1900 is a classic study in architecture for that time period. But don’t be fooled by the façade. Inside you’ll find the high-speed TGV terminal that whisks travelers throughout France at record speeds. Walk with your head toward the sky, under its massive glass roof or have dinner in the legendary Train Bleu restaurant. This is a unique traveler experience - inside a train station. However, the real excitement is where the train can take you. With France’s dense railway network, you can reach most French – and European – cities within a few hours. On the world-class Eurostar, get to London in just 2 hours and 15 minutes. Or board the Thalys train for a quick getaway to Brussels in just 90 minutes or Amsterdam in just over 3 hours. The record-breaking TGV can whisk you to Geneva (3h20) or Zurich (4h30) via its TGV Lyria service, or Frankfurt (4h), via the recently inaugurated TGV East line. Learn more about Paris
Marks the spot for artists and dreamers Rolling into Aix-en-Provence (pronounced “ex”) by train is like being a paintbrush on a Cezanne canvas ; fluidly moving through space and color. The landscape is a magical mix of flower fields and inspiring mountains. The Mount Saint Victoire suddenly presents before you. This impressive limestone formation measures nine miles long and over 3000 feet at its summit. The light at different times of day shows an endless range of colors. No wonder the painter Paul Cezanne felt compelled to capture this mythical mountain in all its glory, over and over and over again. Learn more about Aix-en-Provence

"We recently got the tgv from aix en Provence to Paris. It was great we travelled 1st class and the seats were very comfortable. It was so much quicker and less stressful than driving. I thought it was excellent value for money , we booked earlier and got a good deal. "
