Overview

Chambery, experience the unforgettable in the french Alps Mountains

Chambery, in the Rhone-Alpes region in the southeast of France, is home to the impressive Castle of the Dukes of Savoy, founded in the 11th Century. Stroll through the pretty cobbled streets in the fresh Alpine air, soak up the atmosphere at the lively Place St-Leger and don’t miss the quirky Elephant Fountain.

    Another easy Trip by Train |
    "All went well from booking to travel. Turino Station could use a lot more seating on the concourse, and food outlets are a walk. Escalators not working means lifts are to be used. Chck out location of toilets before deciding on a last minute visit! Train facilities excellent, trip relaxing and fast as usual. "

    Chambery-Challes to Turin |
    "This train was meant to leave from Platform A, but actually left from Platform B. For those of us lacking foreign language skills, this could have been disastrous. The carriage was clean and comfortable and the train ran pretty much to schedule. "

    Geneva to Chamber- Challes |
    "We undertook this trip in late April, and were generally pleased with the trip. However, two issues did cause a little bit of concern. The first was that we were sent to Platform 8 to catch the train; it left from Platform 7. It was also disappointing that we could not book reserved seats for this trip. It was a clean and comfortable trip, and ran punctually. "

    "Impressed with the comfort and prompt running of the train trip. Unimpressed with the lack of space for luggage and the attitude of other passengers getting in and out of the train - it is customary to let people get off with their luggage before you try to ram your way onto the train!!! Otherwise pleasant way to see the country and get to our destination. "

    "Good fast train, but you have to buy your snacks in First Class. Pre paid tickets before we left and all was good, saved heaps of time and didn't need to wait in long long queues to buy locally. A bit slow because of the winding track and station pick ups in Italy, but still a good trip "

    NOT UP TO SCRATCH!! |
    "Past experience on the TGV network has been great, and we were keen to take a break from our rental car for a few days for the trip from Grenoble to Turin. Well, from the moment we stepped aboard, we thought we were back on the budget express to Mumbai. The 1st class cabin was anything but - dirty, and soiled, wherever you looked. Also, luggage storage was totally inadequate, resulting in a bit of pushing "
