Overview

France is not only Paris, its Eiffel Tower and its Moulin Rouge. It’s also majestic mountains, beautiful beaches and picturesque countryside.

France has one of the most extensive and modern railway networks in Europe. The railway network is managed by SNCF, the French national railway company. SNCF literally stands for Société Nationale des Chemins de fer Français in French. More than 32,000 km of railway tracks are managed by SNCF. The group is a leading travel company in France and throughout the world. The high speed rail service in France is almost entirely operated by SNCF through its flagship trains called the TGV. Other local and regional trains are operated by the company. Regional trains are called TER. A seat reservation is mandatory for pass holders to travel on board the TGV.

Cityscape

In Paris and around, you have already a lot to see. Pompidou Center, Louvre museum, Versailles Castle and so one are waiting for you. From France’s capital, you can hop on a train to discover the German influence in Strasbourg, the Spanish one in Toulouse. You can also stroll in Bordeaux neo-classical streets or discover Renaissance Lyon and its “traboules”.

Landscape

France is everything that you want. Board a train to Provence to be wowed by the landscape. Explore the numerous Loire Valley Castles or be touched by the Prehistoric Painted caves in Dordogne. If you like nature, enjoy canoeing along Ardèche’s river, go skiing in the Pyrenees or run to Camargue plateau to admire wild horses.

Take Home

If you like high-end fashion, you’ll find beautiful shops in Paris, Bordeaux, or Cannes. Buy some foie gras in Dordogne while you visit. In the Provence region, pick up olive oil and by-products. If you like wines, Loire Valley, Burgundy and Bordeaux regions provide excellent ones.

Eat & Drink

If you’re visiting France by train, stop on Toulouse to taste the Cassoulet. In eastern region Alsace try the choucroute, or the Bouillabaisse (fish soup) with anise-flavoured Pastis if you are near Marseille.

New Perspective

If you’re fond of contemporary art, wander around the Abattoirs in Toulouse or around Paris’ Palais de Tokyo, or enjoy the view from the new Millau’s viaduct, an amazing bridge.

    Paris Nord-London St Pancras |
    "Would thoroughly recommend travelling by train from Paris to London. Train was easy to access, comfortable and affordable. The weather conditions delayed departure time however that was unavoidable. First class carriage was very comfortable and the breakfast served was an unexpected delight. Will certainly repeat this experience in the future. "

    "Excellent service although all the tickets booked through Raileurope we received the worst seats available. Either no windows (the panel seats) and/or facing backwards. W booked early and though we would get better seats. Rest of service was excellent. "

    Comfortable, but mixed review |
    "It was not clear online that wifi is only provided once we crossed the border into Germany. Wifi also did not work on my connecting ICE train between Frankfurt and Munich, which was a disappointment as I needed to contact those meeting me upon my arrival. There were no lockers for my suitcase, despite it being advertised online so I had to keep it next to me as was too big to go overhead. Otherwise, a nice, yet expensive for value, experience. "

    "The train was comfortable and was on time. We found the Wi-Fi useful too. There was not enough room for our luggage and these had to be kept in the entrance foyer of the carriage so I found myself having to get up at every stop to make sure they were not in the way of entering and exiting passengers. other passengers had theirs in corridors, so additional luggage space would be beneficial. Also we found that there was a conflict of seat numbers as there was someone in one of our seats when we boarded and during the course of the trip another passenger had the same seat number as us and the train guard was called to sort it out. These things made the trip a little awkward but apart from this the trip was pleasurable. "
