Reviews & ratings Avignon - Carcassonne
Interesting trip - usual TGV comfort and smoothness once we had found our way through the mountain of large suitcases and the milling mob in the entry to the carriage. Most surprising was the Amazon who appeared from out of the mob with her two very large dogs... not sure how there was space for all three of them. Carcassone station also well located on the edge of town just over the Canal.
Showing the composition of the train is very helpful in finding your car, particularly when the stop is brief. Second class is quite comfortable and roomy, and more than acceptable. Avignon railway station very well located close to the old town, and very accessible.
We took six train trips in September 2013, a mixture of first and second class tickets. The train journeys were very enjoyable. It was far less stressful than driving while following GPS directions and watching for road signs in French. The only negatives were the last minute posting of the platform number for the train and the confusing order of the carriages. Sometimes the carriage number signs on the carriages did not match the signs on the platform display. Both these contribute to a free-for-all rush carrying luggage up and down stairs.
The trip was only a couple of hours. Safe, comfortable, clean and on time. Great value for money. Beats driving hands down.
