Reviews & ratings Barcelona - Paris
The journey from Barcelona Sants to Paris Gare Lyon was very easy. The ticketing was straightforward, getting to the station and on the train was simple, and the journey itself was comfortable and pleasant. It gave us a chance to see some countryside and rest as we travelled.
Thoroughly enjoyed the experience of traveling by high speed train (TGV) from Paris to Barcelona. The train was clean, comfortable, very quiet, the large club seats are much more comfortable than poky airline seats
