Reviews & ratings Nice - Avignon
We had the tickets, but I was concerned that I had to do more with them, get them stamped or something, but information told me I was good to just board and use them. With these trains, you just wait in the area near the platforms (voies) and wait until the boards show which one your train will board from. Then there is a mad rush as everyone heads down a platform and onto a train. If you're coach 12, that can be a long way down the platform. Good smooth travel, quiet and fast.
We enjoyed the trip though we left a bit late due to some troubles elsewhere on the line. Apart from this train travel in France, and this trip in particular, was good. Our only complaint would be that there doesn't seem to be quite enough room for cases for people who have a case or two that they are travelling with.
We were very happy with our train travel around France.
we found train travel excellent and a convenience way to link up our river cruise plus the tour of southern France
good experience - only thing found difficult was can't find out where your carrige will be prior to getting on the train
Date of travel was 28 June 2013 - the date shown above was probably the date of booking the journey. Train departed on time and arrived at Nice Ville on schedule. One complaint - no-one checked tickets either on boarding or during the journey leaving open the possibility of persons travelling without a ticket. Will definitely use TGV in future.
We found the TGV service very good once we had located the area we need to validate our pass. Our next challenge was to take our luggage to the upstairs platform. None of that was too difficult although taxing due to lack of lift facilities that we could locate easily. We manage all of it but we very disappointed to find that we were upstairs and had to leave our luggage downstairs in the corridor. I realise that tickets are allocated automatically - however, I am sure that one should be able to choose where one wants to sit - downstairs for instance if with heavy luggage.
Its worth the extra paying for 1st class. Was only 5 euros more and was very comfortable. The journey went very quickly.
No problems with the trip, on time and fast. The toilets stink however.
We loved our train journey, such comfy seats, with great views and terrific service.
