Beyond the highlights of the city, Paris is the ideal place to discover the French art de vivre. Take a seat in a café and simply enjoy the scene in front of you: locals shopping fresh food from authentic markets, people taking their time for lunch which usually lasts more than an hour, women and men who are well groomed in a simple yet fashionable way… Simple things that make life much more enjoyable. When it’s time to eat, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Indeed, Paris has a wealth of restaurants serving specialities from every corner of the world.

"Clean and comfortable train, good journey and on time. We and other passengers at Aix were a bit confused about getting on the right carriage so the signage could be improved as there is not much time to get on and it is a bit unsettling in the rush. We enjoyed the trip, would do it again and certainly recommend the TGV to other travellers Paul Harrison - Australia "

"This was a hassle free journey from Paris to Aix en Provence! The train was extremely comfortable in first class and amazingly great value for money. We arrived relaxed and it was easy to acces our rental car from the station. Have three more destinations to reach in Italy, and we're confident it will be just as enjoyable. "
