I travelled from Brussels to Le Mans. From Brussels to Paris, I took a Thalys in premium class. In this class your meal is included like in an airplane and the food is served at your seat. Wine comes with it too. Unfortunately, only the...More

No TGV office at ZURICH main station. Limited displays and lack of information will make it difficult to board. Overall average cleanliness and just ok service

Took Thalys from Paris Gare Du Nord to Amsterdam Centraal. US$220+@ on goeuro.com. Got to our seats to discover them occupied by non-English and non-French speaking individuals. After we showed them our tickets, they stood up and left. Later we saw them and a couple...More

We took Thallys from Amsterdam to Paris. On time. It was very comfortable, good wifi, a cable coupler in the middle, under the retractable table in front of you. You can work with your laptop if you need it.

We took the TGV first class from Gare de Lyon to Avignon as a 3 hr train ride seemed a much better option than a 7+ hr drive. Still happy with the choice but SNCF employees really need to spend less time going on strike...More

I'm literally on the train now in 1er carriage. The interior is dated but in the least it is clean. Everything is quite basic, most notably the business seat. It resembles an airline premium economy seat (at best). I passed on lunch, but I am...More

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy
Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois
de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make

Paris to Avignon is 658km and TGV does it in about 2.5 hrs so do the math for that: Avignong to Cannes will Be a bit slower as more stops: Whatever the speed, it is MUCH faster than driving

We did not use Europass. We used Trainline EU app. You set up a profile with your age and then you are good to go with the senior rate. Happy travels.
