can i go from Gare de Lyon to Presquille by train? how long does it take?
There are direct trains form Paris (Gare de Lyon) to Lyon that take about 2 hrs. You can select destination Lyon Perrache (2:16 hrs) rather than Lyon Part Dieu (2hrs) if it is closer to where you want to be.
Check trains and book on SNCF site or Trainline.eu
Lyon Perrache train station is already part of the Presqu'ile. If your hotel is more central, then you can take metro for to 2-4 short stops.
My apology for not being clear. We plan to come to Lyon by train from Nice in Sept. We would like to know if we pick a place to stay in Presquille, will we be able to get there by train from Lyon main station. Many thanks to all of you that responded.
Yes, you can make a connection at Lyon Part-Dieu and take a train that goes to Lyon Perrache. There are 2 trains per hour on average. If your hotel is near Lyon Perrache train station it can be useful, if elsewhere in Presqu'Ile probably it's better to use public transport from the start.
thank you very much Darth Feanor. Much appreciated
