"Best Way to Travel in France!"

  Monica o. 
The TGV experience was incredible and beats all the hassles of air travel. So fast and comfortable. Short train "shuttle" ride takes you from Avignon TGV station to small train station right outside the walls of Avignon. WIth bags we could easily walk to our hotel at nearly the other end of town in about 10 minutes (middle aged couple with no kids along). The only unpleasant part is getting luggage through metro stations in Paris to get to Gare de Lyon. One large bag each is probably all most people could manage.  

"TGV"

From Nice to Marseille is not a TGV !!! It's the slowest train ever ! From Marseille to Avignon was a nice speed and a nice experience  

"Paris to Avignon on the TGV"

Very comfortable, convenient and easy are the best words to describe our trip. It certainly was far easier than flying and much more enjoyable. You had more room and didn't feel as constricted. Flitting from one city to the next but still seeing the country side was a bonus. We had heard that travelling by train was a lot easier than flying now we can see why.
