Poitiers city guide
Poitiers, when romanesque art goes with amusement park
In the heart of the Poitou-Charentes region in western France, the beautiful city of Poitiers is waiting for you. It is located 100 km south from Tours and the world-famous Loire Valley’s chateaux, and counts a little more than 80.000 inhabitants
The whole region of Poitou-Charente is known for its multitude of religious romanesque style buildings. Poitiers presents many of remarkable examples of this beautiful architecture.
Among them, head the Notre-Dame-la-Grande’s church with its amazing sculpted facade, or visit the UNESCO listed Saint-Hilaire-le-Grand’s church, dating back from the 11th century. Several meters away from Notre-Dame-la-Grande’s church, you will discover another pearl of Poitiers’ cultural heritage : the "angevin gothic " style Saint Peter’s cathedral. If the cultural heritage of Poitiers is really rich, many other activities are available, such as the nearby Futurscope amusement park...
Whatever you do in Poitiers, you will enjoy this multifaceted and pleasant historic city.

- "TGV comfort" Joanne m. 03/02/2014
For just a few euros more we booked first class for our TGV trip from Poitiers to Montpanesse. Had a very comfortable trip which seemed to take no time at all! A great way to travel.
- "Fast Ride" Ali Murat a. 17/12/2013
We had a great ride. There was a 20 minute delay though.
- "Seat Selection" Peter o. 02/12/2013
Providing the traveler the ability to choose their seats would be an excellent feature.
- "no socket on board" Maria Rita c. 15/08/2013
I travelled in a very comfortable way with you. The train left perfectly on schedule, well done! But for the ticket price, that is not low at all, at least put sockets near the seats, please
- "Paris to Poitiers" Miles p. 13/08/2013
We nearly missed train because the train station display board went out just before displaying our train platform and no English announcement was made. We only found out the departure platform because our son used his limited school French knowledge. But the journey was comfortable.
- "Convenient travel" Runar a. 28/07/2013
Used the train in order to get to Poitiers because of non-corresponding flight.
- "Unreasonable reservation fee" Hoi Wah c. 28/06/2013
With the France Rail Pass, I can't believe I have to spend another HKD 400 for 2-seats reservation. The reservation fee policy actually limited my choice of train for France Rail Pass - if I took all the travel on TGV, the total cost for Rail Pass reservation is even higher than buying individual tickets. Please could you consider a bit from customer perspective.
- "Very happy " Rodeny d. 18/06/2013
We found the directions to know what to do a little confusing because of our limted French especially in reading it! but the staff were some what helpful. The train trip itself was easy and comfortable
- "Comfortable trip by TGV" Pui Shan c. 04/06/2013
I enjoyed very comfortable and convenient trip by TGV. It would be better if more space for big baggages. It would be perfect if tickets bought on web can also be issued at ticket office.
