Travel inspiration in Lyon and Dijon
Lyon, the capital of French gastronomy
Proud of its history – Lyon was once the capital of the Gauls – the city offers an original trip back in time and through cultures. Gastronomy, culture, fêtes, nature, silk, light... you name it! Lyon has it! Besides being known for its culinary and architectural heritage, Lyon is also renowned for its effervescent cultural scene. The most appealing event of the city is the Festival of Lights, which takes place during four nights in December.
Dijon, the capital of the Burgundy
Dijon is a town located in Burgundy region and home to more than 150,000 inhabitants. The town is probably most famous for its mustard. With an exceptional architectural heritage, the city of Dijon has 97 hectares of remarkably preserved monuments. Dijon is the gateway to the world renowned Côte de Nuits vineyards. Visitors can choose a guided tour to the vineyards and enjoy a glass of excellent wine in Marsannay-la-Côte, Gevrey-Chambertin, Vosne-Romanée or Nuits-Saint-Georges. Don’t forget to look out for the lucky charm of Dijon: the particularly worn-out little Chouette, which fulfills the wish of those who touch it with a left hand stroke.
Dijon is conveniently found on the Rhin-Rhône high speed railway line, making it easily reachable from Paris in approximately 1h35 and from Basel (Switzerland) in 2h10 by train.
Reviews & ratings Lyon - Dijon
it was on time and comfortable...eveything is good except for no wifi acess on the train..the price is a little bit high...
Everything was just great! We travelled around France and I had a choice: to rent a car or to use local trains. I have choosen to travel by train and we are absolutely satisfied with this decision. It was comfortable, convenient and in full accordance with the schedule.
It has always been a nice experience to travel from Paris Gare de Lyon as things are well-organized and the trains are comfy with peaceful atmosphere to relax along the trip. We booked the tickets not much in advance so they cost us a bit more than we would expected. Apart from the price, everything went well and was fine.
This train was stopped at a station before it reached St Malo due to a problem with the track ahead. We were kept sitting in the train for some time - at least half an hour - before suddenly everyone started getting off. We do not speak French and struggled to understand what was going on. We collected our luggage and followed other passengers to the Bus Station where we again waited some time - at least 20 minutes - before buses came to transport us the rest of the journey to St Malo. We had to ask staff to explain what was happening in English as there was little consideration for passengers who did not speak French. Water was handed to passengers as they embarked on the buses. We were especially disappointed as we only had a little more than 24 hours to spend in St Malo and lost at least 1 1/2 hours of that time because of the additional travel time caused by the delay. We were handed forms to fill in to receive compensation for the inconvenience caused but have yet to establish if we will have part of the cost of the fare reimbursed. We appreciated the fact this was offered.
The TGV was slightly delayed arriving in Lyon. We had two connections further to that which we missed. Arriving in Bourg en Bresse too late for a train to our final destination that evening. The station master and his team were wonderfully helpful and organised us a taxi, at no charge to ourselves to take us to our final destination 60km away. First class service with a smile. 5*'s to the French railways network. We would like to to send them an email if you can supply us with details.
I loved it how we could print out tickets out straight away, saving us the hassle of going to the train station earlier with all our luggage (to find the customer service booth, wait in line for our turn, wait again while they searched for our tickets, etc.). Everything was as it should have been. Couldn't be happier.
It was a pleasant trip from Paris to Dijon by TGV, train was nice, clean and punctual! I am impressed, it is such a great way to travel in France. Australia...please learn something from France!
