Reviews & ratings Avignon - Paris
"Paris to Avignon"Mary Eileen g.
Excellent experience... Very smooth ride and many amenities (food, drinks). Staff were personable and helpful.
"Paris to Avignon on the TGV"Dawn s. 18/10/2013
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.
