Travel inspiration in Lyon and Marseille
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.
Marseille, the capital of Provence region
Marseille is the oldest French city and the second most important city in France after Paris. Marseille is located on the southeast coast of France in the Provence region. The city is known for its harbour, sunny climate and beautiful coastline. The natural beauty of Marseille is reflected by its parks and calanques. This explains why Marseille has retained a particular village feel. From the historic Panier district to the Romanesque churches, the city is full of treasures. The famous Notre Dame de la Garde, which overlooks the city from the top of a hill, is not be missed.
Reviews & ratings Lyon - Marseille
"Travelling France via Rail"King Shan Carol c.
It was a pleasant journey in general. We appreciated the speed of the train. Yet, we hope the hygiene of the toilets could be improved. On our journey from Marseilles to Bordeaux, all the toilets on the train was extremely filthy. It was a long journey and we needed to go to toilet quite often. Thanks for reading my review. Carol
"Marseille to Gare De Lyon "Mee Mew c. 17/10/2013
It will be good if the announcement can be in English in addition to the French like in most Airline.
"Lyon-Geneva-Lyon"William n. 15/10/2013
We recently travelled as above... the journey to Geneva was not easy as SNCF decided to finish the trip at a station well before Geneva !!! Eventually order prevailed ( there were a lot of non-fluent trevellers, and we were led to another train. This of course meant substantial delays for everyone on the train. The train inquestion was fairly old and not all that comfortable. However, the return trip was another story... a very comfortable train,left on time - arrived on time. Not your fault at Rail Europe.. just one of those things. We have booked with you before, and will be using you again. Bill
"Strasbourg - Lyon"Volodymyr a. 14/10/2013
Convenient, comfortable, in time.
"Paris CDG - Lyon"Radu c. 14/10/2013
It was a great ride! I loved it at it was my first time riding the TGV. The downside was that the coach had a funny smell, probably from when they cleaned the carpets, and it was a bit bothering.
"Gare Lyon-Lausanne"Radu c. 07/10/2013
My trip for the above is very good. Ground staff were helpful this time, seats were comfortable, convenient and price was reasonable. The cabins however were not clean. Lots of rubbish fell in between and quite dusty, rather unsightly. Regards, Lyn
