Your travel by train from Paris to Lausanne
Lying on the shores of Lake Geneva is Switzerland’s Lausanne and getting there from Paris takes just under four hours on the high speed TGV Lyria. The air-conditioned trains offer two classes of service and First Class passengers enjoy refreshments in their seats. There’s a buffet car too with hot and cold snacks. All passengers relax in comfortable reclining chairs watching the scenery slip by.
The TGV Lyria leaves Paris from its busy hub of Gare de Lyon, which is easy to reach from anywhere in central Paris on the metro or RER or even by bus or taxi. Once in Lausanne public transport from the Metro line M2 to buses and overland trains are easily accessible. The station also has regional express and intercity trains departing regularly for destinations around Switzerland as well as a simple train connection to the airport.

Reviews & ratings Paris - Lausanne
Seating ok, nothing really first class about that. Swiss IR trains 2nd class was lot better. Food was below average, no Vegetarian food. No choices at all. Quantity very less, luckily we did bring our own food. Tickets should be checked before boarding as did not have Euro Rail passes, this could have been informed earlier or made to bought along with tickets as online pricing was very confusing. Booking Taxi was just perfect. Staff Supportive..Thanks, sorry will not recommend to anyone or never try the 1st class again.
I had the opportunity to travel on the TGV Lyria fast train from Paris to Lausanne on the 7th of September, 2015. The train was scheduled to depart at 15:58 p.m. from Paris Gare de Lyon station and it left exactly at the scheduled time. The overall journey was very comfortable and allowed me a relaxed trip. I would definitely recommend the TGV Lyria trains for anyone looking to travel across Europe.
WiFi in the train would have been good
easy and very nice
The TGV is an excellent train that provided us with a very comfortable journey in a short period of time.
It was a very good experience traveling Swiss by train! The train was convenient and easily available. Most important thing was that I could see fantastic sceneries during the trip by getting trains!
I travelled with my wife and 3 kids. Full marks for cleanliness and upkeep of the train and the cabin. We were on a 15 days holiday and hence had 3 medium sized luggage and some small hand held bags but storage was sufficient to accommodate all of them without any hassles. We are vegetarians (Vegan) and little skeptical about the food on the train but to our surprise the food was very good and we really enjoyed it. The ravioli and the salad were very good. The wine too was very good but in France it always is. Speed was thrilling and the train was punctual to the minute. All in all a perfect journey. Loved it
We traveller first Class and loved it! Food and everything was soo good! Only thing missing was wifi on the train
I was so tired that i did not feel the trip
we travel in second class from Paris to Lausanne - it was very good and convenient. back we travel from Basel to paris in first class it was great, comfortable, the food was tasty , we are satisfy from the way we decided to travel- with TGV!!!!!
Great and fast train. Train was depart and arrived as per scheduled.
A good and easy way to trovel without driving.
The train was clean, comfortable and on time - however, i noticed that some of the passengers who arrived later did not have space to stow their luggage (large bags which could not go in the overhead storage area or under the seat).
The two cities are quite near, but it is better to take a direct train. We took a train with many stops and near 5 pm. At that time the classes were over and the train was crowded with students.
