"Overnight to the south" Paris Transportation Tip by sourbugger
Paris Transportation: 1,526 reviews and 1,581 photos
I remember, years ago, on my first real trip to the continent leaving from the Gare de Lyon down to the Riveria. The longest train I had ever seen - sauntering down to the far end, we found an empty compartment. Up went the smelly old socks and bags everywhere - three seats each and a good nights sleep all the way to the south of France.
The plan only backfired when somewhere near Lyon when two gorgeous girls opened the compartment door, and then promptly buggered off again.
These days the super-fast TGV makes the journey in about six hours. Only one overnight train in each direction still remains - and that doesn't even use the Gare de Lyon. It leaves just after 9PM from the Gare Austerlitz.
