Train rides from Paris SNCB- the fast train
One of the best things that I like about France are the trains. They are so convenient and will take you to many areas around the country.
We bought a rail pass before with left the states. It was a four day pass that enabled us to take 4 fabulous excursions through the country side of France.
Our day trips were long but worth while. It was so enjoyable travelling first class and looking out the window at all the beauty that France has to offer.
We visited Nimes, Bordeaux, Marseille and Lausanne which was in Switzerland. France is mostly agriculture and the beauty from the train window was breathtaking.
I cannot wait to go back to France and buy another rail pass for a few more excursions throughout France.
You will also have to reserved your seats on the train before taking your journey. It is a good idea to make these reservations at least a day before you are planning your train ride. It is easy to get to all the train stations on the Metro.
