Change at Marseille for Avignon / Lyon / Paris / Calais / Geneva / Cannes / Nice / Italy / Geneva / Spain, etc...

Book T.G.V. in advance either at station or at a travel agency for same price.

Tourist season and rail strikes tend to clash. This is no coincidence. Otherwise, train service is generally reliable and punctual.

Before you board the train insert your ticket in the automatic "ticket punch" known as le composteur , a vertical orange-coloured column at the entrance to the platform. Failure to composter > kohnposteh < can be expensive. Allow four + hours by TGV from Marseille to Paris, (compared with three by air, including the trip to and from airports).

Avoid, if possible, national Holidays, week-ends astride June-July July-August, and August-Sept; also July 14 and August 15 week-ends, when "the whole of France" is on the move.

Reservations, bookings, and ticket confirmation may be made at any authorised travel agency, or at the Air France agency : 2, rue Aude. To avoid waiting, plan to do this early in the day : 8:45 am - 9:00 am. Most agencies are open on Saturday mornings until noon.
