The France-Spain High Speed Train. High speed happiness.
What does the most popular travel destination in Europe and one of its geographically largest countries have in common? A singular great way to travel: the France - Spain High Speed train. SNCF and RENFE have combined their experience to offer the first high speed trains between France and Spain. This new SNCF-RENFE cooperation offers service between 17 cities in France and Spain including Paris, Lyon and Marseille to Barcelona, and Marseille to Madrid. It’s not just the great cities it connects that make it special, but how quickly it connects them. Go from Paris to Barcelona in just 6 hours, 25 minutes. Barcelona to Lyon takes just under 5 hours, and it makes Barcelona to Marseille possible in 4 hours, 17 minutes. On the France-Spain High Speed train, you can pirouette from Barcelona to Toulouse in just over 3 hours, or leave the bull behind going from Madrid to Marseille in 7 hours, 3 minutes.
Trains to Paris will be Euroduplex cars-- double-decker train cars traveling at almost 200 mph. Trains to Toulouse, Lyon & Marseille will be almost as fast, with refurbished wooden parquet and leather seats in 1st class.
Family-friendly economy class is also available. Regardless of train, you’ll find a power outlet near your seat, which seems most fitting. Not only will you have the opportunity to recharge the batteries of your electronics, but your own…with nothing to do but enjoy yourself, the passing landscapes, and the company. Book your France-Spain High Speed train ticket with Rail Europe. You’ll see it’s simply perfect, and perfectly simple.
