Train Dijon → Lausanne
Duration 2h01 - From $76
Pardon me, but we ask you don’t pass on Dijon This word "Dijon" conjures up the image of a pseudo-sophisticated old man in the back of a limo, asking a passerby if he has a certain mustard. Get this out of your head. The historic capital of the Burgundy region will allure and captivate all of your senses, just like a fine Dijon mustard. Use your France Rail Pass, or Eurail France-Switzerland Pass and easily arrive into Gare de Dijon-Ville from Paris, Lyon or Lausanne in less than two hours thanks to the high-speed TGV. A few blocks from the rail station is the Dijon tourist office at 15 Cour de la Gare near place Darcy. Here you can get information and a brochure on where to pick up the "Owl's Trail." This self-guided tour brings you to most tourist sites in Dijon. The route is marked on the sidewalk by brass tiles featuring a little owl. When you come to a point of interest there is a number marked on the ground. Look up the number in your brochure for more information on that particular sight. (All cities should work like this.)

An enlightening city in Switzerland Inhabited since the Stone Age, Lausanne majestically sits on the shores of sparkling Lake Geneva. A mecca for romantic writers (Lord Byron) and enlightenment thinkers (Voltaire) the lake has also drawn its fair share of expats and entertainers (Sophia Loren, Charlie Chaplin) thanks to its air of elegance and grace. And while it retains a level of sophistication, today's Lausanne is more a hotspot for sports enthusiasts and the Olympic spirit. No wonder the International Olympic Committee has its headquarters here along with the official games' museum. Housing permanent and temporary exhibits totaling more than 10,000 pieces, it's the largest archive of its kind in the world. You'll find true works of art here as well, including sculptures by Rodin and a kinetic art piece by Swiss sculpture Jean Tinguely. If you have the spirit of the games, then this museum is pure gold. Nestled in the Lavaux and La Cote Wine region, the city of Lausanne is the fifth largest in Switzerland. With what might be the most efficient rail service in Europe, you can see the other big cities : Lucerne and Zurich in just over two hours. Geneva in only 40 minutes. But don't rush off just yet. The train will do that part, and you can sit back and relax with your Swiss Travel Pass. Learn more about Lausanne

"Everything was great ! It was comfortable, convenient and in full accordance with the schedule. Just one rather minor problem I faced - I could not download and print our tickets at home so we had to receive printed tickets by regular mail. It was not a problem since we had enough time, but it was a bit oddly becuse most of tickets I printed at my home printer. "
