Traveling throughout Europe by train is a dream for many travelers, but almost nowhere is it more convenient, comfortable and cost-efficient than in France. Let’s take a look at the basics of traveling through France by train.

French Train Basics

The French rail network, SNCF (Société Nationale des Chemins de fer français), has several different networks that work together to get travelers where they’re going.

The TGV (Train à Grande Vitesse) is the super-fast train network with stops in major and second-tier cities. These lines get you to where you’re going, toute suite! The network also includes international rail lines, like the Eurostar from the UK, the Lyria from Switzerland, and Artesia trains from Italy.
