Visiting France

Ideally located, Lyon is only 2 hours away from the south coast of France and to the Alps, making it easy to reach the coast and all the major ski resorts.

In about 2 hours you can equally reach all the main cities and areas of interest in France.

Price of transport varies according to whether you choose to fly or to travel by train, but it is relatively easy to find good deals on-line or by booking in advance.

If you decide to travel by bus, costs are reduced consistently. However, it will take you longer to reach your destination.

A few examples:

- 50-70€ one-way train ticket Lyon-Paris with a 12-25 train pass. About 2hrs travel time.
- 25-30€ one-way bus ticket Lyon-Paris. About 6-7 hours travel time.
