Train travel

Is there tgv train from CDG to Dijon? Or to do we have to go into Paris from CDG?

Another leg of our journey would take us from Sarlat to Paris. What are the train connections for that?

Thanks for any and all help

Flandertwo,

Yes, it looks like there's a TGV from CDG to Dijon with a change in Lyon Part Dieu.

When traveling from Sarlat to Paris, you'd make a train change in Bordeaux.

You may check train schedules here:http://www.sncf.com/en/passengers

Hope this helps!

Hi flandertwo. Here is the website for French trains... It easily shows schedules and prices: http://www.sncf.com/en/passengers
If you type the word 'Paris' in the from box, it will show you a choice for CDG airport. However, note that if you board at the airport TGV (long distance) station, most or all of the options will take you via Lyon, which is out of the way, the trip will take you over 4 hours and also be more expensive. Suggest you also compare trains from Paris. By taking the RER (local) train into Paris, you can transfer to a less expensive, direct train to Dijon that only takes an hour and 35 minutes. Enjoy your trip!

Bob is correct!

It's definitely a better option to take the TGV from Paris Gare de Lyon to Dijon.

When I checked the French Railway website I just chose, 'Paris Roissy Charles de Gaulle Airport' & I didn't pay attention to the travel time.

The Air France shuttle bus goes to Gare du Lyon which might be convenient if slightly more expensive than taking the RER which is 10 Euros -- but requires a change to the metro or another RER.

There is one direct train a day from CDG to Dijon but it leaves at 7:58 p.m. (19:58). Travel time is 1:45. There is also one direct train to the airport per day. This came up on the sncf.com website, but in French, no en.

How to Look Up Train Schedules and Routes Online gives you the DB train schedule link and tips for using it. The DB search engine includes RER airport connection options when you request schedules to/from CDG airport. This is an example of why we recommend DB for almost all train schedule needs. The SNCF shopping cart doesn't have that feature, probably because they don't sell the RER tickets. (DB doesn't reflect the Air France bus option to Gare de Lyon, so that detail you do have to get from Janet or another source.)
