Rail Holidays in France

A holiday in France includes some of the country’s most notable destinations.

Visit Paris, the country’s capital city and cultural haven, and its must-see monuments and attractions like the Louvre Museum featuring the Mona Lisa, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Eiffel Tower offering panoramic views of the city from three different viewing platforms. Make an excursion to historic Normandy or to Versailles to see the ornate palace including the spectacular Hall of Mirrors. Travel south to Avignon, picturesque Provence or Nice aboard the TGV, France’s high-speed train.

Make France your sole destination with a French tour like Wonderful France or Paris & the French Riviera. Or, combine a French holiday and travel aboard Europe’s sleek trains with stays in neighbouring countries like Switzerland, Holland, and Italy for a well-planned multi-country holiday.
