General Info: Tel Enquiries: 08 92 35 35 35. €35* Euros return fare for the whole 63km. Shorter routes are possible (see the SNCF website for details).
Our recommendations: Although expensive for a family, there is some dramatic scenery here. The cost can be managed if you don’t go all the way. The best scenery is towards the Mediterranean.
For the children: 63km is a long way to sit on a train – don’t travel the whole distance and have a break part way along to make a day of it.
*Prices are approx, please check with the attraction before visiting.
