The French term for a high-speed train is “Train à Grande Vitesse,” or TGV. It is one of the most widely used modes of transportation in Fʀᴀɴᴄᴇ. There are two coach classes available on the present train: 2nd class, with comfortable seats set 2 by 2, and 1st class, with seats arranged 2 by 1.
A buffet car with a bar, bathrooms, a nursery area with a changing table for little children, electrical connections for charging devices, large panoramic windows, and free Wi-Fi on some trains are among the contemporary amenities and onboard services offered by the TGV. It is easy to go around because the stations are located in the middle of the city from where the trains depart and arrive.
Each tourist may bring two pieces of luggage in addition to a carry-on, and there are no tight baggage limitations. The top speed of this French bullet train is 320 kilometers per hour (around 186.5 – 199 mph). This enables quick connections between city centers, which accounts for the TGV’s popularity with tourists.
The TGV train lines travel to approximately 200 locations in Fʀᴀɴᴄᴇ alone, with the most well-known routes from Paris to Avignon, Paris to Lyon, Paris to Nice, and Paris to Marseille. Along with Sᴘᴀɪɴ, Iᴛᴀʟʏ, and Bᴇʟɢɪᴜᴍ, the railway links Fʀᴀɴᴄᴇ to a number of neighboring nations via well-traveled lines like Paris-Brussels, Paris-Barcelona, and Paris-Milan.
