By train


The city is 3h away from Paris and 1h away from Lyon. You can purchase your tickets online on the official website of the French Railways, or via Trainline. The second site offers some interesting features, especially if you buy your tickets from abroad (in particular, you don't need to have a credit card with you when you withdraw your ticket in a train station)
