  1. It is easy to travel by train from Lille to Avignon. This journey from Flanders to Provence covers over 900 km, but it can be done on a comfortable high-speed TGV train in little more than four hours. The route is a great transect across France from north to south. If we have any doubts, it is merely that the train often travels too fast to really gain any appreciation of the passing landscape. But this is high-speed travel of the kind that showcases France’s sustained commitment to advanced railway engineering.

    For the cheapest fares, book when tickets are first released for sale. That’s normally three months prior to travel, but for journeys in the peak summer season bookings may open four months or even longer in advance.

    Lille to Avignon TGV

    Five TGVs run each day directly from Lille Europe to Avignon TGV station. The latter is not the city centre station in Avignon, but a dedicated new station for high-speed trains south-west of the city. A regular local train takes five minutes for the link from Avignon TGV to Avignon Centre.

    Trains from Lille to Avignon TGV make three to four intermediate stops. The route tracks south from Flanders through Picardie, before skirting the eastern suburbs of Paris. Then it’s south through Burgundy to the Rhône Valley where all trains stop in Lyon before the fast run south to Avignon.

Child and youth passengers

The definition of "Child" and "Youth" varies by country and rail operator. This is why we ask for the age of young passengers.

Sometimes children below a certain age can travel without a seat for free. If you want to guarantee a seat for child passengers, enter '6' as the age of the child.
