It is easy to travel by train from London to Verona. The journey starts with an afternoon Eurostar from London to Paris, or you can take an earlier Eurostar in order to spend some time in the French capital. You continue from Paris to Verona on an overnight train run by Thello. Arrival in Verona is just before eight in the morning.
If you prefer to travel by day from Paris to Verona, there is a feasible option from London on weekdays, but it does make for a very long day. Take the first Eurostar service to Paris, then a TGV from Paris to Turin, changing there onto a connecting Frecciabianca train to Verona.
London to Paris
The first part of the journey from London sweeps through Thameside landscapes and rural Kent to reach the Channel Tunnel. Little more than an hour after leaving London you'll already be in northern France, tracking south through Flanders fields towards Paris.
Remember to factor in at least half an hour for Eurostar's airline-style baggage check prior to boarding your train. There is a luggage and body scan and you'll be asked to show your passport. There are no restrictions on taking liquids on board Eurostar trains.
Paris interchange: Paris Nord to Paris Lyon
When you alight from the train at Gare du Nord look for signs to the Metro and RER. Once you've bought a ticket follow the signs to 'RER D', direction 'Melun' or 'Malesherbes'. So long as you're heading in the right direction, all the trains on this line stop at Gare de Lyon. The actual train journey takes around 10 mins with just one stop on the way at Châtelet-les-Halles. Upon alighting from the RER train at Gare de Lyon, follow the signs to the mainline station. The signs read 'Accès aux trains Grandes Lignes'. The whole journey from the concourse at Gare du Nord to the mainline departure platforms at Gare de Lyon will normally take about 40 mins but we recommend leaving at least 50 mins.
If you are arriving at Gare du Nord from London, bear in mind that you can buy Paris Métro tickets at the Eurostar terminal at St. Pancras and on board the Eurostar train. Similarly, passengers arriving at the Gare du Nord on Thalys trains from Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands can buy Metro tickets on the train (at the Thalys Bar). Although universally referred to as Métro tickets, they are in fact valid on RER trains too.
Paris to Verona (night train)
The Thello overnight train to Verona departs from Paris Gare de Lyon station. In the early hours, the train runs along the shore of Lake Geneva with lovely views of the Alps on a clear night. There is a wonderful moment in the morning when the train skirts the edge of Lake Maggiore. The only intermediate stop in France is at Dijon, where the train picks up passengers. The overnight run across Switzerland is non-stop. In the morning the train stops at Milan and Brescia before reaching Verona.
In Verona, you'll alight from the night train from Paris at Verona's main railway station, which is called Verona Porto Nuova. This station is located well south of the city centre - roughly a 20 minute walk from the main sights, but there are also regular buses leaving for the central area from just outside the station. The night train from Paris continues beyond Verona to Venice.
