Help with Itinerary Paris, Nevers, Lourdes, Barcelona

Jump to last reply

A few months ago I had posted about a trip that my sis and I were planning for end of May, beginning of June. We had originally considered doing an organized tour thru Globus or Trafalgar, but after reading various trip reviews decided that it would not be a great fit for us given the early mornings and extensive bus rides. So now the plan is make the reservations ourselves and sign up for some organized day tours in the various cities. Here is what I have so far. I would be very appreciative for suggestions etc.

May 24 Depart for Paris
May 25-May 29 Paris (considering hotels close to the Louvre)
May 29--Depart Paris to Nevers via train--stay in hotel in Nevers with plan to visit sites related to St Bernadette--any other suggestions of what to do while in Nevers?
May 30--Depart Nevers to Lourdes France via train
May 31--Depart Lourdes to Barcelona via train
May 31-June 3--Barcelona

Am planning on booking all this thru one of the online websites on my own. I have called various travel agents in my town and have not gotten far. I suspect that there is no money to be made on a small trip like this and at this point feel like I need to get this organized quickly and hopefully do not make too many mistakes! Regarding train travel--i know that I can't book more than 3 months in advance, but is there a way to see the timetables so that I can plan which trains and what the timeframes are? Are there multiple stations that I could depart from in Paris? Also, am confused about how to book the trains as I keep reading that I will get redirected to raileurope if I indicate that I am a US customer? So any info about which website to use would be most appreciated. Also what about the train to Barcelona is that also TGV or something else? Thanks in advance for any suggestions etc.
