Marseille to Lyon - Drive or TGV?

Jump to last reply

Hi,

At the end of a 4 week south-of France holiday in October my husband will be taking our children to the UK for the weekend to visit family, departing from Marseille and meeting me back in Paris for our flight home. We will be staying in Bonnieux, and I'll take them to Marseille airport for a morning flight.

I'd like to have a night in Lyon on my way back to Paris, and would also like to take the TGV.

Should I drive to Lyon on my own and leave our hire car there? Or leave it in Marseille, taking the train?

Is Marseille worth exploring on my own, or would Lyon be a better option?

Any recommendations for boutique style accommodation near the centre of Lyon?

It looks like the TGV ticket bookings are not open earlier than 3 months before the date, is that right?

Any ideas for my couple of days of 'family free' time in France would be appreciated!

Thank you :-)
