Hello, do you speak French?

You can use this site to reserve in advance. Look for PREM tickets as they are the cheapest.

Hi ayin and welcome to my city you will love it!
If you don't mind getting up early, every Saturday a slow train (TER) leaves Dijon at 5h45 and get to Paris Bercy (not gare de Lyon) at 8h44. Return at 7.20pm arr 10.14pm in Dijon. Tariff is 15€ return. You can buy it at Dijon station or SNCF shops (that is why we cannot find it on the SNCF website)
If you can read French

De Dijon à Paris
Le conseil régional de Bourgogne et la SNCF vous proposent un aller-retour à 15 € de Dijon à Paris le samedi * pour profiter pleinement de la capitale à prix mini.
Les billets sont en vente en gare Dijon-Ville, dans les boutiques SNCF de Dijon et les gares de Beaune et Montbard.
* Cette offre n'est valable que pour ce trajet aller/retour en 2ème classe, sur train TER, avec les horaires indiqués ci-dessus : Les horaires sont modifiés :
- départ de Dijon le samedi à 5h46 (arrivée gare de Paris-Bercy : 8h44)
- départ gare de Paris-Bercy à 19h20 (arrivée à Dijon : 22h14
Tout billet acheté n'est ni remboursable, ni échangeable.

Enjoy your stay!

You may want to buy a Carte Jeunes that gives you i think 50% discount on many trains though there is some kind of black out period a few busier times a week.

Great deal and if i were in Dijon for 4 weeks i would certainly take the train to Paris or other places more than once.

Buy it at the train station - photo required i think - anyone under 26 is eligible - and i believe you may get 25% or even 50% off on international trains from France - like into Switzerland.

coco cherie - by your photo on your site myhomeindijon.com you look like you may be under 26 - do you use the Cartes Jeunes then?
