Is any overnight train form Figueres to Paris?

I got nearly whole day and one night to work my way to Paris from Figueres, not sure that I could get a local train across the border, then find another train to Paris or should I take a trip back to Barcelona and get the train direct to Paris.

Do you know the cost?

Is overnight train safe for Solo female traveller?

any tip and advice?

The Ellipsos is direct from Figueras to Paris Austerlitz.
It leaves at 10.47 pm and arrives at 10.14 am. Reservation is compulsory.

There is another train leaving Figueras at 7.30 pm but you have to change at the border(and wait 1 h 40 min for the connection). It arrives at 7.27 am at Paris Austerlity.

Cost varies widely from €42 to €150 depending on whether you get PREM's or not.

Personally I would not travel solo overnight.

You could take a train from Figueras to Montpellier at 10.35 am, then the TGV to Paris Gare de Lyon. You'd be in Paris at 5.49 pm. Faster than the night train !

Hi Pvoyageuse,

Thank you so much for your advice, the last option might be the best. I didn't book any accommodation for that night, but I will find it. Do you know that I have to book TGV in advance or just go to get the ticket when I'm at Montpellier? and do you know the cost of TGV?

I'd book the whole trip in advance, not just the Montpellier-Paris leg. You can do it in Figueras as well.
As indicated, cost depends on whether you can find PREM's or not. See www.sncf.com.
