Paris-Barcelona now with the AVE high speed train

It will run a bit faster in the future but is up and running and with advance purchase can be very inexpensive.

I think it's worth pointing out that there have been high speed trains between Paris and Barcelona for some time. It's the fact that you don't have to change at Figueres any more i.e. it's a direct service, which is new.

No RM that is not correct. The fast line was only in France. Yes one could take the train journey all the way but as you said you had to change trains thus making the journey time longer

Anyway If have not seen it Man at Seat 61 has done the journey and reported here:
