TGV to Marseille

There seems to be no train from Paris CDG to Marseille when I went to www.voyages-sncf.com. I thought there was or am I doing something wrong? If there isn't, what's the best way to get into Marseille....go first to gare de lyon?

Thanks.

Bonjour Joy,

Merci copain1,

I don't know what I am doing wrong. I entered Aeroport CDG2 TGV in the Départ and Marseille St Charles under Arrivée and then it says :
Nous avons plusieurs propositions pour la ville de départ et/ou d'arrivée que vous avez saisie. Vous pouvez consulter nos propositions grâce au lien ou choisissez ici. Merci

I am definitely doing something wrong.

Hi J,

Are you entering Roissy (95) as your departure point?

You have use precise wording for the departure station. On the French version of the SNCF site enter either Roissy or Aeroport CDG 2 TGV. On the English version enter Airport CDG TGV.

Or see the timetables at www.bahn.de. Enter Aeroport Paris-Charles de Gaulle TGV.

There are six direct TGVs and two that require changing to another TGV in Lyon.

JoyC,

You are NOT doing anything wrong. Getting that message is normal. The program wants you to pick from a dropdown list for both your departure point and your arrival point and then pick a specific station from each list.

Hi Tim,

I am in the French site of SNCF and for departure I have entered Aeroport CDG 2 TGV and it still gave me that message that I have previously italized.

Thanks Tim, I did choose from the drop down menu [which added the (95) on CDG] but I didn't do it for the Marseille part since I was concentrating on the CDG part.

I was able to get the schedule as well as the prices now.

Thanks again.....now to figure out which correspond to the prems.

I just tried it. Just put in Roissy and you won't have to do anything else. It's equivalent.

Roissy(95) Marseille(13)

Below the Arrivée and départ fields you will see;

ou choisissez ici. That will help you input the correct station.

Et Voila.
