Marseille to Biarritz by direct train and stops in between

Hello

Is there a direct train from Marseille to Biarritz?

Since it is a long trip we would like to make one stop for one night. Where do you suggest?

We then want to visit San Sebastian and Bilbao.

After this we are going towards Bordeaux.

Thank you

There is no direct train coverin the whole route. I would suggest that as one of the places where you will have to change trains is Toulouse, which is an interesting, historic and attractive city, that might make a good overnight stop.

No, there's no direct train. East-west train routes in France can be problematic. Go through Toulouse, a charming and historic city. There are other choices, more complicated,but that's your best bet.

It might make more sense to make your way to Spain first, perhaps Barcelona and then get a train from up there to San Sebastian/Bilbao and then Biarritz and then Bordeaux.

I agree that Toulouse is worth a stopover. You have to change trains there anyway.

Check train times for a non specific date at www.voyages-sncf.com or www.capitainetrain.com - reservations are required for most trains and become available 90 days before travel., The sooner you book the cheaper it will be but the very cheapest tickets are non refundable etc if you change your minds or don't travel.

From Biarritz to San Sebastian then Bilbao by train it is very straightforward - check the item across to the right under 'Top Questions' for the details.
