From Paris to Lake Geneva
We use a regional train to travel from Paris to Burgundy, then continue via Lyon to Geneva. The classic line south from Paris (via Sens and Dijon) which we describe here is dubbed the Paris-Lyon-Méditerranée (PLM) route. PLM was the company which introduced to the route such celebrated luxury trains as the Côte d'Azur Rapide and Le Train Bleu - names which evoke the romance of travel in a bygone age.
