TGV train to Paris

Do you know if the TGV train leaves from Monte Carlo for Paris or is Nice the closest station? How much luggage are you allowed to take on first class train travel.

I didn't personally take the train but when we were in Monte Carlo, I believe there was a train leaving from the station to Paris traveling through Lyon.

I don't remember for TGV, I think TGV starts in Nice

but you can take a local train from Monaco to Nice and take a TGV after.

the best is to check directly on the official website : http://www.tgv-europe.com/index.html

or http://www.sncf.com/

For anyone else looking at this thread, there is one direct TGV per day from Monaco to Paris. This runs on Mondays to Saturdays, leaving at 9.13 am (and coming from Ventimiglia).

To find the number of stops on any train, use this website reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en…

then click on 'more details' and then on the train number.

TGVs run at less than half the speed east of Marseille, as they're on a nineteenth century railway shared with other trains, rather than the brand new dedicated line from Marseille to Paris. That's probably why the jounrey time is more than you expected.
