Taking the train from Florence to Paris

More than 550 miles separate the beautiful Tuscan city of Florence from the French capital of Paris, and while it may be quicker to fly, many people choose to travel this route by train. Not only is it a more eco-friendly way of travelling, Thello night train services mean you can go to sleep in Florence and wake up the next day in the centre of Paris.

The journey takes around 10 hours, and you’ll travel on a mixture of Trenitalia high-speed trains, the Thello sleeper train (if taking the journey overnight) and SNCF services if you change in France. You'll enjoy some scenic views along the way, having the option to travel First Class and enjoy extra legroom as you admire the magical views of Italian and French landscapes.

You'll arrive right in the heart of Paris at the Gare de Lyon, a short metro ride away from all the big sights and landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, and the fashionista paradise of the Champs Elysées. Keep reading to find out more about this Italy to France train adventure.
