TGV, the ‘Train à Grande Vitesse’ is the fastest way to travel to more than 1400 destinations in Europe. With record-breaking speeds of up to 320 km/h, whether your destination is on the other side of France or beyond the borders you’ll reach it in just a few hours, and with magnificent views of the French countryside. The electric, high-speed TGV, operated by SNCF, transports over 130 million passengers to their destinations every year. The is second only to Japan’s Shinkansen train. France is, quite rightly, very proud of its bullet train service!
