    Rail strike

    Thank you for the replies. It is true that many trains are running and don’t forget to check out the bus. We’re planning to take a night bus from Cahors to Paris. We were completely blindsided by this week’s vacation for the French... and many of them were too. After being closed out of a...

    suggestions for Figeac to Paris?

    suggestions for Figeac to Paris?

    Thanks - most helpful. We are now considering that if we arrive on the 17th in Figeac, we could hop on the train on the 18th and spend that day/night in Cahors, then back to Paris on the 19th from Cahors. Otherwise if we arrive later in Figeac, we might head to Paris directly from there. Given...
