I am looking at travelling from Barcelona to Le puy - is the best path by train through Lyon? I have a eurail 8 pass so thinking eurail to Lyon and then to Le puy. In terms of accomodation I am not sure whether to carry a pack or luggage transfer - is it something I can decide along the way or best to lock in now? Thanks a bundle. I'm travelling solo & so want to make sure I have a plan! Any ideas are welcome:)

For various transport routes from Barcelona to Le Puy see www.Rome2Rio.com.

You need not arrange luggage/backpack transfer in advance; you can set it up on the trail.

Happy planning and Bon chemin!


SNCF site provides Renfe train from Barcelona to Nimes, Nimes to St Georges d'Aurac, SNCF Bus from St Georges d'Aurac to Le Puy. 9hrs34.

It might be more time efficient to go Barcelona to Lyon (5 or 6 hr) and Lyon to Le Puy (2hr20). Note you may have to make your way from Lyon Part Dieu to Lyon Perrache.
