In France Trains are not secure even in 1st class There are very few security guards in train stations and trains - so be very careful and vigilant. Many thieves in trains and train stations in France

TGV Bordeaux-Paris in a short 2 hours 10 minutes - a fast 180-200 miles/hr does not feel uncomfortable, train is on time, comfortable, fast, clean, even the food is decent. If only we had trains like this in the US

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy
Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois
de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make

You take the Gare du Lyon escalator going down and get on line RER-D, which goes direct. You may also take the Metro but there is a transfer. If you are in a bind, a cab would be your best bet. It should cost around 13€
