trying to get to istres

by mavl


trying to get to istres by train from barcelona. since there doesn't seem to be an active istres forum, thought i'd ask here at nimes since it's the major city before istres. assuming i get to nimes from barcelona by train, is there a train that can take me straight to istres? if not, what's the nearest train station to istres that i should try to get to? other suggestions as to how to get there are most welcome.

travel period is 2nd week of october.

merci beaucoup!

Yes, there are trains but you will have to change at least once.

Takes from 1h 12m, depending on train, costs 13.50 euro.

will give you train times, details and fares. In French, but easy to work out.

will give you train times and detials in English, but no fares.

Don't search for an October's too far ahead. Search for the same day of the week, but in the next few weeks. Fares and times are unlikely to change much, if at all.

You have picked a difficult route to obtain accurate information about !

Getting from Barcelona to Nimes will indeed mean an 8 hour plus journey with a change of train. And then reaching Istres is yet another conundrum. Presumably a bus runs this service?
I see that you can take a regional train from Marseille to Istres that follows the coast via Martigues. That would be a nice journey one day ! But Marseille may be inconvenient for yourself.

For your interest you can look at the regional train information for LANGUEDOC (across the border from Spain as far as Nimes etc)

or for the region east of Languedoc, the regional trains are shown here :

I think this route needs to be explored further !! It is not as simple as it looks, as you have discovered already.
By the way, have you looked at the EUROLINES site in case this gives any alternative coach routes?

I just had a chance to look again and although there may be other routes, this one 'may' be best :

BARCELONA-ESTACIO DE FRANCA to MONTPELLIER 08.45 arive 13.22 (Catalan Talgo)

MONTPELLIER -S to MIRAMAS 15.30 arrive 16.44 (French Regional RER line Montpellier-S to MARSEILLE-ST-C)

MIRAMAS to ISTRES by train on Miramas - Marseille via Rognac & Pd Bouc line 7 ) 17.05 arrive ISTRES at 17.13

Travel Tips for Nîmes


by LoriPori

This Roman Temple has been known as the MAISON CARREE, since the sixteenth century. In old French, any rectangle with four corners was referred to as a "carree'". The only completely preserved Roman temple, the Maison Carree has harmonious proportions, elegant slender columns with Corinthean capitals and architectural decoration of great finesse.
In a raised position on a high base, it dominated the forum of the Roman town. This large square, forming the centre of public life, was enclosed by a portico, traces of which remain in the form of a few bases of columns visible at the site.
Inside is an exhibition on the history of the Temple.

Pont du Gard

by Pierre_Rouss

Pont du Gard
This ancient roman viaduc is still standing after 2000+ years. Now the bridge exists about 300m long, 49m above of the river.
The hike is interesting, and you have to take a dive in the water upstream or downstream of the bridge.

Pont du Gard

by lotharlerch

The Pont du Gard - the most impressive part of the Roman aquaeduct bringing water to Nimes from the Cevennes is near the village Remoulins but since it is visited by almost all visitors of Nimes I mention it here as well. Find more pics and info on my Remoulins pages.

The Arena in Nimes is...

by AlfredSt

The Arena in Nimes is as beautiful as the most famous classical monuments in Italy. I did not know that the South of France possessed such magnificent relics. The Maison Carreé is a splendid replica of the Temple of Theseus in Athens and Rome has nothing better preserved.

On Monday, September 25, 2000 Hans, Wim and I toured NIMES which is in the province of "LANGUEDOC-ROUSSILLON" in southern France.
Nimes has several very well preserved Roman sites, such as the Roman Temple "MAISON CARRE" and the Amphitheatre "LES ARENES". Also it has an 18th century park, "THE JARDINS DE LA FONTAINE" on the northern edge of the city.
PONT DU GARD is the only remaining three-tier Roman Aquaduct in the world. The aquaduct is a spectacular structure.


On MondaySeptember 25, we visited the spectacular Pont Du Gard.


Here's Hans enjoying and exploring the Pont du Gard.
