Train To Lourdes

by crb5918

I am an American wanting to travel on Friday May 14th from Toulouse to Lourdes via the train. I have not purchased any tickets for this journey or made a reservation. Can I just show up at the Toulouse train station and buy a ticket that day? Are the trains usually booked completely full & will I have any trouble getting on that day without an advanced reservation? Does the ticket cost more at the station on the day of departure? Thank you very much for your help...

Re: Train To Lourdes

by leics

Yes, you can just turn up at the station.

It is not really necessary to buy European train tickets in advance online at all, other than for sleeper/couchettes. Even reservation-only trains sell tickets right up to a few minutes before departure if there is availability, and there usually is (and, if not, there is usually another departure soon enough).

It can sometimes cost more though, if there are special online discounts, but these are never for all departures on all routes at all times on all days. I don't think there are any for your journey, but a charge of an extra euro or two for buying at ticket offices rather than ticket machines is not uncommon (can't remember whether this applies in France or not).

You can find train times and fares in French (easy to work out) here:

http://www.voyages-sncf.com/

Don't choose the English translation, because it will take you straight to Raileurope (a ticketing agency) which does not list all departures and charges commission on fares.

Toulouse>Lourdes takes about 2 hours, plenty of departures, journey time varying according to departure. Some departures require a change mid-journey. One-way fare is 25.10 euro.

I really do not think you will have any problems getting a seat, although the site does say 'reservation recommended' for the Intercities train.

You can buy tickets (and thus reserve a seat on such trains) right up to a few minutes before departure, but if you are worried why not pop into Toulouse station the day before you travel and buy your tickets then?

Re: Train To Lourdes

by cubsur

Some of the trains between Toulouse and Lourdes are TER (regional) trains on which seats cannot be reserved. As said above, reservation is only 'advised' for the Corail intercity trains, which you can board without. In the unlikely event of all seats being taken, you would have to stand for nearly two hours.

Jardins ouvriers

by Klod5

Au nord de Toulouse, au bord de la rivière Hers, on peut admirer une centaine de petits jardins, sagement regroupés. Ils sont tous équipés d'une petite maison, et sont admirablement entretenus par leurs locataires.
Il s'agit de Jardins Ouvrier, une institution en France.
Cela nous rappelle les "datchas" de la Russie...

To the north of Toulouse, very close to the Hers river, one can admire about hundred small gardens, wisely regrouped. They are all equipped of a small house, and are maintained admirably by their tenants.
It is about Gardens Worker, an institution in France.
It recalls us the "datchas" of Russia..

A sport the rugby

by Klod5

Un sport le rugby.
A l’origine de ce sport se trouverait une faute, commise par un certain W. W. Ellis, qui aurait saisi le ballon lors d’un match en 1823. Apparu dans les universités anglaises, le rugby s’est solidement implanté dans le Sud-Ouest de la France à partir des années 1920.

L'adage sonne fort et vrai. 15 titres de champion de France, quatre titres en Challenge Yves-du-Manoir, un titre de champion d'Europe...

Depuis plus de quinze ans, le club toulousain domine le rugby français, à l'images des Villepreux, Rives, Novès ou Skrela qui ont tant contribué à l'épopée toulousaine.
Le Stade toulousain est un club complet avec son centre de formation : l'esprit qui souffle aux Sept Deniers, l'antre du club, est celui d'une école : un art de pratiquer qui s'appuie sur un recrutement régional, une sélection rigoureuse dès le plus jeune âge et le respect d'un certain nombre de critères de jeu ; ici, le rugby est inscrit dans les gênes dès la petite école. Entrer au Stade, c'est entrer à l'académie du rugby. To the origin of this sport a mistake would be, committed by a certain W. W. Ellis, that would have seized the ball at the time of one match in 1823. Appeared in the English universities, the rugby became implanted solidly in the Southwest of France from the years 1920.

The adage sounds strong and true. 15 titles of champion of France, four titles in Yves-du-Manor Contest, a title of champion of Europe...

Since more of fifteen years, the club toulousain dominates the French rugby, to the pictures of the Villepreux, Rives, Novès or Skrelas that contributed to the epic toulousaine so much.
The Stage toulousain is a complete club with his/her/its center of formation: the mind that blows to the Seven Deniers, the cave of the club, is the one of a school: an art to practice that leans on a regional recruitment, a rigorous selection since the youngest age and the respect of a certain number of game criterias; here, the rugby is registered in the hindrances since the small school. To enter to the Stage, it enter to the academy of the rugby.

Toulouse déplacements

Le site Internet Toulouse Déplacements centralise toutes les informations relatives au trafic routier de l’agglomération toulousaine.

Il propose actuellement une information sur les conditions de circulation routière : restrictions et fermetures d’axes routiers pour travaux, les accidents, bouchons et autres incidents susceptibles de ralentir la circulation.

Fonctionnant actuellement sous forme expérimentale, le site devrait évoluer pour offrir à terme un service complet d’information sur les déplacements aux usagers, en présentant l’offre en matière de moyens de transports sur l’agglomération toulousaine ainsi que l’état en temps réel des réseaux routiers ou des transports collectifs.

The village of Conques

by Pierre_Rouss

The village of Conques
One other unavoidable stop in the Cathares region is this village built on a butte. Most crooked streets can eventually get you to the top after numerous detours. Great adventure for a whole day.
You will find a lot of interpretation site that might help you to understand who the Cathares were, what were their beliefs and why they were so persecuted up to their elimination.
