How to get to Limoges by train from Paris  

In Paris you will land at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport.

From there you must take a taxi (50 euros) or the metro (RER B). If you have heavy luggage, we recommend that you take a taxi.

There are several train stations in Paris. You want to go to PARIS-GARE D'AUSTERLITZ. You must count, from your scheduled arrival in Paris Airport, a minimum of 3 hours to get to the train station (customs + lines + transportation).

Train tickets can be purchased online at RailEurope in English or in French directly on the SNCF website (French National Railroad Company).

If you book your train ticket on the SNCF website, you will have, once in the train station, to go to the ticket window and show the exact same card that was used to purchase the ticket online.

Another solution is to buy your ticket upon arrival in the train station. There are multiple trains to Limoges every day.
