Finally. After years of work, the connection between France and Spain will be completed on December 19. The TGV in Paris will start selling tickets from Paris to Figueres (Girona) tomorrow. The final leg of the journey between Figueres and Barcelona is currently scheduled to be finished in 2012. In the meantime, the journey from Figueres to Paris (or vice versa) will cost riders between 54 and 110 euros for the 5 and a half hour ride.
The high-speed train from Figueres also goes to Perpignan and Montpellier. For those who wish to travel from Barcelona to Paris on the train, the connection is simple: take the train to Figueres and then make the connection. In approximately 7 hours get off the train in Paris!
