Transportion Information

The Paris Roissy Charles De Gaulle (CDG) is the closest international airport to Tours.  The most convenient travel option from the airport to Tours is by train, but several car rental services are also available at the airport.  If traveling from elsewhere in Europe, TGV trains or the Eurostar may also be an option.

 

Transportation From the Airport

TGV and Thalys trains run from the TVG station at Terminal 2.  Terminals 1, 2, and 3 are linked by the CDGVAL airport metro line, so it is easy to travel from one terminal to another.  There is an SNCF desk on the fourth floor of Terminal 2 for public transportation inquiries.  Trains run from the Charles De Gaulle airport to Gare Saint-Pierre-des-Corps approximately six times a day en route to Bordeaux.
