Getting to:

MS Daniele Barge

Getting to Besancon where the MS Daniele barge is docked

Make arrangement to fly to CDG (Charles De Gaulle) airport in Paris. You may choose to arrive on May, 17, get to Besancon on the same day, spend a night at a hotel and visit Besancon during the day on May 18th before you board the barge. If you arrive early on May 18, you can get to Besancon on the same day.

The best route from CDG airport to Besancon is by train. Most trains from the airport take around 5 hours to get to Besancon. If you enjoy a longer train ride, this is the way to go.

If you prefer getting there more quickly, we suggest taking a 30 minute taxi ride from the airport to the train station called, “Paris Gare de Lyon”. From there you can get to Besancon in around 3 hours for about the same price.

We highly recommend you make a train reservation as soon as you book your flight.
