I really hope you can help me! I need to book a trip for my parents from Milan to Lourdes in October. They are both very sick and I see there are many trains to change. I managed to find a direct train from Milan central to Paris Montparnasse and a Paris gare de Lyon to Lourdes but I can't find scheduels for Montparnasse to Gare de Lyon, plus, my father had serious movement troubles and I wished I could find a shorter or more direct way of getting there.
He suffers from a rare syndrome and cannot take planes..

PLease, anyone can help me?

Bus? Sep 20, 2008

Hi, have you considered a trip by bus? It must be less time-consuming - and probably cheaper - than passing from Paris. I think you can find specialised tour operators offering a direct Milan-Lourdes route. Good luck!

Milano - Nizza - Toulouse - Lourdes Sep 20, 2008

Hi Francesca,

A few years ago I went to Lourdes with my mum. We took a train in Cannes in the morning and arrived in toulouse at 4PM where we took a train to Lourdes.

Maybe you should check whether your parents can go from Milano to Nizza and take the train for Toulouse from there. If I remember well, there were several trains a day going from Toulouse to Lourdes.

Hi Francesca

I'm so sorry to hear about your parents. Here's the link of a Milan based company that connects Lombardy to Lourdes. It's called Unitalsi (Unione Nazionale Italiana Trasporto Ammalati a Lourdes e Santuari Internazionali).
Phone 02.4121176

This is the section for Lombardy:

via Labus, 15
MILANO 20147 (MI)
tel. 02 - 41 21 176
fax. 02 - 41 27 14 97
sito internet

And here you can find the dates: (the link shows the dates of 2007, but in the webpage the dates are for 2008. There are some dates have a departure from Brescia too).

I really hopes it helps. I will keep you in my thoughts.
