You start in Vézelay, about 250 km southeast of Paris.
Travel to Vézelay requires both train and bus or taxi connections.
The fastest and easiest but most expensive routing is to take the TGV (high speed train) from Paris Gare de Lyon to Montbard, then take a taxi.
In the evenings, a bus connects Montbard with Vézelay (except on Sundays and holidays).
This train and bus journey totals 2.5 hours. There are many trains each day between Paris-Gare de Lyon and Sermizelles-Vézelay. A change of train is required plus a short taxi ride from the station to the town centre. This journey takes between 2.5 and 3.5 hours.

In between, contemplate gentle kilometres of walking, and a stellar line-up of accommodations.
