How to get to the city

Bergerac to the north and Toulouse to the south
(33) 5 53222525
From Bergerac to Agen:
The only practical way into Bergerac, about three miles away,
is by taxi.
If you are driving, there is no need to go into town as the airport is just under three miles to the south of Bergerac.
Follow signs for the N21 south. This single-carriageway road is reasonably quick and the 50 miles takes no more than one-and-a half hours.
The N21 comes into the north-east of Agen.
The rugby ground, signposted as Parc des Sports, is in the south-west part of town.
From Toulouse-Blagnac to Agen:
Toulouse is France's fourth biggest city and therefore a better base for those looking to turn their rugby weekend into a city break.
Rail Get into Toulouse via one of the regular shuttle buses then head to the SNCF railway station to the west of town.
There are regular train services to Bordeaux via Agen, with the journey lasting about one -and-a -quarter hours.
Road Take the A62 peage (toll motorway) north, signposted for Bordeaux. The 56-mile route passes by the south-east quarter of Agen. The journey should take about one-and-a-quarter hours.
