From Lyon, take the A6 towards Paris, exiting at Macon Sud for the N79 highway and subsequently onto the D979 road. The circuit is signposted from there.
# By train : from Paris Bercy to Nevers, which takes about one hour and 45 minutes. However, there is no public transport from the train station to the circuit, with a taxi being the only option.
Air Connections : The region does not have its own airport (there is the Nevers-Fourchambalt airport, but for charter flights only) and the nearest international airports are the two in Paris: Paris Charles de Gaulle and Pari Orly intl. airport. Many properties near CDG airport and Orly hotels offer a free shuttle.
These two airports have the best international flight connections, but for those coming from within Europe will also be able to use the international Airport in Lyon.
