Are you landing at Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) or Orly Airport (ORY)?

If it's Charles de Gaulle, you have a train direct from the Airport at 21.16 which will get you into Lyon (Part-Dieu) at 23.24, and Lyon (Perrache) a few minutes later.

You should be more specific in your post title about your needs...that way you might have more answers.

'Help' os a bit vague.

For the best prices, book direct with the train operator immediately. Tickets go on sale 3 months before travel, and the cheapest tickets often sell out quickly. Prices keep going up as the travel date gets closer.

You can get train times and costs, and make bookings, in English at www.tgv-europe.com/en but use Antarctic as the "Ticket collection country" in the first screen to avoid being transferred to RailEurope, which has higher prices and does not list all the trains. For notes on online booking, see www.nickbooth.id.au/Tips/FrenchTrain.htm

The last train of the day to Lyon departs at 19h53. You could possibly make it if:

- your plane is not big and you are able to get through immigration control, pick up your luggage, pass through customs and be out of the airport before 19h00.

- you take a taxi to Gare de Lyon, 15-20min. if the traffic is not too bad.

There are not many direct flights between Paris and Lyon and none in the evening, most people take the train. It would be less stressful to stay overnight in Paris and go to Lyon by train in the morning.
