  2. To get to Marciac from the U.S. Fly Air Tahiti Nui from LAX, or Air France to Paris. Take the TGV (high speed train)leaving from La Gare Montparnasse to Tarbes, which is about 25 minutes south of Marciac.

  3. Looking forward to seeing the film Luigi. Marciac looks like such a beautiful place to have a jazz festival. Any information as to how to get to Marciac if one wanted to attend next year’s festival traveling from the United States?
