Lost in France?

My travels are over for the season. After a hectic but enjoyable May, when a massive backlog of fixtures had to be cleared, players, officials and followers of local football can at last relax.

But the irony is that for many Welsh football followers, the travels of a lifetime are just starting. A veritable invasion of France is underway, with Welsh fans heading by train, boat, car and plane towards Bordeaux, the venue for Wales's first group game in Euro2016, against Slovakia on Saturday. Several Welsh football correspondents will be there, but I'm going to watch the games on television, and prepare to resume my travels in three weeks' time, when the Welsh clubs enter the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.

For those heading to Bordeaux, Lens and Toulouse for the Wales group games, having secured tickets and sorted travel and accommodation plans, there will still be a need to work out some finer details: how best to travel to the stadium ? What else is there to do while we're there? Where are the fan zones and best sports bars?

Fortunately, help is at hand. The fans won't have to find the tourist information centres, try to remember enough French or hope that English is spoken, because everything they need has been conveniently assembled on one website. GoEuro has a handy guide to each of the nine host cities, covering local information on transport, fan-zones and bars, and with links to useful tourist resources. There's even a handy city ranking, rating the cities on their attractiveness, affordability, accessibility and football cultures.

Anyone going - or already there - should have these links on their smartphone - it could make the trip smoother and even more enjoyable.
