Subject: Paris & Provence
Hi, Ziners... my husband and I are considering a combined trip next spring to Paris and Provence. I know there's a lot to see in both places, but we'd still like to see a little of Provence, and I just can't be that close to Paris and not go there. Our plan is to take the TGV from CDG to Avignon, and spend the next 3 1/2 days exploring the area -- probably Avignon, Aix-en-Provence, St. Remy, and Arles. We'll probably rent a car in Avignon, although my husband is a little leary of this, but I feel that it's the only way to explore Provence. After 3 1/2 days in Provence, we'll take the TGV back to Paris and spend the remainder of the time there. Has anyone taken a similar trip? I know the cities are close together, but how easy is it to drive into the cities?

Best regards, Sandy in Illinois
