Subject: Re: Paris & Provence
Hi Sandy, We've rented cars in Europe for the last 10 years or so and have found it a great way to get around to small towns and villages that are not easily accessible by public transit. Driving in Provence is no problem, just remember that when you are on the highways, the French drive very fast.

If you plan to arrive by TGV in Avignon, you might consider Orange and Nimes for visits. They are both close to Avignon and can be managed in a day. You'll want to explore Avignon itself and that could easily take up one day. Lucy
