Subject: Re: Paris-Nice-Toulouse
Howard, Check for flights from North America to France (there are plenty that leave in the morning) and for flights between Paris and Nice.

The least expensive airfare for Paris-Nice (one way this month) I found is $177. The equivalent TGV fare is $112 so it depends on how you would like to spend your time. Flying between the two cities will probably occupy at least 4 hours (getting to the airport, waiting, boarding, waiting for luggage, etc. etc.); the train is 6 hours. Personally, I always choose the rails because train travel is a way to slow down, but this is a personal choice. You have to love train travel. An added bonus for you is that you can buy food and wine in Paris and enjoy it on the train.
