Hi Forum Friends!
Traveling with a friend in Provence in Sept. (8-13)and have 5 short days to breeze thru Provence and exit via paris (for SFO). Sept 8 will be spent traveling from Zurich to???? Not sure where to take train to??? Nice, Avignon, AIX? I would like it to be fairly central so that we can rent a car with ease.
My questions are:
1. What town would it be smartest/quickest in Provence to get TO FROM Zurich …where we will have nearby access to rental car.
2. A good hub to see the surrounds…we could move once if necessary possible Itinerary suggestions?
3. what is the quickest/easiest/cheapest route to get back to Paris?
are there any speedy trains? (we might do best at the same station we rented the car from….so please keep in mind….
4. any not to miss itinerary suggestions for Provence? great boutique hotels that are somewhat affordable?
My deepest thanks in advance for your kind assistance.
