Potential Route around France

by nutmegmjp

I know it is early, however, as solo travel went very well this year, am thinking I would like to see France next May (3 weeks). Would like to start in Paris (5 nights?) and also go south to Provence. Also would like to maybe take the train to the Friedschafen area in Germany for 2 days to visit family. How to accomplish that and what city should I fly out of at the end.
In to Paris out of Frankfurt???
In to Paris out of Marseilles? Nice? Lyon??
Which would be the best option? Thanks for any advice.

You will get lots of ideas and suggestions here. My suggestion is from Paris go through and stop at Chartres, then spend some time in the Loire Valley and the great chateaus there. I would not miss Avignon, Arles and the Pont du Gard in Provence. I have not been to Marseilles, Nice or Lyon but would love to see especially Marsielles. Your options are pretty open on flying out of any but Frankfurt may be the biggest and may have the most options. Have a great time.

As for Paris-Provence, the wonderful confortable TGV will get you from Paris to Avignon for instance in about three hours, no need to hassle with airports etc! You can leave straight from the center and roll agreeably along watching the landscape from the windows. There are a lot of flights from Marseilles, you will probably easily find a flight to the most convenient airport in Germany from there, so you could do Paris - Provence by train then fly from Marseilles to Germany...May is a good time too - have fun!

Agreed forget airports, the tgv is cheap, comfortable and hassle free by comparison from Paris Nord station. Avignon is a must, Marseilles is Not too great with respect to some of the other local spots, I would recomend 2 days in Avignon and then get back on the tgv to Nice. Nice is a wonderful city along a stunning coast between Cannes and Monaco with an abundance of inland villages st Paul d vence, mougins, Valbonne, nice is more affordable to stay in a a local train runs along the coast linking other places. Nice also has lots of budget airlines out! I would recomend this, I know France very well, live not fr from Nice and fly a small aircrft all over France! Enjoy!

Thank you all for your ideas. I am a huge fan of the train as opposed flying around a country from centre to centre. Does anyone know if there is an efficient way to get from the the south of France to south of Germany near Bodensee/Lake Constance without going through Switzerland or all the way back to Paris. I though I would start in Paris (daytrip to Reims maybe), then head south (counter clockwise)ending up in Provence and the south, maybe to Marseilles/Nice and then up to Dijon, Strasbourg and then fly back to Canada from Frankfurt. Want to see family for 2 nights at most maybe either in the middle or the end of trip, but don't want to spend more time on train than necessary.

you can take a look at my page on france. some of the towns i have something on have been listed in some of the replies. i was last in france 22 years ago.
a lady friend and i worked and traveled in france every summer for ten years.
we began in 1977. from what i hear most of the small towns and villages have changed very little in the last 30 years.

Travel Tips for Paris

General observations

by geffer321

My first trip to Europe was in 1990. Before leaving home I had made up my mind that I would not like French people or Paris. Boy, was I wrong. After spending three days in the City I found it exceptionally beautiful and entertaining. I was treated very well by the French poeple. I have returned several times.

The superb Musee D'Orsay

by jrs1234

It's definitely worth your while spending time checking out some art at the excellent Musee D'Orsay. If your time is limited and you know you love Impressionist painting, go there first! The paintings are just amazing, and the building (a converted railway station) is cool too. This place is definitely somewhere I'll visit on every trip to Paris.

A must for Van Gogh fans in particular - the collection of works here is small but first-class - and there are many other famous artists represented here as well.

A museum card is highly recommended if you're paying a visit - you get to skip the main queue for tickets. If you don't have one, adult entrance is 7 Euros, and don't forget it's closed on Monday. There's late opening on Thursday evenings.

For more information, check out the excellent museum website at www.musee-orsay.fr.

Jack and the Beanstalk

by Jenniflower

This creative piece is found as you exit Sleeping Beauty's Castle. There are some children's rides nearby and then you go into one of the four other sections of the Park: Frontierland, Adventureland, Fantasyland or Discoveryland.

Keep the volume down, and be reserved.

by Aeg007

I lived in Paris for 3 months while studying. The Parisians are not the stereotypical snobs that they are made out to be, but they are people from a major city that is constantly barraged by heavy tourist traffic. I had plenty of Parisians who were very nice and helpful when I needed directions or help. Think of them like New Yorkers, but more European. They tend to keep to themselves. Unlike in many places in the US, they will very rarely engage strangers in any sort of contact or conversation if there is no reason to. They are not going to smile at you on the métro. (I am speaking for public places like the métro, the streets, etc. Bars, clubs, etc are where you may meet and socialized with locals)

Also, they speak much quieter than people do in the U.S. This is most noticeable is when you are on the métro. If you are traveling with others, take a moment and notice the volume level in the train. The train itself may screech on the tracks, but, for the most part, the Parisians speak barely above what we americans would consider a whisper. If you are yelling and being significantly louder than the rest of the train, expect some annoyed stares. Do your best to keep your voices down, and you will find that you fit in much better, and have a more pleasant experience.

Packing...

by CandS

Take a good backpack because there is little doubt you will have to walk a bit with your bags... Also take a small backpack for day trips and some padlocks to keep sticky fingers out of your bags... :) Good walking shoes are a must!! Take a tripod for the wonderful night photos you can take...you'll be happy you did! :)
