Travelling to Provence
From North America the easiest way of getting to Provence is to
fly to Paris. From Paris (Charles de Gaulle Airport or downtown) there are
TGV fast trains direct to Avignon. This train journey takes about
three hours and there are trains every few hours. If you plan to
spend a few nights in Paris first, there are frequent TGV trains
from Paris Gare de Lyon to Avignon. Schedules can be seen
on the French Rail web-site
www.sncf.fr and tickets can be ordered from
www.raileurope.com/canada or Teachers Travel can order these
tickets for you.
Another possible way of getting to Provence is to fly to
Marseille and from here it is
just a half hour train ride to Avignon.
