Travelguru Paul Gogarty says:

Travelling by train offers many advantages over flying; not least because the journey actually feels like part of the holiday. These well balanced itineraries offer the opportunity to learn a great deal about the area you are visiting through a series of excursions accompanied by a knowledgeable tour manager. All in all, it’s a relaxing and easy way to discover different parts of France


Provence, a region immortalised in countless films and books, conjuring up images of sleepy villages, boules, rustic cuisine and robust wines. It is also a region that boasts some of the best preserved Roman sights in the world, beautiful cities with world class museums and stunning scenery including rich vineyards and fragrant olive and peach groves. See it all on this 6 day tour travelling by Eurostar and TGV trains.
