I just read Moosehead post about driving to Southern France. I will be going with my church choir to go sing in Spain, Portugal and Lourdes in France. I will have 8 extra days to spare after our choir tour ends in Barcelona. My wife and I wanted to drive to South of France. It is easier to drive than take the train? Which is more cost effective? Should I just limit the places we want to visit? If we will drive, we plan to stop to Carcasonne first and then drive to Montpellier or maybe Nimes and make it the center of our trip? should I just stay in Arles instead or a much smaller town? We also want to go to Nice to visit surrounding towns. From Nimes we want to visit Montpellier, Sete, Pont du Gard, Arles, Aix en Provence etc. Will I have enough time or am I biting more than I could chew? Any suggestions from experienced travellers? Thanks in advance and blessings to all for helping this newbie.
