Is it realistic to take a day trip from Nice to Provence? The train time and driving time seem to be about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Has anyone done this? Please advice.
Provence is a large area. Which cities or towns are you interested in seeing?
We were in Nice for five days last October. We took a day tour with a tour company (Med-Tours). It was their all-day tour and it took us up to the medieval towns of Gourdon, St. Paul de Vence, and others. You could easily drive from Nice up to St. Paul and stay there. It was quite beautiful.
