In June I am spending a week in Barcelona before we come to France. I know I want to end up in Paris but I have NO idea where in France to go before. I'm looking for a city that I won't need a car and is a train ride away from Barcelona. Any suggestions??
I was interested in maybe a wine town...loved Tuscany last year. So I looked at Provence but from what I am understanding there isn't really one area there large enough to fill 4 days (with maybe a hired tour one day)but small enough to do by foot. I seem to be reading that you really need a car to drive village to village. I also read it isn't easy to get there from Barcelona. *sigh* So I am lost and don't know where to go.
Also, what is the most convenient and fun area of Paris to stay. We tend to like the more artistic/bohemia areas..
THANK YOU in advance :)
