Hi seasoned travellers! I am hoping you can help with our first trip to France!
My soon-to-be husband and I are making plans for our honeymoon in France in October. This is what we know so far: we are staying in Paris Oct. 17- Oct. 21 and taking the train to Provence on the 21st. From there, we have until the early morning of the 27th when we fly out of Marseille. We are imagining a nice mix of markets, ruins, art, exploring villages, etc.
So, with 5 days (6 nights), where would you recommend we stay? Is it best to have one home base and explore from there? Would you recommend renting a car? Should we leave any time for Marseille?
Thanks so much for any input!
