We are planning to travel from Juan Les Pins to Avignon by train, and then from Avignon to Nice a week later, in September. What is the best process for buying train tickets. I noticed that I can buy them now on the website www.sncf.com. Or is it better to wait until we are in France and buy them at a station? I recall reading in a previous thread that you should select Antarctic as your country (we are in Canada) when buying the tickets on-line. Why is that?
Any other tips are appreciated.
Is first class worth the extra cost over second class?
