Hi - We'd love your insights on train travel... We are a family of four (two young children) and are planning to take the train from Paris to Aix-en-Provence at the beginning of August. Could you advise on (i) which train station? I notice on the TGV there is the "Aix-en-Provence TGV" station and the "Aix-en-Provence Centre" station. Is one station more convenient for travel from Paris?
We are also planning to travel with all our luggage from the US - 3 large suitcases. We will be in Paris for 6 wks prior to our trip to southern France (first Aix-en-Provence then Nice).
Will bringing large suitcases be difficult on the trains? Transporting btw train stations and the hotels? Do you suggest we simply find a place to house our suitcases in Paris during our trip to Southern France?
Thank you all so much!
