One week in the south of France -- best use of our time

Jump to last reply

Hello! Trying to plan a trip to the south of France and the options are overwhelming! My schedule allows me to leave on a Saturday and fly back home the following Sunday. With that in mind:

- Does it make sense to fly into Barcelona and home from Nice? Pluses here are only two layovers on the way there (I live in Indianapolis, not a lot of direct flights), see a bit of Barcelona, start the trek through the south of France further west via rail. OR do we just fly in and out of Nice.

- While in the south of France, where should we focus? From what I have read the Provence region is gorgeous. Best towns? Is Monaco worth the trip? Anything on the Italian side of the border worth seeing?

Thanks!
