Paris to Provence honeymoon itenerary

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning our honeymoon to France and northern Spain, and we could use some advice on our itinerary. We would like a mixture of sightseeing and relaxing; neither of us have ever been to France, so we want to see the major sights, but we don’t want to run ourselves ragged jumping from place to place the entire trip. In general, we are pretty comfortable going off the beaten path, though neither of us speaks French (I have the basics from Pimsleur). We are in our early 30s and are most interested in historical sites (love the idea of seeing Roman ruins, etc.); we are not at all nightlife/club people. Roughly speaking, we were thinking to spend 1 week in Paris, 1 week for Provence (including possible stopover in Dijon or Lyon) and 1 week in Spain. The first draft of our itinerary is below, and we would be very thankful for any advice or insights you can provide!

Fly in to Paris, spend 1 week (including day trip to Versailles)

Train to either Lyon or Dijon (or somewhere else along the way?). Thought it might be nice to spend a few days here before getting a car to drive to Provence region. Time to recover from sightseeing in Paris and relax. Thoughts on which city would be better? Lyon looks to have some interesting ruins, but Dijon may be more laid back?

Drive to Provence, possibly base ourselves in Arles or Avignon? How many days would we need to do justice to this region? We would like to see the ruins in Nimes and the Pont du Gard, and possibly also do a little exploring in the countryside. Again, interspersing some sightseeing with soaking up the country and sitting in cafes.

Train/car to Barcelona to begin Spain portion of trip
