Provence & Tuscany transport options?

Jump to last reply

Since our planned summer road trip is no longer an option (due to work changes) I am planning a two week holiday through Provence & Tuscany and possibly Venice during mid June. My original thought was 5 nights in Provence, 5 nights is Tuscany/Florence & 4 nights in Venice. After reviewing everything I want to see in Provence I can't imagine pulling that off with what essentially boils down to three days on the ground, so... A week in Provence & a week in Tuscany it is! Is it worth tacking on 2 nights for Venice or is that better saved for another trip (long weekend/city break)?

I am shopping flight/train options from London to Provence & Florence. The Eurostar to Avignon is an option, especially since we are a straight shot on the tube into St Pancras. It is only slightly more expensive than a flight, but we wouldn't have to pay for parking for two weeks. I don't know that flying would be a ton faster either, between the drive & early check in. Any thoughts?

Travel between Provence & Florence -- as best I can tell taking the train between Lyon and Florence is the fastest option (for trains) at 10 to 11 hours, which seems ridiculous. I will check Ryanair & Easyjet - but is there a ferry or any other option that I don't see? We plan on renting a car in both locations. I am thinking we will base around St Remy and somewhere near Florence. I think ideally I would want to start in Italy and move to France for a better chance at catching the lavender in bloom. Thanks in advance for your help!
