Second thoughts about Provence - help!

Jump to last reply

I have been planning this trip for over a year and a half. My plans have changed along the way but essentially it was to fly to Nice and then to train to Avignon or Arles and do day trips from there. I was going to stay half the time or so in Nice.

My dilemma is that I don't drive. I have read the posts and have posted some myself. I have looked at your photos (thanks to all who share their lovely photographs). I understand that having a vehicle makes this part of France far more enjoyable. Am I really doing the trip an injustice by not having a car? Should I wait for this part of France until I can find someone who can drive?

I look at the photographs of lavender fields and think about how beautiful it must be. I am willing to take day trips with an organized tour if need be.

Has anyone done this trip with both a car and then by public transportation and did you still enjoy yourself and get to see a lot?

Everyone is different - I am just seeking some opinions.

Thanks for all of your input in advance.
