Paris is a real tourist magnet for millions of tourists from all over the world. However, France offers many exciting options for leisure travel that will not leave anyone indifferent.

One of the most unusual and incredible experiences is the Paris-Provence train tour. Among other things, Authentic Europe offers to create an unforgettable itinerary that will allow you to explore much more than just the French capital and a stylish seaside resort, according to the article The Good Llife France.

The incredible adventure begins in Paris, which is called the City of Light because it was one of the first major European cities to use gas street lighting in 1820. If you have some free time, maybe book a full day tour, as there are countless attractions in Paris.

However, the morning train is already carrying us to Burgundy and we pass the mountainous vineyards to Beaune, which is considered the "wine capital" of the region. The next day can be filled at your discretion. Among other things, you can follow it up with a half-day wine tour by bike, but if you are passionate about wine, perhaps opt for a full-day wine tour by minibus to sample the famous local wines.

After that, your next stop is Lyon , which is the third largest city in France and boasts a stunning Renaissance Old Town, two Roman theaters, and many museums.

The atmospheric city of Aix-en-Provence has close ties to the artist Paul Cézanne, and you can spend your free day following in his footsteps through the city center, enjoying the fountains and Renaissance facades. Want to get a taste of Provence? Then book a place for a 3-hour gourmet walking tour that includes a large market with stalls lined with fruits and vegetables, cheeses, and chocolates. And the local villages in the hills of Luberon are probably on the list of the most beautiful villages in France.

The final stop of the incredible route is charming Nice, a glorious resort that hosted many famous visitors in the late 19th and early 20th century. All of them left their mark on its architecture and lifestyle. Hundreds of years old, Nice is still the pearl of the Riviera with its charming Old Town, vast bay and stunning views from the Castle Hill.

But there are also many incredible places to visit nearby. You can also enjoy a number of optional day trips, including a drive through the countryside to Grasse, the world's perfume capital, with stops in Cannes and the medieval hilltop village of Gourdon. It is also possible to travel to Monaco by car, returning through the hilltop village of Eze and stopping in Cannes and Antibes.

In addition, you can also start the route in Nice and travel in the opposite direction; choose comfortable tourist-class hotels and additional excursions. The 7-day Discover Paris and the French Riviera tour can be an ideal option for exploring France.
