Train around France

Last week we traveled to France via the Euro-star from St pancreas station in London to Paris.We stayed for one night in St Pancreas hotel in London which was beautiful. We decided to go by train instead of boat or plane because my mum has a fear of flying so the first step to overcoming that was actually just going abroad by any other form of transport. The train ride was actually really nice; it was only 2 hours and you get to see other areas of France you might not necessarily see by flying.IMG_4793.JPG

We stayed for only one night in Paris but I definitely want to go back. We did the main tourist sites; the Eiffel tower, the Arc De Triomphe and then we did a river cruise on the river Seine to see other sites like the Notre Dame which I would definitely recommend if your’e only there for a short time like we were.

Then we went on a 6 hour train journey to Nice but it toured around most places in the south of France like Cannes and Marsailles. We stayed for 5 days in the Radisson blu hotel. We mostly stayed by the beach and the pool during the day because it was so hot. Then We went around the center as well in the evening which was full of cute restaurants and was really busy. We also went to the port but there wasn’t as much going on there.

I took a photo of this eye graffiti that I saw on the train journey from Paris to Nice, I think it is JR or in the style of and thought it was really cool.

Lastly we went to Avignon for a night, we had dinner on a river cruise and explored the little village on the outskirts which was really pretty and picturesque, it was kind of very stereotypical of what I expected a French town to be like. It was even hotter though at around 30 degrees. 

Where would you recommend visiting in France?
