I started traveling alone on day trips outside Paris during my second trip to France. From there, my first big adventure was to Nice. For some reason, I expected expansive sandy beaches and was surprised to find a stone plage. I loved the socca, the narrow and colorful rues of old town, the mouth-watering marché, and taking the local train to nearby destinations. I found confidence to travel further, even though my language skills were lacking.
At this point, the only region of France that I haven’t been to is Limousin. I could live twenty lifetimes in this miraculous country, and it wouldn’t be enough time to discover all of the beauty, people, heritage, history, traditions, micro-regions, culture, and secrets of ma belle France.
All these destinations are fantastic choices as you begin exploring what France has to offer outside of Paris. 👉It’s important to understand that the city doesn’t represent the rest of the country. There’s SO much more.👈
And of the easiest ways to start your adventure is by train. It’s such an enjoyable, stunning, low-stress way to travel. Walk on, sit down, and enjoy the views, darling.
