Nice
Italy is just round the corner from French Riviera and therefore we decided to make the best use of our schengen visa. We took a train and headed to the Italian town of Ventimiglia. It's just a small train ride away. From eating oysters to digging in pasta- we did that in one day and we were pretty kicked about it. The moment you cross the border, you will notice a stark difference between the French and the Italian culture. Just within a few miles, you see a difference in food, textures, flavours, language, people. We entered a bustling market selling local fruits, vegetables and flowers. The prices are generally lower than what you will find across the French border. Do find time to devour some sinful local risotto, spaghetti and pasta and end your meal with a heavenly tiramisu.
Marseille
If you’re looking to venture to the South of France, don’t pass up this spot loved by locals. You may be thinking how a well known city like Marseille made this list, but there’s more to it outside of the crowded city center. Come here to experience Les Calanques, or coves, where adrenaline junkies can jump off cliffs into the sea or you can lounge in the sun.
Geneva
Geneva is globally known for being the headquarters of the mighty United Nations. But, the city's vintage charm, eloquent looks and bubbling energy will not only help you relax but live life at large.
Toulouse
How to reach: 1.5 hour train from Toulouse Matabiau station to Carcassonne. From Carcassonne rental cars are available to Montsegur.

About Avignon

We drove to Avignon to find our wedding caterer whose address was “towards Avignon, turn right at small town, after cemetery take third road on the left which a grey sign with no name on it…that’s where you’ll find me.” That’s how things roll around here. Near Avignon is where you’ll find those famous fields of lavender, they even do bus tours apparently, but the town itself is also an amazing maze of little roads, giant walls, bridges, ruins, churches, markets, restaurants and general amazing French-ness. Down the road is Orange, famous for having some of the most impressive Roman architecture still standing in Europe.
