Meet in Nice and ride the Train du Pignes through Provence June 21-25, 2015 followed by the Parc du Queyras Wildflower Hiking Tour!
The journey begins exploring old town Nice where we base at a comfortable, authentic pension/bed & breakfast. Early morning walks up the coline above town offer the opportunity to wander the town cemetery and take in the breathtaking views of the deep blue Mediterranean below. The Matisse Museum, walks along the malecon and explorations of all the wonderful nuances in-between make for a fun filled three days. Join us anytime between June 21-23.
On June 24 we venture north as we wind through the backroads of Provence by the historic Train des Pignes. We arrive for lunch at the medieval town of Entreveaux where the old citadel awaits us. From there we ride the train on through Provence to Digne-Les-Bains.
On June 25 we drive north through scenic backroads to the Parc du Queyras where our 11 day hiking & cultural adventure begins! Cost: each participant pays for their own food, lodging and transport. The rest is provided as a curtesy to participants of the Wildflower Hiking Tour.
