On June 10, the fastest long-distance train in the world--the Train a Grande Vitesse, known as the TGV--will inaugurate a new connection on France's most popular route. With the TGV, Paris will be three hours from the Mediterranean port of Marseilles, 500 miles away--cutting one hour, 20 minutes from the trip. The route goes through Provence and includes such popular tourist stops as Avignon, home to the medieval Palace of the Popes; picturesque Aix-en-Provence, where artist Paul Cezanne lived and worked; and Nimes, known for its classical Roman ruins.
