The closest stations to there would be either in Avignon or Tarascon-sur-Rhône. <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/avignon" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/avignon">Avignon</a> is about 12-13 miles from Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, while Tarascon-sur-Rhône is about 9-10 miles from Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. However, I would imagine that it might be easier to find transportation to Saint-Rémy-de-Provence from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/avignon" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Avignon</a> rather than from Tarascon-sur-Rhône.<br /><br />For the itinerary you laid out, your best option would be to get the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/france-rail-pass-5911" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/france-rail-pass-5911">Eurail France Pass</a>. For the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/france-rail-pass-5911" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/france-rail-pass-5911">Eurail France Pass</a>, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/france-rail-pass-5911" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/france-rail-pass-5911">https://www.raileurope.com/pass/france-rail-pass-5911</a>.<br /><br />This pass does not offer senior rates, but you would be able to purchase the pass at the discounted 'Saver' rate. To be eligible for the 'Saver' rate, there just needs to be 2 or more passengers traveling together at all times. As long as there will be 2 or more adults in your party, you would just check the box where it says, “Adults traveling as a group get a discount”. By doing this, it would ensure that our website quotes you the ‘Saver’ rate.<br /><br /><b><u>Paris to Avignon (Avignon TGV)</u></b><br /><br />Trains from Paris to Avignon are high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TGV</a> trains, which require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass.<br /><br />For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations by searching the route on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>), checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a ‘Eurail France Pass’).<br /><br />On our website, there are two different entries for <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/avignon" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Avignon</a>: 'Avignon TGV' and just 'Avignon'. 'Avignon TGV' refers to the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/avignon-tgv" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/place/avignon-tgv">Avignon TGV station</a>, and 'Avignon' refers to the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/avignon-centre" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Avignon Centre station</a>. Most trains from Paris to Avignon arrive into the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/avignon-tgv" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/place/avignon-tgv">TGV station</a>. To access these trains, you would have to type 'Avignon TGV' in the field for the arrival city. If you just type 'Avignon' there, our website would only display schedules for the trains that go to the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/avignon-centre" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Avignon Centre station</a>, which are much less frequent.<br /><br />However, if you do want to continue on to Tarascon-sur-Rhône, you would take a regional <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TER</a> train out of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/avignon-centre" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/place/avignon-centre">Avignon Centre station</a>. Therefore, you would purchase reservations on one of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TGV</a>s from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris</a> to there just by searching 'Paris' to 'Avignon'. <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TER</a> trains do not accept reservations, so the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/france-rail-pass-5911" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/france-rail-pass-5911">Eurail France Pass</a> is all you would need to board for the segment from Avignon to Tarascon-sur-Rhône.<br /><br /><b><u>Avignon (Avignon TGV) to Monaco</u></b><br /><br />Connections from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/avignon" rel="nofollow">Avignon</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/monaco" rel="nofollow">Monaco</a> take just under 4 hours in duration and involve changing trains once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/nice" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Nice</a> along the way.<br /><br />Trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/avignon" rel="nofollow">Avignon</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/nice" rel="nofollow">Nice</a> are <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537">TGV</a> high-speed trains that depart from the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/avignon-tgv" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/place/avignon-tgv">Avignon TGV station</a> and require reservations.

    Change in reply by Jeff to Hi Gerry,<br /><br />Saint-Rémy-de-Provence itself does not have a rail station. The closest station to there would be either Avignon or Tarascon-sur-Rhône. Avignon is about 12-13 miles from Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, while Tarascon-sur-Rhône is about 9-10 miles from Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. However, I would imagine that it might be easier to find transportation to Saint-Rémy-de-Provence from Avignon rather than from Tarascon-sur-Rhône.<br /><br />For the itinerary you laid out, your best option would be to get the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/france-rail-pass-5911" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/france-rail-pass-5911">Eurail France Pass</a>.

    Changed description to Next March my wife and I will be staying for 3 days in Paris, then 2 nights in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, 6 nights in Monaco, then traveling back to Paris to fly back to the US. I'm 62 years old, but my wife is only 61. I'm wondering if there are regular trains connecting all of these locations, and if it's worth it to buy a senior pass or better to get a Saver Pass and both of us travel on a single Saver Pass at a 15% discount per person. thank you!
