4 days - provence or Côte d'Azur?

Jump to last reply

We will be traveling to France next September (2015) for a river boat cruise down the Rhone river, visiting cities such as Chalon, Lyon, Arles, Avignon, Vienne, Tournon, and Viviers. We will be arriving in Paris several days before our cruise and spending 4 days getting acclimated and driving into Normandy.

After the cruise, (ends in Arles), we want to spend a few days doing something else.

What I'm wondering is, if you had only 4 days in either Provence or Côte d'Azur, which would you go to? I was in Nice, Monaco and Avignon about 20 years ago (college years) just spending about a day in each. This trip, i will be traveling with my husband who hasn't been to either region.

I'd appreciate any suggestions or comments. I'm leaning towards Provence, possibly staying in St Remy as a base.
