5 nights in Provence

Jump to last reply

This is a re-badging of my France no Paris thread --
We arrive in DCG mid April and head by train to Avignon arriving around 2:30 PM.
At 2 PM of our 6th day we leave from Nice airport.

Now the fun and questions begin for this Provence novice - How best to split up those 5 nights. I have duly studied Stu Dudley's suggestions, this forum, clips on youtube and some guidebooks and am left like a person at a gelato bar trying to pick a few flavors when they all look so good.

First thoughts are to pick up rental car at Avignon TGV and head for: St Remy? St. Paul? Arles? (somewhere else?) for 2?, 3? nights. Then on to Aix for the remaining nights save one to be spent close to Nice or Nice proper? Or should we head somewhere else in the direction of Nice, close enough to make our flight comfortably for X remaining nights? What do you think? Should we try some time in Monaco. Frankly what I know of Monaco does not appeal but then I do not know much other than there are a lot of casinos and hotels. We prefer small towns, interesting architecture, history, art and ambiance.
