Am I utterly insane? Is this impossible? South of France itinerary help!

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip for my 62 y/o mother and myself in September. Five days will be spent exploring Provence/Riviera, with the sixth ending in Perpignan to take train to Barcelona. We'll be taking a train from Paris to Marseilles and renting a car there. This is the rough sketch of our itinerary so far:

Day one:
Arrive in Marseilles, pick up car, lunch in Marseilles, drive to Arles. Stay in Arles.

Day two:
Drive to Avignon, check out St. Remy de Provence and if time, Roussillion. Return and stay in Arles.

Day three: (I know I need a lot of help with this one!)
Two options -- Option 1:
Drive to Antibes and Nice, stopping in St. Tropez for lunch, returning and staying in Le Lavandou
OR Option 2:
Drive to Nice, stopping in Antibes, somehow fitting in Monaco, staying over in Nice.

Day four:
Drive to Aix-en-Provence, staying there, and fitting in Cassis during the day.

Day five:
Drive to Carcassonne, checking out St. Marie de la Mer and Montsegur, staying in Languedoc-Roussillon

Day six:
Drive to Perpignan, return car, train to BCN.

Thanks for the feedback! I need it!
