Avignon/Aix-en-Provence or Gordes/Rouissillion?

Jump to last reply

We (two couples) are taking a cruise in late September, docking in Marseille, but want to take an excursion into Provence. I am undecided between two all-day ones: Avignon and Aix-en-Provence, or Gordes and Rouissillion.
My husband and I have been to Avignon and a few small towns in the south of France (but not Aix) several years ago and enjoyed them; the other couple has never been to Europe, so I would like to see some new things ourselves but also give the other couple a varied experience. We will be touring the Cinque Terre the previous day, so I am not sure if Gordes and Rouissillion would seem repetitious? This stop is scheduled on a Friday, and we could be in Aix in the afternoon, so would there be any interesting markets (it seems that the markets are a big part of the allure of Aix-en-Provence)?
Any advice on which excursion to take? Both are well-rated, and I haven't found anything of substance on Cruise Critic or other cruise forums.
