Barcelona to Marseilles WHERE In Between?

Jump to last reply

15 night trip for DH and me (in 50s) begins in mid May. We are envisioning five nights at each end, (arrive in a.m.), but it's the five in the middle that are under consideration. Also probably ok to take a night away from Marseilles if needed. The five in Barcelona would include a day to Montserrat or Girona. We enjoy art, classical music, fine food (but not seafood), wine!, churches, scenic overlooks and lots of walking. (not too into shopping generally). Last spring's awesome trip was two weeks exploring Madrid, Malaga, Cordoba, Sevilla, Granada by train.

We are considering Mallorca, or else train/car Spain to southern France. Your ideas are welcome. This is our first time to Barcelona, and I haven't been to Marseilles for many years.

Option one: Mallorca would be nature/hike/caves, sightsee Palma, train to Soller. We would not anticipate beach activity except for a walk along it. . Thinking of basing in Palma, we tend to like cities. We do travel light, so could switch locales...

Option two: 1 Girona, 2-3 Montpellier, 4-5 Avignon or Aix? But I am not sure of "big pops" interesting activities in last two. I've been to Aix once as well, 40 years ago, and remember my first taste of herbes au Provence there, :) as well as watching a purse snatching unfold in the square in front of us :(
Option three: 3 nts Mallorca and 2 nts Lyons or Aix? (depending on exit flight Palma to ?)
Your thoughts welcomed, thank you in advance.
