Help Me Remove Cities - Provence (Barcelona) Trip

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning our first trip to Europe in May. There are so many amazing cities to see we are having trouble deciding where to spend our time. Wondering if any avid travelers have some advice for us.

Our tentative plan is to fly into Barcelona and stay two nights and take the morning train on the third day from Barcelona to Avignon. Based on my research we would arrive in Avignon in the afternoon where we plan to rent a car and head out to a possible base outside of Gordes (40 min. from Avignon). We want to spend 5 nights in France before taking the train back to Barcelona for the night before our return flight home.

We like smaller villages and off the beaten path destinations. Is Avignon worth a visit?

I think this might be too many stops...any suggestions on what cities we can remove? Perhaps Marseille?

I isle sur la sorgue
St. Remy de Provence
Aix En Provence
Marseille
Cassis
Eze

I appreciate any insight you can provide. The more I research the more cities I want to go :)
