Help with Itinerary for Marseille/Provence trip in September

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip to Marseille and Provence for this coming September. We could really use some help with our itinerary. We travel a lot and our best trips involve a lot of walking vs. driving. So I am hoping to plan the Provence part of the trip with a lot of time exploring towns on foot and not a lot of time in the car. We also love fine dinning but I have not yet focused at that aspect of this trip! Here is what I have come up with – please send me any and all suggestions/revisions. And as you can see, I have questions in the draft itinerary as well.
We are interested in exploring towns and the countryside and seeing Roman ruins as well.

Day 1 - Thursday
Flight to Marseille in the evening

Day 2 - Friday
Arrive Marseille and sleep Marseille

Day 4 - Saturday
Marseille – My husband will be visiting Toulon that day.
Sleep Marseille

Day 5 - Sunday
Marseille
Sleep Marseille

Day 6 – Monday
Early AM drive to St. Remy and check in
Sleep St. Remy
Arles
Les Baux

Day 7 – Tuesday
Avignon
Pont du Gard
Orange? Or is this too much? Or Nimes?
Sleep St. Remy

Day 8 – Wednesday
AM Market in St. Remy
Drive to hotel – not sure if we should stay in either Bonnieux, Roussillon, or Gordes?
I could use some help with where to go on this afternoon, I guess it depends on where we end up staying overnight. Could use this day to visit the three town listed above

Day 9 - Thursday
Lourmarin or Isle-sur-la-sorgue market in am
Again, would appreciate some help with planning this afternoon, possibly Lacoste, Menerbes?


Day 10 – Friday
Drive to Aix-en-Provence and check in to hotel
Sleep Aix-en-Provence
Cassis for the day
Or something else in area?

Day 11 Saturday
Aix en Provence market in am and tour town for the rest of the day
Sleep Aix en Provence

Day 12 - Sunday
Drive to Marseille and fly home
