Itinerary suggestion for Cote d'Azur and Provence

Jump to last reply

I am going on a 18N/19D tour of Italy, France and Spain with my wife and 19 year old daughter, of which 4 nights (May 22-25, 2012) will be in Rome, 2 nights in Florence; 4 nights in Cannes; 3 nights in Avignon; 1 night in Montpellier and the last 4 nights in Barcelona. I've booked apartments in all the cities except Montpellier where I'll book a hotel. I need help in planning my itinerary in Cote d'Azur and Provence.

My rough plan for the French part of my trip is as follows:

May 28 - Reaching Cannes around 5PM. Window shop on Rue d'Antibes and stroll along the Croisette promenade at night - I hope it's safe?
May 29 - Trip to Antibes, Biot and Haut-de-Cagnes
May 30 - Trip to Nice
May 31 - Trip to Menton, Monaco and Villefranche-sur-Mer
June 1 - Reach Avignon before lunch and walk around the city centre
June 2 - Half day in Aix and half day in Avignon
June 3 - Hire a car and visit Pont du Gard, Nimes, Uzès, Arles and Orange - is it too much? Should I drop Orange?
June 4 - Reach Montpellier in the forenoon and hang around the Place de la Comedie, check out the covered markets and soak in the history.
June 5 - Take the 10:41 train to Figueres. Visit the Dali museum there before proceeding to Barcelona.

With time being a constraint and so much to see, I am apprehensive about leaving out some great places. I want to visit only the museums of masters like Picasso, Renoir, Matisse, Chagal and leave out the other museums for paucity of time. Will appreciate valuable suggestions from experienced travellers.
