We are going to Provence and French Riviera for 7 days this October. We've already booked plane ticket from Bangkok to Paris since it was on promotion. I have a draft of my itinerary and I need some suggestions on it. We are considering flying from Paris to Marseille and back to Paris from Nice since it is a lot faster than taking trains then rent a car for traveling in the region so this is my itinerary.
Day 1 : Marseille and Calanque du Sugiton
Day 2 : Aix-en-Provence
Day 3 : Avignon
Day 4 : Gordes and Roussilon
Day 5 : Arles and Les Baux de Provence or Nimes
Day 6 : Moustiers Sainte Marie and Gorges du Verdon
Day 7 : Nice and Eze
Also, there are some questions I'd like to ask:
1. I don't know how much time we should spend in each Luberon villages like Gordes or Roussillon. Can we fit more than 2 villages in a day?
2. What do you like better in your opinion between Les Baux and Nimes/Pont du Gard seeing that we already plan to go to a lot of villages. Is Les Baux worth it?
3. Which town should we use as a base for this itinerary?
Feel free to suggest. Advices are appreciated.
