Please help me finalize my itinerary

Jump to last reply

We are a family of four with 10 year old twin boys visiting the provence area in the first week of July as part of an extended trip to France. Our initial priorities were just visiting the lavender fields usually in bloom during that time but as I read more about the region in the forum, I realize I have planned too little time for provence! Thanks to Stu for sending me his detailed itineraries. Our current plans look like this

Wed - Drive from Carcassonne, afternoon in Pont du gard, evening- will I have time for Avignon ( worried about parking issues during the first week of July due to the theatre festival) or Orange or cote du rhone drive along with visit to seguret ? Planning to stay near Rousillon/ Gordes (2 nights)

Thu- Luberon drive

Fri - Lavender fields near Sault, bullfight( the camarguaise one) in Arles (1 night)

Sat - Arles market, Le Baux ( as it has some extra medieval demonstration and stuff on weekends and though it might interest the boys) and drive to Nice for 3 days

As you can see, I just have 2 full days and 2 half days in Provence. With that in mind, please advice if I am prioritizing right and if I am too ambitious?, which I guess I am!
