Provence and the French Riviera in 20 days

Jump to last reply

I am seeking advice on the first leg of a six month holiday I am planning for the second half of 2013 - any would be much appreciated!

To start with, my girlfriend and I are flying into Paris on 2 August 2013 and arriving at about 6am. We then plan on hopping straight on a train and heading south to Avignon (don't panic, we are planning a couple of weeks in Paris later on in the trip). We are thinking we will hire a car in Avignon and spend about two nights there. We then plan on driving from Avignon to Aix-en-Provence, where we plan to spend about four nights. After this, we will return the car and catch a bus or train to St Tropez, where we will spend three nights. Next, we plan on catching a bus or train to Nice and staying for three or four nights. Finally, we want to spend three or four nights in Monaco (either Monte Carlo or Menton).

Does anyone have any tips/recommendations? Have we missed anywhere that we must see, and have we allocated enough time to each place?

Any help would be much appreciated!
