Roman ruins trip, southern France

Jump to last reply

If all goes well (I have a cancer-riddled sister who is doing quite well on chemotherapy) and we get to go, we have a wish list of several sites and cities in southern France we'd like to see. The trip is planned for mid-October for probably 9 days in France and then 4 days in London. We will arrive Thursday and leave for London the next week on Saturday.
Nimes, Orange, Avignon, Pont du Gard, Arles and the Camargue.
At the moment, I have my eye on a nice, budget-friendly apartment in Rochefort du Gard for a base. We'll have a car. I was thinking we would stay in the apartment for 7 days and then move south, maybe to Aigues Mortes for a couple days, or we could one day here and one day there if there are sights to be seen that are far enough apart. Marseille is also an option as we plan on flying in and out of there.
I'm here to ask for help in organizing the trip logically, especially for those days we should or should not be in a certain town for market days, or not to be somewhere on certain days because everything will be closed. Also the "don't miss" things we will probably drive right by without even knowing they are there. Advice on where to park would be really appreciated because my husband is one of those people that doesn't like not knowing where he is going so if I can map out things like that it makes life better. Restaurant recommendations are greatly appreciated, under 25€.
