South of France - HELP

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I are heading over to Europe next October, just for 25 days to give ourselves a taste of a few places.

I want to spend 8 nights in the South of France in total. We will be beginning our trip in Paris, and then head down South before flying out of Marseille airport to Prague.

There are a few places that i really would love to see, but i am just not sure how many of them would be doable in that time frame.

We want to see:
Carcassonne
Nimes
Avignon
Montpellier
Uzes
Marseilles (maybe?)

We were thinking of spending 2 nights in Carcassonne, 5 or 6 nights in Nimes and maybe 1 night in Marseille. We would then do day trips from Nimes to Avignon and/or Montpellier and/or Uzes.

Does this make sense, or are there better cities in the area to visit? Please advise! There is so much we want to see and do, and it is soooo hard to limit it to just a few.

From the research that i have done, it seems Marseille airport is a fair way out of the city. The train from Nimes takes just over an hour, so would it be best to skip visiting Marseille altogether and just get the train to the airport the morning of departure? Or is Marseille worth a brief visit?
