Suggested ideas for a week between Florence and Aix

Jump to last reply

Hello. In early April, I will be traveling to Tuscany with my family. Afterwards, I will be going alone to visit a friend who lives near Aix en Provence. My family leaves Florence on a Sunday and my friend has business travel Monday through Thursday, so my plan is to arrive in Aix on Friday. This leaves me M-F to travel on my own. I'd appreciate any suggestions.

details about me
- I will be on a budget (more $ than a backpacker, but I won't be staying in big hotels or renting a car)
- I've been to the Cinque Terre twice, and Rome, Venice, San Gimignano, the Lake Region once.
- Only part of France I've been to is Paris
- Also been to Barcelona
- I like big cities and small towns
- My friend grew up in Provence so I will have an expert showing me around Aix and/or Forcalquier and/or Dauphin.

I'd simply make my way along the Italian and French rivieras (maybe picking two or three towns), but I don't know if that makes sense given the time of year. Any input?

Thanks so much
