Three days in Provence in October - travel itinerary feedback?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone - I have read some great suggestions on other forums on travel itineraries for spending 3 full days in Provence. We are going to be staying just east of Arles from Sept 20-23.
In as much as I would like to "see it all", I am trying to opt for quality vs quantity and trying to group places of interest by what makes sense geographically taking travel times into account. I would love to see Aix and visit a market, but not sure where I can fit it in.
This is still a work in progress and would appreciate any feedback on what I am proposing

Thurs:
* arrive in Avignon mid-afternoon; pick up rental car
* time depending-see Palais des Papes
* make our way to accommodations east of Arles (~ 40 mins fr/Avignon)
* Arles somewhere for dinner (suggestions?) and do a walking tour after dinner

Friday: Explore the Camargue in the am (drive-thru and do a short hike), Pont du Gard (pick up some food and have a picnic lunch along the river?), Uzes, Les Baux or St Remy (late afternoon - dinner?)
(Can I reasonably get anything else in?)

Saturday or Sunday: Explore the Luberon -
Lourmarin? (see below)
Bonnieux (view from outside the village only)
Apt (explore market - should we go there first?)
Saignon
Roussillon (lunch here?)
Gordes (take picture from "the spot")
Abbaye de Senanque? worth a visit?
Lourmarin (on the return instead of the beginning?)
* I have read that the traffic can be really nasty on Saturday here due to the market in Apt - would it likely be bad late Sept as well? If not, then we would opt to see the Luberon on Saturday.

Sunday:
* explore Aix in am (lunch)
* Marseille in pm (dinner)?
* or back to Aix for dinner before we head home? Honestly, I am less interested in seeing Marseille, but it is closer to Aix so I added it in. Anything else I would be better off seeing rather than spending time in Marseille?

Many thanks in advance for any and all feedback!
