Provence - Selecting a Base for Train/Bus Accessible Destinations

Jump to last reply

I'm in the second phase of planning this trip. The first phase determined that I should move forward.

I realize that we will not be able to visit the smallest of villages. However, I have compiled what I think is a good list of train/bus accessible destinations.

This trip is for June/July 2011. It appears we will be able to arrive in Marseille by plane. We'll spend approximately eight days in Provence and fly to Paris for a couple of more days (we've been to Paris on three previous occasions) before returning home to South Florida.

I realize we way not visit all of the following but it is a list of what I think are train/bus accessible destinations of interest that are within an hour of potential bases:

Aix-en_Provence
Avignon
Orange
Arles
St Remy
L'Isle-Sur-La-Sorgue
Montpellier
Nimes
Les Baux - not sure if accessible
Uzes - not sure if accessible

Since we will be arriving in Marseille, I imaging the base (possibly two of them) should not be at an extremity (such as Montpellier).

Also, since we probably wouldn't want to be daytripping every day, bases(s) should be able to occupy us for at least a day or two.

Transportation-wise Avignon appears to fit but I'm not sure about it.

Which of the above locations (or possibly others) would be good bases for this trip?

Thanks.
