some provence questions

going to provence over the easter holiday. what will be opened or closed during this time? any special event not to miss?

also, is there a site that lists distances and /or driving times between cities and villages in provence?

thank you for any help

Viamichelin.com has a feature on driving times and maps that I have found very useful. It will even list toll and gas costs.

But also Easter is the time of the Ferias(bullfights) in Arles and Nimes.

JoeCal - thanks for the info. This is exactly what i've been looking for.

cigalechanta - great site. I had no idea that there were bullfights in provence. thanks for the tip.

and thank you Underhill for you site info. This stuff will really help me plan out our days.

I am new to Fodors, and I am really impressed at the responses and incredible networking that goes on here. This stuff is invaluable.
