We have 6 days & nights are flying in and out of Marseille on Sept. 18th, and we will have a car. We are considering the following itinerary: 2 nights Arles (day trip to Avignon) 2 nights Nice (day trip to Cap St. Jean Ferrat) and 2 nights in Aix or Cassis.
Should we trade Avignon for Nimes? Should we try to stay in a smaller town and simply drive into Nice? (Not sure of parking)
We considered Cassis over Aix simply because we thought it would allow us quick access to Marseille to take in a view of the city or port before we leave on a 1 pm flight
We want to make sure to include at least one coastal town. We are a 'mixed' group, one never to Europe prior, one seasoned traveler,never to south of France before, and I have been to Nice, Aix and Vence on a previous trip.
