I am planning a trip with some friends in Oct2014 and would like to seek your expert advice! Tripadvisor has been great in helping me plan my trip, I have a rough idea of what I want to see/do. Please help in letting me know if the below makes sense and if I am missing out on any major attractions/must do.
Some background, we are a group of 5 in our early 30s, fit condition, mainly interested in major sights (not much of a Museum type people though), small and quaint villages, markets are a must and also we want to experience the food of the area. We will be spending the first half of our trip in the Riviera area, and will be driving a rental car to St Remy where we will base ourselves for this half of the trip.
Fri 10 Oct Day 7 – Avignon, pont du gard, Chateauneuf du Pape
Sat 11 Oct Day 8 –Arles for the market and also explore the city, Les Baux de provence in the afternoon.
Sun 12 Oct Day 9 – L’isle Sur la Sorgue Market in the AM, Gordes, Rousssilion, Bonnieux at night
Mon 13 Oct Day 10 – Cassis and hiking the calanques, dinner at Aix en Provence?
Tue 14 Oct Day 11 – Explore St Remy, then drive back to Nice to catch a PM flight to Paris
your opinions are highly appreciated as always!
