I know that everyone has differing opinions(the reason I love TA) so please weigh in.
We have one weekend (October) in Avignon with car.
Must see: Pont du Gard, pretty drives, a market for pleasure and probably some purchase of linens, not heavy duty shopping.
Arrive Friday afternoon, explore Avignon
Sunday: market Isle le Sorgue(hesitation, sounds awfully big, how many antique shops do we browse before exhausted? Lost of mixed opinions here!) then what on Sunday?
Monday; market in another town that has been mentioned here-starts with a B(can't search or I will lose this post!) then visit in that area before evening train to Paris.
I have also read that there is Saturday market in Avignon and also daily market, but not many opinions. Any food we would buy would have to be consumed in picnic, unless there are recommended gifts that can be packed.
Some might depend on best day to visit Pont du Gard since we would like several hours to see museum.
Thanks! I hope to get lots of opinions!
