Advice needed for 3.5 days in Provence in April

Hi Everyone! Looking for some advice on must-see's in Provence. We arrive via train into Avignon around 12noon on Monday and will be staying in Meynes. We need to be in Marseille Thursday night as we fly back home on Friday morning. This gives us 3.5 days to see the sites. We will have a rental car. So far we've tentatively looked at exploring Avignon, Arles, Pont du Gard, Nimes, Les Baux and the Camargue. Is this too ambitious? Is there somewhere else we should try to fit in? Any and all advice is appreciated!

Trimming the Camargue could be sensible-unless you made it on your last day, on the way to Marseille. With Les Baux you may want to see the Carrieres des Lumieres down the road, it's quite a sight!

A very nice day can be done seeing Gordes then Roussillon, along with another village or two in the Luberon. We were in Gordes on a Tuesday, which is their market day.

We very much enjoyed Uzes, too, spent part of a day there before going to the Pont du Gard just before sunset.
