After 3 days in which we plan to spend exploring Arles, Avignon (we will be based in Saint Remy and have a car) and the highlights of western Provence we have roughly 7 day to work our way to our final destination of Nice. The various guide books give conflicting opinions on where to go and how much time to spend. For example, Rick doesn't even have Aix Provence in his recent books I have but others say it is a must see. What would be your route? We don't want to do Marseille or spend a lot of time in over priced beach towns but nevertheless it would be nice to see them. We would like a nice mix of beaches and inland exploring. Hoping someone that has been in this area might have some good ideas.
