Hello Seasoned Travelers!
We - the two of us - are planning our travel to the southern areas of France and would like your opinions as to which town would be a good home base for exploring the area: Arles or Avignon? And are there must-see locations, exhibits, towns, restaurants, tours we should include in our planning?
We have a car and our travel style is "outline the travel stops and adjust our stays based on how well we like (or not) the location", making reservations for the next day's journey as we go.
We will be in the southern area mid-October, if that plays any part in your recommendations.
Anxiously awaiting travel,
