I have 5 unplanned days of travel after a month of studying French in Villefranche sur Mer (5 mins train from Nice) this fall. I will probably have seen most of the area around Nice by the time my month of school has finished. I am looking for recommendations for 5 days; I will start out from Villefranche and fly out of Nice on day 6 so I will want to stay overnight in Nice on day 6.
I love open air food markets and historical architecture; I am considering Aix and Isle sur la Sorgue and Carcassonne. I don't want to change hotels every night and hope to stay a couple of nights in 2 places. On a previous RS tour I stayed in Arles, Vaison la Romaine and saw numerous sites around Arles at that time. I will be relying on trains and buses for transportation. Any suggestions/opinions, likes/dislikes? Thanks in advance.
