      Easter in Provence

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Apr 18, 2014 at 9:32 AM

      I'm spending Easter in Provence (based in Marsellie and doing day trips out) and would like some ideas on what to do in Provence over Easter. I'm alone so would like some nice things to do to keep me company! I like markets, festivals or just easter events.
      I would like to visit Aix En Provence, Arles, Lyon, Avignon etc but don't know which days would be best to see these towns. Do things close over the weekend?
      I'm here for 5 days.
      Or any other towns anyone would recommend to see?
      I can't drive around but am more then happy with public transport. Any help would be great!!

    • How to divide up 6 days in Nice/Aix-en-Provence--Suggestions Please?

      Nice Apr 7, 2014 at 3:46 PM


      My husband, 2 sons (17 and 12), and I will be arriving into Nice from the United States at around 11:30 am near the end of July and staying in the French Riviera and Aix en Provence for 6 days before we head to the Italian Riviera. We would like suggestions on how to divide up the trip.

      We would like to drive to Aix (inland route) and stop at some of the little towns along the way. We hear it is a beautiful drive, especially this time of year. On the way back to Nice, we also want to hit some of the smaller towns like Cassis. Of course, we will want to visit Antibes, Cannes, St. Tropez, St. Paul de Vence, Menton, Monaco, etc. We have been told that it is not smart to try to drive East on the Coast of Nice at this time of year due to traffic, so we were planning to take trains.

      We think we will be too tired to drive when we arrive the first night. We had originally been planning to stay the first night in Nice, then drive to Aix for 2 nights, then back to Nice as our home base for 3 more nights.

      Our second plan was to spend the first night in Antibes, the next 2 nights in Aix, and the remaining 3 nights in Nice.

      Now that I started looking into accommodations, I remember the reason we usually rent apartments, so I am thinking maybe we should stay in Nice for 3 nights and then Aix for 3 nights or perhaps Nice for 4 nights and then Aix for 2 nights.

      Because I have never been to any of these places, I was hoping that someone might have suggestions.

      We like eating, shopping (unique items--not T-shirts and not brand name items), little towns, people watching, tourist attractions, art (but not so much museums), and eating (higher end). (Of course, if anyone has any "can't miss" experiences, we welcome those as well. I am just beginning my research.) We will likely go to the beach once or twice for an hour or two, but it is definitely not the focus of our trip.

      Any recommendations on how to best divide up our time given your knowledge of the area--traffic, transportation, our interests, time of year, etc.?

      Thank you!!!

      by Makaveli2007 Online Now Jun 9, 2008 at 7:59 PM

      I know it has 70,000 or so inhabitants:-).

      I live in a town of 100,000 which I think is of decent size..of course not a big city with lots of stuff to do, but it's far from a small village.

      When I see pictures or videos of Antibes, it seems to be that Antibes (despite having a similar number of inhabitants) is the size of a small village, though.

      But on the other hand, it might be bigger than it looks (and of a decent size, too like 70,000 makes me think), because everybody just films the beach and the old-town?
