Ok I need some help from the blogging world! I'm going down to Montpellier next week for 5 days to visit a good friend of mine, but 2 of the days she has to work - since I've never visited the south of France before I'd like to do some day trips. I was thinking 1 day Avignon and 1 day in Carcassonne. I was looking at train times and if I reserve in advance I can get cheaper tickets.
So my question to you: is there enough to do in Avignon if I hang out from 10am - 8pm? Same in Carcassonne? I don't really like travelling on my own so I'd rather have things to do but not spend too much money either... anyway any advice would be very welcome!! :-)
