Avignon to Nice
Avignon is on the left bank of the RhÃ´ne river, a few kilometres above its confluence with the Durance. On the west it shares a border with the department of Gard and the communes of Villeneuve-lÃ¨s-Avignon and Les Angles and to the south it borders the department of Bouches-du-RhÃ´ne and the communes of Barbentane, Rognonas, ChÃ¢teaurenard, and Noves. Likewise, Nice is the fifth most populous city in France and the capital of the Alpes-Maritimes dÃ©partement. Located in the French Riviera, on the south east coast of France on the Mediterranean Sea, at the foot of the Alps, Nice is the second-largest French city on the Mediterranean coast and the second-largest city in the Provence-Alpes-CÃ´te d'Azur region after Marseille.
