1st time in Europe! France/Switzerland ADVICE??

Jump to last reply

So, my husband and I have most of our itinerary planned, but we have a few Burgundy/Alsace questions: Thank you ahead of time!

*flight to Genoa
-Cinque Terre-4 nights
*flight to Paris
-Paris--3 nights
(pick up rental car)
-Bayeaux--2 nights
-Dinan--2 nights
-Crozon peninsula--3 nights
long day of driving toward Burgundy

Now onto Burgundy/Alsace regions:
We have 4 nights for Burgundy and 3 nights for Alsace. Our ideas were:
2 nights in Flavigny (from that base, visiting Semur en Auxois, Fontenay Abbey, etc)
2 nights in Beaune (biking wine route, enjoying the town)

We are still debating on where to stay in Alsace. We want at least one night in a small village (aka, Eguisheim) and 1 or 2 in either Colmar or a northern town in Alsace.

Here are the questions:)
After Burgundy and Alsace, we are headed to Gimmelwald for 4 nights and then flying out of Geneva. But on our way to the Alps, we thought we'd hit up a Swiss city, preferably Luzerne. Our first rough draft had us staying in Luzerne for 2 nights and then onto Gimmelwald. But now we are considering replacing it for one more night in Burgundy and one more night in Alsace. What do you think? The reason we chose Luzerne is b/c we thought maybe it'd be neat to check out a Swiss city, but our main reason for visiting Switzerland is for the Alps.

With adding a night in Burgundy (total of 5 nights) we thought we could take a day trip to some of the southern towns in Burgundy for a little different feel or daytrip to Dijon. With an extra day in Alsace, (Maybe see Strasbourg). Any advise on that? So basically, skipping Luzerne for 2 more nights in France (Burgundy/Alsace) or not? Thank you so much!!
