3-week France itinerary: your input is much appreciated

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone - we are off to France in June/July for three weeks. The flights are booked and we have a basic itinerary in mind. We're wondering if we should take a day out of Paris in the schedule below and add a day to Provence or leave it as-is. Your travel expertise is greatly appreciated.

Here's our itinerary:
Fly to Paris: 5.5 days (half day is the day we arrive at 9:30 am) including one day for Versailles. (Sunday through Friday).

Two days/two nights Loire: Take train to Tours early from Paris, pick up rental car and see the chateaux we're interested in. (Sat/Sun).

Drive to Dordogne: Three nights, two full days (canoe the river, see the caves.) (Mon, Tues, Wed.).

Drive to Provence (full day): 4 nights/3 days (Thurs thru Sunday) drop off car at end of stay here.

Train to Cote D'Azur: 3.5 days/ 4 nights (Mon - Thurs). Nice, Monaco, Cap d'Antibes, hill towns.

Fly home early next morning from Nice.

So what do you think? Many thanks!
