3 weeks France + north Italy itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi, I'd like to get some input on a trip I'm organizing between May and June (21 days) to cover some of France and some of north Italy.

I'm from Argentina and will be travelling with my wife and my 2 1/2 years old daughter.

We have already been in Paris in a previous trip so we don't want to spend a lot of time in there in this one (one or two days would be just fine)

We will probabbly be fyling in and out from Milan (it's cheaper for us)

This is my initial idea:

Fly into Milan and then fly to Paris

1 day in Paris

Rent a car and spend 3 days driving through Normandy up to Mt. Saint-Michel and then return the car back in Paris

1 day in Paris

Train to somewhere in the Dordogne region (Perigueux?)

Rent a car

3 days in the Dordogne region (I'm not very interested in the prehistoric caves)

1 night in Carcassone

3 days in Provence region (I'd like to see the Calanques)

2 days in Nice and return car here

train to Cinque Terre region

2 days in Vernazza?

train to Milan

2 days in Milan (maybe rent a car to go around Lake Como)

fly back home

I think that gives me 20 days so I have 1 additional day to put somewhere.

I have doubts mainly about the last part of the itinerary: I'm afraid it may involve too much travelling time (Nice-Cinque Terre-Milan)... I haven't read many exiting things about Milan...

I'm trying to figure out if the time allocation in each place is ok, and to get some general feedback about the itinerary.

Thanks in advance.
