3 weeks in France & Italy

Jump to last reply

When I first started a thread on here a few months ago, I had this naive notion that I could visit 3 countries in 3 weeks, one being Greece. I've since smartened up and plan now to visit France and Italy only.

This trip is due to a wedding so my dates cannot change, we will be there from August 17- September 6 or 7th (depends how tired we want to be upon our return to work!) It’s all of our vacation time so we can’t stay any longer, and since my friend does live just outside of Paris, we will surely be back!)

Flights to Paris are booked, open jaw, as we plan to fly out of Rome.

France

We land in Paris on the 17th at 1pm
Will be in Paris for 4 nights and plan to take a train on the 21st to Limoges (where the bride is staying) and end up at Château de la Fleunie in Dordogne, Aquitane, France for the wedding on the 22nd.

23rd- is open if there’s anything in the area you think we should see otherwise we’ll use this day for the long drive or train ride ahead, or even if there is another place you think we should visit and have time for.

Trying to decide between driving and taking a train to the French Alps, where we’d like to spend a few days hiking, maybe stay in Chamonix and make our way to Italy. where should we drop off car before entering Italy if we go the car route?

Italy

In general we’d like to start in Venice, make our way to Florence, and end in Rome.

Any recommendations on how we should split the rest of our days up between those cities? We can use the train or rent a car, whatever you think would be best.

Any and all advice welcome :)

We'll be getting some guide books this weekend and i'd like to start booking things since it's high season.
