7-8 days in France. pls comment

Jump to last reply

We only have 7-8 days, but we really want to see as much of france as possible. i know we will spend quite a bit time on travelling.

Here is the plan.

2 of us, around 30, couple. arrive in France from Switzerland (geneva) in November:

Here is the plan:
5/11 Geneva - Nice (approx 8 hr by train, arrive in Nice in the afternoon))
6/11 Nice - Monaco (bus half hr) and other old towns to the east of Nice.
7/11 Nice/Cannes to Marseille (by train, 2.5hr) also some old towns to the west of Nice (skip Saint Tropez)
8/11 Marseille - Paris (train 3hrs)
9/11 Paris (MSM, a long day)
10/11 Paris (Loire Valley, train from Paris to Tour, then pick a local tour company. 1hr train)
11/11 Paris (Versailles, 4 hr minimum)
12/11 Paris
13/11 Paris

We will leave on 14/11 night for Hongkong.

It is our first time to France, so really want to have taste of everything. We will return for sure, but what is not sure is when. (and next time we will visit Italy and Germany...)

I am ready to be criticized.

another option (if really have to), skip the southern part completely, spend more days in the norther France...
we want to complete the train booking this weekend, so any comments will be appreciated. the more the sooner, the better. Thanks again.
