Almost Finalized Itinerary - Paris, Bordeaux, Provence, Nice

Jump to last reply

I believe I have figured out how we would like to map out our trip to France(this trip is more difficult to plan than Italy, sheesh!)

July 10 - Depart US for Paris
July 11 - Arrive in Paris at 9:30am, take it easy just walking around, dinner
July 12 - Paris(exploring, Eiffel Tower, museum, markets)
July 13 - Day trip to Loire Valley (should we drive or take a guided tour??) If you suggest driving, please provide some recommendations.
July 14 - Train to Bordeaux early in the morning - spend the rest of the day exploring
July 15th - Day trip to St. Emilion - I found a bike tour on Viator.com
July 16th - Train back to Paris in the afternoon. Dinner in Paris
July 17th - Paris - Versailles
July 18th - Day trip to Bruges or Brussels
July 19th - Paris - relax, explore
***July 20th - Train to an area in Provence - I am still unsure since I would like to rent a car. If I have to take a train to 1 destination, rent a car there and continue on to our base(still unknown), I'm fine with doing that. Where is the best/easiest place to rent a car?
July 21 - Explore Provence
July 22 - Explore Provence
July 23 - Drive to Nice
July 24 - Nice
July 25 - Nice
July 26 - Nice
July 27 - Depart Nice for US

In Nice, we will just take a few day trips, most likely by train to other towns/villages. We will rent an exotic car on one day to cruise around the coastline. Any recommendations for day trips from Nice?

***Am I complicating my trip by my July 20th plan?

We are not big fans of going to many museums in Paris. We are interested in going to the Louvre, and that's probably it. If we do visit a Museum, we are more interested in Science, a place of residence, or Historical architecture vs. Art. We are more of a couple that likes to take in the architecture, mini street, hidden gems, and experience all the food & Markets Paris has to offer.

If you think I should take away a day somewhere to add a day elsewhere, please let me know and why?

I appreciate all opinions, but giving support behind your opinion will help me to reassess and re-plan.
