Birthday trip for Mom in May 2015

Jump to last reply

My mom is turning 63 this Spring and I want to take her on a trip. She lived in England before she had children and has not been back to Europe since. Three weeks in the springtime would be lovely. Some input and suggestions greatly appreciated! She is not a planner so it's up to me to arrange and make sure she comes home relaxed and happy.

So far I have London so she can show me her old stomping grounds, train to Paris so I can show her mine, then train to Provence. I like to stay a while in one place but she's a mover so around 3-4 days in London would be enough, 4 or 5 in Paris then maybe 5-6 days in the riviera where she has not been and always wanted to see. That leaves us with about 7-8 days to go somewhere else excluding travel days. Somewhere we both have not been would be ideal with typically good weather. Maybe Vienna, Amalfi, Greece? She is in great shape with no physical limitations, enjoys fine dining, wine, beautiful scenery and particularly for her birthday...getting pampered! My younger sister might come along too but since she's planning a wedding it might just be us two. There are so many places to choose from, need to start brainstorming some possibilities. Thanks so much!

Cheers
