DH just told me of a trip hiccup- france near Italian border?

Jump to last reply

We have a trip for about a month and have a hiccup. I am now looking for your sage advice for the last 7-8 days of our trip. Traveling will be 2 adults, 2 boys 10 and 13.

We start in England and spend days 1-16 there, then we were supposed to be in the Normandy area 17-23, and the last week in Paris.

Now the DH has a business meeting in Milan on day 20.

The boys have done Italy (venice, Florence, Rome and South), but not Como (or Milan).

My thoughts are:
1. Find a place for a week closer to the Italian border, let the DH do the business travel without us (villa for a week opt 1).
2. Same as above but let him go from Normandy (which I think is a whip for him. (villa for a week opt 2.)
3. See Normandy on another trip, and flip it to travel along the German/Switzerland/Italian side and possibly try to visit a small city in those countries- then train to Milan, maybe spend a night in Como. (touring option).

Would love the kids to see Normandy, but they also love the "new country in their passport" feeling. Days 2-16 are in one location (visiting dear friends in England). So we shouldn't be travel weary.

We can still cancel Normandy, so there aren't issues with losing deposits. This is for July time period (I know things will be tight, but we are fairly easy going with lodging and impromptu changes).

Thanks!!
