Jump to last reply

We have now got the itinerary sorted and need help with places in South of France, Tuscany area, and Greek islands.
Our itinerary looks like this
Dep Aust July 2014 arrive Lon 7n ( accommodation booked )
Dep Lon arrive Paris - Eurostar 7 nights ( accommodation booked )
Dep Par to Montpellier - by rail 1-2 nights here - need accommodation / Hire care to drive next day to Viaduct and back.
Dep Montpellier to (Uzes, or open to suggestions? ) 5-7 nights need accommodation ( will keep hire care and want to visit Pont de Guard too, and would like a lovely town like Uzes open to suggestions. Budget around 700e
Dep from here to be closer to beach to ? ( open to suggestions ) 3 nights accommodation needed. Will be flying out of Nice to Venice
Dep Nice to Venice 3n fly. ( accom not booked but have some suggestions) Travel by Rail to
Venice to Cinque Terre 7n ( accom not booked but have a self contained in mind)
CT to Lucca 1 night - pick up car hire and drive via Pisa
Lucca to maybe Greve? 3n ( nice town close to Florence would be good )
? to Rome - is it best to train it in from Florence? or best to drive with the 5 of us and see more?
Rome 3n ( accommodation not booked )
Rome to Santorini 4n ( accommodation not booked )
Santorini to pls suggest another island 4 n
? to Athens 2 n ( accommodation not booked )
Athens to Brisbane

We are pretty tight on the budget as we would like to stay away longer and experience more than pay more money on accommodation. We have allowed $1000 AUD per week for accommodation, knowing some will be more like in CT and others maybe less. We are looking at self contained as opposed to hotels we would require 2x rooms.

thanks so much for any suggestions and help with our itinerary. The kids are 14/11/9. We have not been to Europe before so trying to see a bit but also trying to keep the pace a little slower
regards,
Tracey
