I'm looking for advice on a trip to France and Italy for a late-20's couple that enjoy and are experienced with California wine. Our goal is to be introduced to and enjoy Old World European Wine, as well as experience some of culture and and activities of a typical European vacation. Time of year will be late April.
After some initial research, my basic plan is to start in Paris (2-3 days), travel through Bordeaux to visit vineyards (2-3 days), then move into Italy, stopping in Tuscany (more wine/vineyards) for 2-3 days, and ending in Rome (2-3 days). Probably traveling primarily via train. Budget is mid-level.
I would appreciate any thoughts on additions or changes to that itinerary. Thanks for your help!
