French Riviera AND Corsica?

Jump to last reply

Hi travel friends! Sorry in advance if this is long.

My husband and I have about 8 solid days, after travel, to spend on our vacation this summer. I am dying to go to France, particularly Paris, French Riviera and Corsica. We've never been to any.

Our dilemma mostly arises because my parents are taking a European cruise this summer also, so we are trying to plan our trip around theirs so we can meet up with them, due to some health issues, we may never have this opportunity again.

My parents arrive in Barcelona, then go to Marseille, Monte Carlo, St-Tropez, Corsica, some places in Italy and end in Rome. Unfortunately they only spend one day at each port.

Originally, we thought about meeting them in Barcelona for a few days before heading out on our own to the French Riviera. But now I'm worried, that's just too much.

Should we just spend our whole trip in the French Riviera? If we meet them in France, where would be a good spot to do so between Monte Carlo and St-Tropez?

If not just in the French Riviera, do we add on Barcelona, Paris or Corsica?

Thank you for your help! I know there are a lot of factors at play here.
