Help with Itinerary for Tours to Avignon to Geneva in 6 days

Jump to last reply

I am traveling in late May - early June with my 21 year old children (boy & girl). I expect they will get their fill of museums in Paris (May 18-26) so for the remainder of our trip I'd like to focus on interesting historical places like the Normandy beaches, Roman ruins (Arles?), and beautiful outdoors sights. We are not shoppers. After a week in Paris, then
Monday - May 27) - drive to visit Giverny and on to Bayeux.( hopefully seeing the Tapestry and museum that day). Spend the night in Bayeux.
Tuesday - we have booked an all day tour of the Normandy beaches. After that, my thought is to drive to somewhere near Tours for the night. (Suggestions please)
Wednesday visit Villandry (or Chenonceaux? or another chateau?) in the morning and go for a vineyard tour and wine tasting after lunch (suggestions please?). Then drive half way to Avignon - maybe Clermont Ferrand and spend the night. Is there a better place?
Thursday - Drive to Avignon and visit Avignon. Spend the night in Avignon
Friday - Breakfast in Avignon, visit Arles, drive to Nice or another pretty town on the Cote d'Azur. (Suggestions please)
Spend night in Nice (or somewhere else?)
Saturday - Morning in Nice (or?), the drive to Anncey. I know it is a long drive. I am not sure if I should take the route through Italy or Grenoble. (Suggestions please). Spend the night in Anncey.
Sunday - Day in Anncey (Hiking?). Spend night in Anncey.
Monday - Visit Chamonix. Spend night near Geneva Airport
Tuesday (June 4) - return rental car to French side (save drop off charge), 7:30 a.m. depart Geneva (cannot change flight). Need help in getting from French side to Swiss side as flight is to London.

So is this crazy?
What should I skip?
Is there a better way to do this?
Thanks in advance!
