Help with south France leg of trip

Jump to last reply

We’ll be traveling in March 2014, using miles to fly SFO to CDG.
So far we have reservations as follows:

Paris March 12-14 depart 15 Hotel St. Augustin (military affiliate club)
March 15-16-17 the dilemma – Barcelona plus…Nice?
Impruneta (agriturismo outside Florence) March 18-21 dep 22
Venice March 22-23-24 Locanda Orseolo
Mar 25 VCE- CDG-SFO.
We’ve been to Paris, Tuscany, Venice previously (and these lodgings).
We are adding Barcelona this trip specifically to do a Gaudi tour and see mosaics and architecture. We assume we’ll spend two nights here.
We like trains and are keen to take TGV train to the south through France, even though we'd just have one night there en route to Barcelona or vice versa.
Questions: TGV to Nice (or Aix?), overnight in Nice, then fly to Barcelona, then fly to Florence? Or go Train-Barcelona-fly to Nice then Florence? Second option seems best direction but the flights to Florence look better from BCN.
We’d like to spend time in the south/ Provence, but on a future trip, since March doesn’t seem like the best time for it and we'd like more time. If we have one stop, does Nice seem best option? (Best for this trip =reasonable in and out, interesting, walkable, etc.)
