Honeymoon from Amsterdam to Nice a good idea?

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone! My fiance and I are thinking of doing something out of the ordinary for our honeymoon (likely around June 2014), and are playing with the idea of Europe.

I've been soaking up the information readily offered in these forums to compile a potential itinerary for our honeymoon, and right now here's what I've got:

Fly from DC into Amsterdam.
Spend Days 1-4 in Amsterdam (stay in the Jordaan area).
Explore the neighborhoods, possibly some museums, definitely the nightlife.

Travel to Nice, France. (Not sure if by flight or train).
Spend Days 5-13 based in Nice (probably in an apartment).
Take various day-trips as desired to explore the French Riviera... possibly to St. Tropez/Cannes/Antibes or something of that nature.

My question is -- does this possible itinerary make sense/sound good?
Are we spending enough time in Amsterdam?

& should we even go there, or does Nice sound more our pace?

A bit about us:
In the past we have vacationed to beaches along the East Coast (U.S.), and we tend to enjoy trips that aren't very "planned" so we can enjoy doing whatever we are in the mood for that day.
We are in our mid-late 20s, but on vacation we are only moderately-active (not into hiking or adventure, but we do like walking). I'm not really sure if Amsterdam is the ideal spot or if we should spend all our time in Nice instead.

Thank you in advance for your input!!
