Is this realistic? 5 days Provance to Basel - reservations or wing it?

Jump to last reply

We will be in Provance for six days then we will have five days to get from Provance to Basel where we will drop off our rental car and we are taking a train to Berlin. (this is already set in place-except for train tickets - want to take the train vs flying to be able to see some of Germany out the train window and am aware that we will not be geting off the train until Berlin)

This is our thinking... May 29th - June 2 - five days
1. We have five days to get from Provance to Basel (where we have scheduled to drop off the car at the French side of the Airport on June 2nd. (rental company is aware of tentative plans for Switzerland and Italy)

2. Husband wants to see and possibly drive some of the Alps of Switzerland. (he does not have to drive the alps but is thinking he would like to drive a small portion. Is this a bad idea???)

3. I would like to drive no more than 200 miles a day. (flexible)

4. We would like to have a kind of idea where we will end up each day - name of city or village (or is it fine to let it be loose and not book hotels etc??.)

5. Might like to drive along the French Rivera for a bit then into Italy maybe Mentone and head north ( The Cannes film festival is about this time so would dip south east )

6. Would like to see Monte Blanco. (Would this be a good place to stop for one night?)

7. Dont care for really big cities and would like stay with more rural areas- we enjoy scenic beauty, walking, history..exploring back roads...and visiting small towns.

ANY thoughts would be sooo much appreciated. I know there is a lot of questions-I dont want to come home and find out i missed "the best most beautiful place in the world by five miles"...This is a really big event in out lives.
