Italy and South of France with a toddler - Itinerary help!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be going to Edinburgh for a wedding at the end of August 2013 and would like to spend about 3 weeks in Italy/South of France. We are flying from Melbourne and will probably have to fly with Etihad airways (Milan is their only Italian destination) as I will be spending time with family after the wedding while my husband flies home, then will get a flight home with my parents who will be on holiday in Ireland. (Confusing huh!) I would really like a direct flight into Rome, rather than Milan so will have to work on this part of it and my parents (who like to fly with etihad for the convenience of direct flight to Dublin).

Anyway, back to my question. I had initially wanted to go to the Amalfi coast but it doesn't look like it would be a great idea with my two and a half year old son. We haven't been to Italy before so would like to see Rome, Venice (I know this is also difficult with a stroller so would limit time here to maybe 3 full days) and Tuscany (where we would hire a car). My husband would like to see some of the South of France but not sure where to go or how much time to spend there. Then we would need a flight to Edinburgh so I am guessing Nice would be pretty direct.

We were intending to use trains between cities then hire a car for Tuscany and also when we get into France. Accommodation will be looking into Airbnb for the cities (used it for Paris last year) but would love something beautiful and rustic in Tuscany with gorgeous views.

All advice would be gratefully received.

Thanks in advance!
