July trip: Paris first, Italy or Spain after?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be in Paris for 5 days the second week of July (July 12-16; will be there for quatorze juillet, and her birthday is the day after on July 15). I want to make this trip a 10-12 day trip, if possible. I'm trying to figure out where we can go for the other 5 or so days. Our options as of now are:

1) south of France (Nice and a few other places).
2) Barcelona/Ibiza
3) Italy (Milan? Rome?)

I realize this is a very open-ended question and really just depends on preference. I will say my wife loves the beach and just likes being by water in general. I'm starting to think taking the TGV from Paris to Barcelona (staying there 4 or so days) and maybe taking a flight to Ibiza for a day or so would be good.

Does anyone have any thoughts? Ever done anything similar? Am I missing something here? Is it, for example, more efficient to go to the south of France or Italy? Just want to make sure I'm not signing up for a treacherous trip, or missing something about that time of year (maybe it's not a good idea to go to Spain in July? etc.)?

Thanks in advance.
