Lot Valley AND either Italian Lakes or Cinque Terre

Jump to last reply

Okay, every time I think I've got an itinerary in mind I read something that changes our interests. Hubby and I are now wanting to go to the Lot Valley in France and then do a week in Italy. Here are my dilemmas:

We can take a nonstop to Paris from Houston. We will stay in Paris for two nights (we have both been here extensively in the past).

We would then either fly to Rodez or take a train.....which is most logical? Or is there a better locale to start the trip in this region?

We are thinking we will end up in either Bordeaux or Toulouse at the end of our week in France - so should we fly to Milan for the Lakes or can we take a train more directly to the Lakes without too much trouble;

OR should we go to Cinque Terre instead? If so, can we take a train there?

OR, should we go to the Tuscan towns of Pienza, etc and spend our time in Tuscany/Umbria?

We weren't planning on having a car if we went to CT or Lakes. Is that okay? I've read you must have a car for Tuscany.

Thanks all!
