Need feedback... France to Italy

Jump to last reply

Since this is the best place to get really good travel advice... I'm back again to ask for experiences

traveling from Paris to Southern France then onto Southern Italy. I plan to take a train from Paris to an

interesting area in Southern France.My stay in France will be a total of 12 days. Then onto Southern

Italy for 12 days. (See below established time for tour in italy, have to arrive for tour to start on sept15).

I've not purchased plane tics yet so this time have flexibility. However the second part of trip visiting

Puglia including mattera is established. Therefore my travel in France Is determined. Departure on

SEPT 15, from an airport in southern France that flies into Bari,Italy. I will be joining 3 other women to

tour Puglia/Matera for 8 days. Then I will be traveling on solo to travel by car to The Solento for 4 days (Lecce/Otranto).
My questions;
*Which airport southern France ,itinerary not set yet so if experiences with nice places this area would appreciate? Need to fly into Bari,Italy.

*Any memorable experiences in southern area of France appreciated.

* Lastly I'll be flying out of Brindisi,Italy on SEPT 26 th to ? B/c I still have 4 more days before I have to

return to Boston. Would it be possible to see one more place before I leave Europe.... Yes This is a bit

@much.... But that place is only Barcelona, Spain, it would be for 5 days 4 nights then fly home SEPT 30?
I hope this is not too confusing...and as always I really appreciate your feedback. My last trip was such

a success bc of all the others just like You that

supported me with good feedback on my last trip to Europe/Italy Sept 2014. I did that solo by train/ferry

and it was my first time to Europe. I would have done some things a little differently but I would still visit

.the same places again... Each experience was unique!

Venice/Lake Como/Milan/Rapallo/Santa Margherita/Portofino/SanFuroso/Cinque Terre/Florence/Pisa/Siena/few Tuscan hilltop towns/Rome/Amalfi Coast: Praiano(base),Positano,Amalfi Town,Ravello /Ischia/Capri/Sorrento/Pompeii. Also hiked to the top of Mt. Vesuveus Volcano. Traveled with one CARRYON briggsnriley bag. I prefer not to back track. So Flew open jaw into Venice out of Naples( which I did not have time to visit).. wanted to see the museum of archiologica .... missed it.,closed. Also trevi fountain and Spanish steps fountains in Rome under repair and not operating .. Next time��

Peace,
JoAnn
