Netherlands, Alps, Tuscany

Jump to last reply

Hello. My wife and I are thinking about spending about a month in western Europe. Given our schedule, the best time for us to go is April (possibly into early May). I have read that touring (perhaps biking) in Keukenhof during that time should be lovely (tulips!). We would also like to visit the Alps (thinking Swiss or Italian but open to other regions). And then end up in Tuscany. Neither of us have been to the Alps and we both love mountains. I have read that visiting the Alps in April might not be the best time? Thoughts? Also, for our first time -- where are good places to spend a week or so? We enjoy trips that have time for moderate activity (moderate hiking and biking) and are comfortable for lazier days as well. We also enjoy walking around towns and small cities. We are not foodies. We like informal/affordable dining and are also happy to cook if we stay in an apartment, etc. We are comfortable with air, train, and car travel. We are a lesbian couple so look for places that will be welcoming or at least hassle-free. We are also looking for Tuscany recommendations (again for late April or early May). We spent a few days in Venice years ago and loved it -- this would be our first time in Tuscany. So, ideas for the Alps and Tuscany in April/early May (good home base for a week or so in each location)? Thanks.
