Paris-Provence-Tuscany

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I are planning our honeymoon (yay) for next fall (2013) and are feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the choices. I've scoured through several forums and find them SO helpful so I thought I'd throw my own specifics out there and see what comes up. Right now, we are looking at about a 12-15 day trip and here is the rough plan-

* Fly into Paris- train to Provence (Aix), renting a car and staying in St. Remy- train to Tuscany (we haven't yet figured out home base for Tuscany). Here are some questions I have for all of you out there who have done similar trips:

- Does it make the most sense to arrive (by train) into Aix for a rental car or would Avignon be better?

- Any recommendations for a good home base in Tuscany and day trips

- We would LOVE to stop in Portofino on our way from France to Tuscany. Is this something that we could do without completely going out of our way?

- Once we find a good village to stay in, we were thinking about renting a scooter in Tuscany rather than doing another rental car. Has anyone done this and if so, any recommendations/advice?

We aren't really interested in shopping (although poking in and out of a few little shops would be nice). Our focus is the culture of the areas we'll be visiting-really experiencing the food, wine, people. Thank you for ANY insight/help you can offer, it is very much appreciated!
