Planning

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip next fall - so we have a long time to plan. But trying to nail down where/what/how. We are a couple in our early 60's that are active. We enjoy history, good food, beautiful buildings/cathedrals, etc. We are in good physical condition and active. My husband is taking a sabbatical so we have at least 3-4 weeks to travel and longer if needed. Our idea is to fly in to Rome and spend 3 days there. We have both been there in the past. Then we want to go to Tuscany and pick a home base. We love staying in B&B's out on farms in the country rather than right in town. We would like to see Florence, Sienna and Pisa and whatever else is recommended. Then we will head to the south of France to Provence to see St. Remy, Avignon, Aix en Provence, Gordes, Cassis. Then over to Languedoc to see Nimes, Aigues Mortes and Pon du Guard. After that we would like to go to Spain since we have never been to that country. We were thinking about staying in the Barcelona area. Does this rough plan sound like it would be managable int he amount of time that we have? We don't want to move every other day so that is why we would like to pick about 3 or 4 areas to stay and then do day trips. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.
