South of France/Barcelona Itinerary Help!

Jump to last reply

Hello all! I am spending my summer May-August as an Au Pair (like a live in nanny) near Paris, France. I plan to explore lots of this region during my stay there.

At the end of the summer, I would like to take some personal time to explore the south of france and possibly Barcelona. Basically, I will have minimum 1 week, maximum 2 weeks (have to get back to Canada before school starts!) to spend in this area. I am not at the stage where I am booking anything yet (haven't even booked flights yet); I am more researching my options and deciding what I would like to see.

I would love any advice on South of France (I think I would like to see Nice, Cannes & Montpellier) and then possibly hop over to Barcelona for a few nights. How much should I budget for this part of my trip?

*Also - would it make more sense to fly into Paris, but out of Barcelona? Or would I be better to do a return from Paris, and just take the train from Barcelona back to Paris for my flight?

Thanks so much!!! (I am obviously new at this whole traveling solo/Europe thing...)
