Southern Italy or Southern France?

Jump to last reply

I realize that to some, comparing Southern Italy and Southern France is like comparing apples and oranges. Yet, I would still like to know.... which one would you choose? My husband and I will be flying into Paris on June 24th and flying home on July 7th. We would like to spend a solid five or six days in Paris and then venture south. Ideally, the second part of our trip would be more relaxing... days spent on the beach or light sight-seeing. If we were to choose Italy we would want to try and squeeze in a day or two in Rome at the end before flying home.

Some background: We are in out late twenties. Our favorite aspects of traveling include beautiful scenery, good food and soaking up a different culture. We enjoy museums and historical sights but we don't need to see everything... we learned this in Greece this past summer! Our favorite part of Greece was lounging on our balcony in Santorini and walking down to the Bay for a swim. We spent some time in Italy a few years ago (Rome, Florence, Cinque Terre and Venice) and fell in love. My husband has traveled all over France except the south.

Would love to hear your thoughts! Thanks!
