Suggestions for France Italy

Jump to last reply

I'm new to this so I here it goes.
I'm traveling to Europe to meet up with my daughter who is currently living in France for the year. We are meeting in Basel (after I do a 2 week river cruise). We are planning to stay in Riquewihr for 5 days just to stop and flop together and catch up on each others news. Then, we have 11 days to fill in before ending with 8 nights in Paris.
Any suggestions on how to fill in the 11 days? We plan to head down to Montpellier for a few days and would like to 'have pizza in Italy' but otherwise, are open to suggestions. We'd both rather see fewer places and be able to relax than spend all out time traveling from place to place in train stations, airports or buses.
Is it worth hiring a car or better to train around. I haven't been to Europe in 30 years and am comfortable driving overseas but have no desire to drive in crazy cities, especially in Italy. If I did hire one, I would drop it off outside Paris and then use trains around Paris for the week.
Look forward to hearing people's ideas!
