The Alps, Provence, Riviera and Tuscany

Jump to last reply

We are flying into Milan and would like to go to The Alps, Provence, the Riviera and Tuscany. We have 17 days to visit those areas. My goal in the Alps is to hike and see the beauty and in Provence we would like to see Arles and St Remy because we are Huge van Gogh fans. We would then naturally go through the Riviera, although there isn't a true stop I would like to make and then at the end we would like to go through wine country in Tuscany.

We were planning on leaving Milan and going straight out the Briancon direction, through Gap and then down to Provence, through the Riviera and then into Tuscany and back to Milan where we fly out of as well. If we had time we would like to go up to Lake Maggiore and maybe visit Locarno before heading back to the airport. We are renting a car for the trip.

Our biggest goals of the trip are visiting wineries and seeing van Gogh's work locations. Hiking in the Alps would be spectacular as well. I would like my husband to see the beauty, especially by the lakes.

Does anyone have suggestions or comments on the route? Any tips on some fantastic towns in any of the areas? Any winery tips?

We are truly "winging it" and haven't made any hotel reservations. I would like to but we just don't know enough to decide on what are good base camps for the areas. I do know we don't really care about spending any time in the Riviera except for maybe a day, so the rest of the trip would be the Alps, Provence and Tuscany.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Julie
