Three Couples Three Weeks Spain, France and Italy-- Advise needed:)

Jump to last reply

Hi there Fodorites! We are planning a trip to Spain France and Italy next Sept. and need some advise from the most knowledgeable forum on the web IMHO. We are three couples, related to each other, have travelled together years ago and are in our late 50's and early 60's. This is what we have so far:
Aug. 30 Dept Toronto AC direct to Barcelona
Aug.31 Arr. BCN 10:20 am . Get taxi to Casp Apt in the Eixample and get settled.
Sept. 1 Take an organized tour of Barc. ( yet to be arranged)
Sept. 2 - 5 TBD perhaps a couple of day trips, wine tour etc. beach day,
Sept. 5. Pick up our rental van - drive to Uzes France. 5 Hour Drive, according to Google
Sept. 6 Enjoy Market day there and stock the fridge
Sept. 7 - 11 Various day trips. Wine routes, Gigondas, Vacqueras..etc. Avignon. Lussan.
Advise on other day trips would be appreciated. Ales, or Arles ..never been.. I
myself have been to Uzes and have enjoyed to area, but my cousins have not
so thought it would be nice to show them areas we have gone while there.
Sept. 12 Depart for Italy and make our way to the Cuneo region. Since I am in the cheese
business, we are visiting a small village called Valcasotto in the Peidmonte.
Beppino Occhelli is the cheesemaker, and I will be arranging a cheese visit with
them. If anyone knows of a nice little town where we could stay for 2 nights, that
would be great. Wondered about Bra or Alba?
Sept.14- Depart this area
This part is tricky. Plan to make our way to the La Spezia area, although my BIL
advised us to think about Lucca. This would be a home base to visit Genoa, Cinque
Terre. Suggestions? He may be right...says La S is a busy seaport area..kind of big
Want to stay 4 nights.
Sept 18 Depart Italy and make our way back to Barcelona for a flight that leaves on the 20th

Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciatd! We had no choice about flying in and out of BCN as rental cars and timing were at issue. (I know a kind Foderite suggested leasing...but that ship has sailed - ty anyway).

Sorry for this long winded post, but i needed to give you some detail.....my DH would have asked in about 4 point form questions! lol

Thanks again...

Cathy Toner
