Travel to France & Switzerland with my daughter next summer

Jump to last reply

My daughter and I have begun planning a trip for June 2016 to France & Switzerland. We would like to start in Paris, then take a train to Nice and southern France and finally rent a car and driving into Switzerland. We are planning on an 8-10 day trip. This is her sweet 16 birthday present and these were the top places she wanted to see. Does this sound reasonable?
I am also a little concerned about safety as I have always traveled with my husband. What should I plan on in regards to safety when traveling alone with a teenage girl to France and Switzerland?
I have not been in Europe since I was 16 so I don't know what to expect this time around. Neither of us will know the language very well. She is taking French in high school and I vaguely recall German. Will this also pose any issues for us?

Thank you!
