Trip to Austria, Switzerland & South of France

Jump to last reply

My wife and i have booked flights which have us arriving in Vienna on Friday morning, September 5, 2014 and departing Marseille 17 days later on Sunday, September 21.
After two or three days in Vienna, we were planning on renting a car and making our way through Austria and Switzerland and down into Provence/French Rivera, ultimately dropping the car off in Marseille. We also were thinking of allocating 5 - 7 days in each of Austria and Switzerland and 3 - 5 days in Provence.
In Austria, we were thinking of spending time in Vienna, Krems, Durnstein, Bad Ischt, Hallstatt, Salzburg and Innsbruck. In Switzerland, we were thinking of Zurich, Lucerne, Berne , Lausanne and Geneva. In the South of France we were thinking of Nice, Menton, Saint-Tropez and Aix-en-Provence before finishing off in Marseille. Looking into the future, there would be a chance that we would make it back to France for a longer stay.
Some of the questions we have are: Where might we invest more/less time? If we need to drop some destinations, which one(s) might we drop? Are there can't miss/must do experiences? Are there suggestions with respect to the car rental? Should we drop the car off in Austria and take the train to Zurich and pick up another car there? Are there recommendations regarding accommodations in any of the destinations? Are there any broader suggestions and recommendations?
