Wife's first trip to Europe. Set on Paris & Rome, Need 3rd destination?

Jump to last reply

Planning a trip to Western Europe for early September, and traveling with my wife and our 18 month old daughter (11 days). It's my wife's first trip to Europe, i've been a handful of times. I know, I know, we should have fit Europe in before we had the baby.
We are set on Paris & Rome. We need recommendations for the 3rd spot. Since the first two are big cities, it would be nice to make the 3rd destination a smaller city, less mainstream, slower pace, with good scenery, good cafes and pastries.

We'll visit 3 destinations and stay a full 3 days in each place, to avoid to much moving around, checking in, checking out, transit. We'll leave a day of travel on the first and last day of the trip, for a total of 11 days. Traveling with a toddler is challenging enough, even if you're relaxing in one spot. The idea is to make the trip now, while the toddler flies for free, and I can carry her on a baby carrier and/or light-weight stroller.

Recommendations for the 3rd spot and advice is much appreciated. again, a smaller city, less mainstream, slower pace, with good scenery, good cafes and pastries.
